Amit Trivedi to make acting debut in a Freida Pinto film?

Music director Amit Trivedi will be making his debut as an actor in Michael Winterbottom’s (director of Angelina Jolie starrer A Mighty Heart) film Trishna, which is based in India

Music director Amit Trivedi’s trippy music, starting with Anurag Kashyap’s Dev.D, has got all big names of Bollywood queuing up at his door. But coming up with interesting tunes is not all this man does. Surprise, surprise, he will soon be making his debut as an actor in Michael Winterbottom’s film Trishna, which is based in India, just like Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire was. Amit has been roped in to do this one thanks to his mentor Anurag Kashyap, who will also play a role in the film, which stars Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed. Both Amit and Anurag are cast more or less as themselves (or atleast when they began) – struggling music composer and struggling film director respectively. Anurag’s wifey Kalki Koechlin will also be a part of the film’s cast we heard. We know that Amit is a very shy guy in real life and it will be interesting to see him on the big screen sharing screen space with his mentor. At the shoot of the film, Kashyap was seen pulling Amit’s leg more than once about the acting gig. Will Amit’s acting chops have the same punch as his music does? Now that will be decided only when the film releases, but the young music director sure was having a great time bonding with the cast and crew during the shoot. We only hope that Amit will continue to make his unique brand of music in his newly acquired studio, and not succumb to the lure of the arc lights and the clap of that board.
