Aamir Khan ropes in an all theatre cast for ‘Peepli Live’
Mumbai: Known for his love for perfection, Aamir Khan seems to have stumbled upon the sure shot mantra of securing a hit once again. The actor, who has churned out one hit after the other ever since he became a producer, has now got onboard a stage cast for his next production ‘Peepli Live’.
The cast has been selected from among the graduates of late Habib Tanvir`s Naya Theatre. And all, except Raghubir Yadav, are aspiring actors hoping to make it big in films.
Confirming the news, a source from ‘Peepli Live’ said, "It’s an all new cast. Aamir attended the casting along with Anusha and selected the guys. He was very keen on having fresh faces. All the actors have graduated from Naya Theatre and come from the interiors of Madhya Pradesh."
What’s interesting is the fact that this isn’t Aamir’s first tryst with theatre. The actor has previously worked as an assistant for a Gujarati play much before he made it big in Bollywood.
"He`s extremely attached to ‘Peepli Live’ as it involves theatre actors. When he met them, AK narrated his own experiences of working backstage and being an assistant," reveals the source.
