It has been over 100 days since it was first announced that Amitabh Bachchan would be acting in an official remake of Oscar nominated Belgian film IEDEREEN BEROEMD (Everybody's Famous). However what kept this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film from moving ahead was the casting of another crucial character in the film - a teenage girl.
"The film is a heart warming tale of a father and his daughter. While Amitabh Bachchan has been finalised to play the part of a father who wants his daughter to become a famous singer, the girl is yet to be cast," informs a source who has been following the film's progress.
However as things stand today, the girl is far away from being finalised which means that it would be some more time before this yet untitled film goes on floors. Since the girl's role is quite substantial and requires an actress of substance, Mehra doesn't want to rush up the process.
"Yes, we are still looking for a girl who would play Mr. Bachchan's daughter. A massive hunt for getting the right personality is still on", says Mehra who would be working with Amitabh Bachchan for the second time after AKS, his debut directorial outing.
