Persian prince angling for movie roleMarch 26th, 2008 - 1:07 pm ICT by admin
New York, March 26 (IANS) Disney top bosses are upset with Persian prince David K. Zandi, who is trying to beat out Orlando Bloom, Milo Ventimiglia and Zac Efron to star in the movie “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time”. Zandi is a self-stylised Persian prince and he is reportedly passing around a “Worldwide Audience Poll” that shows him as the favourite of 17 million movie fans, pagesix.com reports. The film is an adaptation of the famous video game and will be directed by Jerry Bruckheimer.
Zandi said: “Most people are fascinated that a real Persian with royal lineage could be hired to play this role.”
But a representative for Disney countered saying, “There is absolutely no truth to the rumour that Zandi is being considered. The speculation is self-created.”
