Rakeysh Omprakash Decided to Work with Fresh Ones

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who has worked with superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Waheeda Rahman and Abhishek Bachchan, has decided to work with fresh faces. And that’s why the filmmaker decided to produce Teen They Bhai. He says,

“As a production house, we want to grow and we want to encourage films by newcomers. I loved the story of Teen They Bhai and I hope the audiences will love it too. For the first time, I have just produced the film without directing it and I am happy about it. I see a lot of new talent now waiting to be encouraged and given a chance.”

Explaining further he says,

Many times, people come to see a film just because a big star is starring in that film. And the expectations are huge also. That sometimes affects a film’s success.”

And precisely, that’s what he’s doing for his next film on noted athlete Milkha Singh.

“No big stars for this film. If I take a big star, then people come to the theater hoping for some song-dance sequences and some fixed images in mind. But this is a real life character. So, we are going ahead with a fairly new face for a touch of authentication and reality.”

The film is about Milkha Singh’s struggle to overcome all odds which can inspire many across the country.
