Though newcomer Pulkit Samrat a.k.a. 'Bittoo Boss' seems to be the darling of his makers who are putting money on him, not many are aware that the beginning wasn't as rosy for him during the audition stage. Apparently there were quite a few frontiers that he had to cross before being finalised for the part of the much coveted title role.
"Ironically he did very well in the first audition. It is just that he turned slightly shaky in the second audition," reveals a source attached to the film, "As the characterisation was further explained to him, he was slightly apprehensive about how he would approach the part. This is when director Babul had further conversations with him about the role. He was a little stiff and Babul wanted him to further open up."
Excusing himself for a while, Pulkit stepped aside from the audition, only to return and share the parts that were bothering him. Since in real life he isn't as extrovert as Bittoo, Pulkit had to do some more home work before readying himself for the part.
"He came back and asked me to audition him all over again. This time around he came out very clean and scored quite well. I was convinced that he was the man for the job," smiles Babul who then summoned him as well as film's leading lady Amita Pathak for further rounds of auditions and readings before finalising them for the coveted parts.
With music by Raghav Sachar, BITTOO BOSS (which comes with the tagline of 'Sab Ki Legaa...!' releases all over on 13th April.
