The Rock On director Abhishek Kapoor is helming another youth-centric film Kai Po Che -- a film adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s celebrated novel The 3 Mistakes Of My Life. The movie is already on the floors and has a fresh starcast. The popular TV actor Sushant Singh Rajput of Pavitra Rishta fame will make his Bollywood debut with this film.
Like the book, the movie revolves around three characters - Ishaan, Omi and Govind. Sushant Singh Rajput gets to play Ishaan. Last week, writer Chetan Bhagat tweeted his pic from the sets and asked his followers to guess the name of the actor.
If Ishaan is Sushant, then who are playing Govind and Omi? Actor Raj Kumar Yadav of Ragini MMS and TV actor Amit Sadh (currently seen in a Tata Sky ad and also participated in Bigg Boss Season 1) are the two actors who play the other two protagonists. The three actors were chosen after auditioning 150 newcomers, reveal reports.
Director Abhishek Kapoor is quite excited to work with the new faces; he even tweeted about it, “So humbling to be on a set with incredible new talent. Feels like my innocence is kept intact. No greater joy than rediscovering a lost one!”
Wondering what the title Kai Po Che means? Since the movie is set in Gujarat and is being shot at the exact locales mentioned in the book, the title Kai Po Che is a Gujarati expression used during the Makar Sankranti festival when young boys fly kites and use their kite-flying skills to cut the string of each other’s kites called patang baazi. The first look of the film also shows the three actors standing on a terrace seeing towards the sky; also a tattered kite features on the first look.
