Bombay Talkies: Karan Johar casts Saqib Saleem alongside Rani Mukerji and Randeep Hooda in a segment in the film

The young actor will star alongside bigwigs in the film dedicated to 100 years of cinema

Saqib Saleem has indeed started this year on a high note. The actor has been chosen by Karan Johar to star in a segment of Bombay Talkies that he is directing alongside three other top directors of Bollywood – Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee. And what’s special and a treat for the young actor is that besides getting a chance to act alongside Rani Mukerji and Randeep Hooda, it will also be a movie that marks 100 years of Indian cinema. The actor can indeed pride himself on being a part of history!

The four short films that will be a part of the movie are 20 minutes long each, and tell a different story of how cinema has inspired people in their lives. For Karan’s segment, the director will be telling the story of a filmmaker who sells love through cinema; a story very much taken out of his own life!

Zoya will be doing a story of how cinema changes and affects the life of a small town girl in Indore, played by Katrina Kaif. While Anurag Kashyap is currently directing Amitabh Bachchan in a story set in Allahabad that deals with a fan’s obsession, his friend and fellow director Dibakar Banerjee is setting his film in Parel, Mumbai starring Nawazuddin Siddique which is about a Maharashtrian boy’s life – a tale inspired by Satyajit Ray’s film.

Bombay Talkies is a complete commercial flick that will release on May 3, which marks 100 years from the day Dadasaheb Phalke released Raja Harishchandra, India’s first motion picture.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Cant wait for this movie. Finally some actual actors. But I wished srk was in this movie with rani. And why katrina? ruined the great cast of brilliant actors only cuz she’s zoyas friend, Kareena deepik priyanka or even vidya for that matter would have been better.
