We do not know if the Commando actor and the Paan Singh Tomar can pass off as similar looking people, however Tigmanshu Dhulia has cast these two actors as two different versions of the same character in his upcoming film
Vidyut Jamwal stepped into Irrfan Khan’s role in Bullett Raja after the latter had date issues, however now this duo will be seen playing the same character in different age groups in Bichhde Sabhi Baari Baari. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia will cast them together , but Irrfan and Vidyut wouldn’t be seen together in the same frame. The duo will be cast as the younger and older versions of the same character. Dhulia confirmed this news, he said, “My next film is Bichhde Sabhi Baari Baari. It’s the story of two friends and their relationship over a period of 35 years. Manoj Bajpayee and Irrfan Khan have been cast as the older avatars of the buddies, whereas Amit Sadh and Vidyut Jamwal would play the younger versions of the same characters.”
But surely Manoj and Irrfan are accomplished enough as actors to pull off the age span? “I don’t think so, Irrfan and Manoj can’t look 25. That’s the age when the two protagonists become friends. I can’t have Irrfan and Manoj playing 25-year-old men. That period was something else when Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz used to play college students. Today’s audience won’t accept Irrfan or Manoj as 25-year-old, just as they won’t accept Vidyut and Amit as a 50-year-old or a 60-year-old. So I need two sets of actors,” said the acclaimed filmmaker.
Vidyut and Amit will now have to spend some time with Irrfan and Manoj to get a hang of their body language.
