'Fukrey' demanded fresh faces: Farhan Akhtar
Mumbai: 'Fukrey' features young actors, who are one or two films old, and producer Farhan Akhtar says the script demanded a "fresh cast".
Directed by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, the film features Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, Varun Sharma, Ali Faisal, Richa Chadda, Vishakha Singh and Priya Anand.
"Every story has its demand. We felt that if we would take a fresh cast for the film, so when you (the audience) will watch the film there would be no preconceived notion, image or idea in your mind. That was crucial for us, which is why we thought to have an interesting new cast," Farhan said here Wednesday at the launch of song "Karle jugaad" from the movie.
Praising Mrigdeep's sense of humour, Farhan said the director has done full justice to the film's script, written by Vipul Vig.
"Mrigdeep's sense of humour is very individual. It's not something I have heard or seen before, so that was exciting to do. I am happy that the situations and dialogues, which I have read in the script, have been translated very well in the film," Farhan said.
Made under Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment, 'Fukrey' is slated for a June 14 release.
