Actor Vinod Khanna will now don the avatar of a mentor in producer Anjum Rizvi's latest musical FAST FORWARD. Zaigham Ali Sayed directs the film. For this role of a guide to youngsters, who are competing to showcase their dancing skills, Vinod has lost much weight.
Producer Anjum who has produced films AHISTA AHISTA and CHARAS and also completed a songless thriller WEDNESDAY (Naseeruddin Shah and Deepal Shaw) has cast actors like Rehan Khan (AWARAPAN), UK-based Sabina Sheema ( Zee Cinestars Talent Hunt winner), Akshay Kapur (ALAG), Bhavna Pani (DIL VIL PYAR VYAAR) and Siddhant Karnik (BREAKING NEWS) in the film. As in TV reality dance-shows, the young cast has been religiously rehearsing for the past three months. The film will also have Sonia Jaffer (Mahesh Manjrekar's partner in 'Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa') to choreograph all the dances in it.
Anjum hopes to release the movie early next year. The music of the film has been scored by DJ Akbar Sami.
