Cast and crew

CAST

Kiran being a classical dancer herself was very attached to this script, she lived the film and related with every characters very personally. After few many months of working endlessly on screenplay, the biggest task was selecting the CAST of the film.

Dev

During one of director trip to the south on recce she met this talented actor model and cricketer Captain of ccl Kochi team. Rajeev Pillai, extra ordinary combination of talent complimenting with a 6-pack body immediately impressed the director. he is a power house of talent and he fit the character of ‘Dev’ perfectly, the moment she met him she knew that this boy had something in him, he was called for an audition to Mumbai, he gave a lovely performance in the audition and was signed as the lead, this would be his debut in the Bollywood industry. His performance in the film has been outstanding. Ismail Darbars comment on Rajeev Pillai when he first met him ‘yeh ladke mein namak hai’ re-assured the director of choosing Rajeev Pillai.

Sanjukta

The character of Sanjukta was very demanding, it needed someone really innocent and vulnerable, the audition took place in Bombay, innumerable fresh faces auditioned for this role, but nothing could satisfy the director. Kiran was very disappointed with the way things were going, but then one night as she was watching ‘murder 2’ at home she saw a character being played by Sulagna Panigrahi, it caught her attention then and in the middle of the night she called up her casting director to get a meeting with Sulagna, they met the next day and Kiran knew she has found her ‘SANJUKTA’

Guruji

Guruji was the most important casting for the film, veteran actor Girish karnad was offered this film and he agreed to play the part of guruji after finding story really hard hitting and very personal as he had acted dance guru 20 years back in south film. He found tremendous potential and conviction in the director and production house. What followed after that was just magic as the 3 main actors with the director struck a brilliant chemistry and went on to making a brilliant film.
