Mumbai: Hours after 'Rock On!!' director Abhishek Kapoor tweeted that he's shooting 'Kai Po Che', the movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel 'The 3 Mistakes Of My Life', followers were curious about the cast of the film.
The protagonists Govind, Ishaan and Omi will be played by TV actor Sushant Singh Rajput, actor Raj Kumar Yadav (of MMS Ragini fame) and TV actor Amit Sadh. The three actors were chosen after auditioning 150 newcomers.
They are currently in Gujarat in a start-to-finish schedule for the film. Kapoor, who refused to talk about the cast, says, "We are shooting in Vadnagar, which is on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. We had some permission problems for shooting in Ahmedabad, so we chose this place which suits the novel’s setting."
Back to directing
Kicked about his return to direction after three-and-a-half years, Kapoor says, "I’ve been working on scripts including the sequel of 'Rock On!!'. It feels good to be back behind the camera. Not all novels render themselves to screen adaptations. But 'The 3 Mistakes Of My Life' was simply waiting to go on screen.”
About his alleged fall-out with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, Kapoor says, "We had creative differences. I didn’t think Farhan suited the character that he was going to play. However there's no fall-out. We're doing the sequel to 'Rock On!!' right after I finish 'Kai Po Che'. The script for the 'Rock On!!' sequel is complete.”
