The actors start shooting for a new film together...
Nargis Fakhri, who was paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, is set for another film on the same lines. The actress had performed fabulously in Rockstar and with not many film in her kitty, this might be the time to redeem herself. The actress started shooting for Banjo, which is about a few banjo players, along with actor Riteish Deshmukh.
The film will be directed by Marathi film-maker Ravi Jadhav who will make his directorial debut in Bollywood. The film is about Banjo players from Maharashtra and how this art has been neglected despite numerous youngsters getting involved in it.
Yesterday the actors started the film and posed with a few musical instruments before the shoot started. This film seems like a mixture of Rockstar and Rock On and the actors gave us the Rockstar feel too. Riteish looked like Ranbir from Rockstar with the long hair and funky outfit. Nargis also looked scorching hot in looked cool in a black rugged jeans paired with a white jacket, black top and boots. Producer, Krishika Lulla was also present at the launch which happened near a port in Mumbai.
Speaking about his new look,
Riteish said, "Regarding the look it was Ravi Jadav's wish to do something different with the look. The character I play, which stays in a slum, has a unique style. So Krishika (Lulla) insisted that I should grow my hair long. We were about to start shooting last October, but was busy doing Housefull 3. I had to push the shoot to have enough time to grow the hair and style it accordingly."
Talking about his co-actor Nargis, the actor mentioned, "Nargis fits the role perfectly and is doing a brilliant job. Nargis, who plays the role of a young woman from US visiting India, is apt for the character because of her accent."
