Why Prateek chose fresh faces for 'From Sydney...'Jul 22, 2012 IANS
Veteran filmmaker Pramod Chakravorty's grandson Prateek is set to revive the family banner with upcoming film "From Sydney With Love". Being a known banner, Prateek could have easily cast big names, but he chose to go with fresh faces.
"'From Sydney with Love' required fresh faces because of the storyline. Even if I had an option of choosing the best, I would have considered new faces," Prateek told IANS.
"The established ones have set the bar and they all come with an age-factor which doesn't justify the script of student movie," he added.
"From Syndey with Love", is slated for Aug 3 release and features Sharad Malhotra, Bidita Bag, Evelyn Sharma and Reshmi Ghosh.
Among the big names, Prateek hopes to work with actor Akshay Kumar in future.
"Maybe in future I would love to work with Akshay. Even if I promised to cast him in my next film, an actor of his stature requires time and budget," he said. Click the Movie button below for more info:
