Amitabh Bachchan To Face 1000 Real Students In Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan
Filmmaker Prakash Jha wants everything to look natural in his upcoming Amitabh Bachchan starrer Aarakshan. The director is making everything possible to give a real touch to the flick and in a bid to do so around 1000 students from Madhya Pradesh were trained to face the camera.
In the movie Big B is portraying the role of a professor and will have a class full of real 1000 students. Jha instead of hiring actors for the student role opted to cast real students in the movie and all of them happily agreed to do so.
Jha informed, "We selected a thousand students from Bhopal and the rest from Madhya Pradesh with no experience in acting at all. We put them through a month of acting workshops.”
He added, “By the end of their training, they were all ready and also understood what the camera required."
This is not the first time that Big B is essaying the role of a teacher as in his famous movie Mohabbatein he played the role of a strict Gurukul strict headmaster.
