Mumbai:Aamir Khan says that the cast of his latest production `Peepli Live` is apt considering that the story is set in a village.

He said, Mahmood Farooqui, the casting director of the movie has done an amazing job in the casting of the film, "it?s just so apt. We have picked up artistes from a theatre group called Naya Theatre by late Habib Tanveer."

When questioned about his favourite character from the movie, Aamir as usual had a very interesting answer, "I particularly like Amma?s character, she plays an amazing character. In fact she had also done a part in old Umraojaan." he said.

The Peepli Live team, led by debutant director Anusha Rizvi put a lot of thought behind the characters and were very clear about what they needed. Since the story was set in a village, the cast had to be such. That is one of the reasons that the movie has no big names, in terms of actors,associated with it.

The casting director of the movie, Mahmood Farooqui who is also Anusha Rizvi’s husband looked in the most unlikeliest of the places so he could get authentic looking actors. In fact, authenticity was such an important factor that many a new faces will be seen in this movie, many of them
belonging to the people of the village of Bhadwai in Madhya Pradesh, where the film was shot.

Says Mahmood Farooqui about the casting, "the process of casting was very interesting; in fact we discovered most of the actors after we reached the sets. Lot of the actors in the film come from the village itself.
