Filmmaker in search of Divya Bharti’s look-alikeJuly 14th, 2012 - 5:59 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 14 (IANS) Director Vikram Sandhu denies that his movie “Dream” is a biopic on Divya Bharti, but admits he is scouting for a look-alike of the late actress to play the lead role in his project.
Divya Bharti shot to fame at a very young age with films like “Shola Aur Shabnam” and “Deewana”. She died at a tender age of 19 in 1993, and the cause of her death remains a mystery.
It has a connect with Sandhu’s film, but he denies it.
“I don’t want to say whether it’s a biopic or not. All I can say is that it is the story of a young girl who becomes a star at a very young age and also dies at a very young age,” Sandhu told IANS.
“I have never said that the film is a biopic. The media has been saying so. But Divya Bharti has been my all-time favourite actress,” he added.
Currently he is busy casting for his film.
“I am just back in India after auditioning for the leading lady for my film. I have been to London, Italy and Greece to get the perfect actress for my film,” he said.
Asked if he is searching for a look-alike of Divya Bharti, he said: “Yes, sort of. We want someone who looks like her.”
Of the film’s shooting schedule, he said: “I will finish the shooting in just five months. We are planning to shoot the entire film in India, London and Dubai.”
