It seems the casting of BOMBAY TALKIES is packed with real people! After Karan Johar roped in YRF's peon's daughter, it was Anuarg Kashyap's turn to have people from real world in his short.

BOMBAY TALKIES: AMITABH BACHCHAN AND ANURAG KASHYAP

Anurag Kashyap has kept it real in the multi-director film, BOMBAY TALKIES. In his short film, Amitabh Bachchan, has played a significant role but also the security guard who mans the gate of the star's Juhu bungalow, Pratiksha.

A source says, ''Anurag's story revolves around a guy who wants to meet Amitabh Bachchan, as he's a big fan of the star. He lands up outside Bachchan's house every day to try and catch a glimpse of the star. And while trying to get closer to the house, the guard at the gate and the fan manage to interact.''

It seems Anurag did not want a professional actor to do this role. So he spoke to Bachchan and sought his permission to let him cast his real security guard in the film. Bachchan agreed, and as a result, the guard will now make his acting debut.

The film has been shot at various locations, including Pratiksha, which plays a crucial part in the story. Bachchan also allowed Anurag to shoot certain parts of the film inside his residence.

Producer Ashi Dua confirms the news, saying, ''Anurag was keen to keep everything around Pratiksha real. When we requested Mr Bachchan to allow his guard to play himself in the film too, he was happy with it.''

At the launch of the trailer of BOMBAY TALKIES, Anurag had said, ''The occasion to make this film is 100 years of cinema, but BOMBAY TALKIES is mainly about the impact cinema has in our everyday lives and how it is part of an Indian fan's life.''

BOMBAY TALKIES is comprised of four short films by directors Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap. It releases on May 3.
