Rakeysh Mehra "I cant imagine any Bollywood heroine as a 19 year old"

A few days back it was reported how director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is currently struggling to find a teenager girl opposite Amitabh Bachchan for his next (on father-daughter relationship) which is an official remake of Oscar nominated Belgian film 'Iedereen Beroemd (Everybody's Famous).

When questioned around why he was auditioning fresh faces when he could possibly rope in an existing Bollywood heroine, Mehra admitted that he wasn't quite sure if any of the existing actresses in Bollywood would be able to pass off as a 19 year old.

"There are capable actresses in the industry but I can't imagine anyone who can look like a 19 year old," rues Mehra, "This is the reason why I am insisting on casting a fresh face. I can't hurry it up as well since the girl needs to have the kind of confidence in order to stand up in front of Mr. Bachchan."

Well Rakeysh, it was not so long ago when Jiah Khan actually managed to do that in 'Nishabd'. But then it was of course a different space and setting. With the relationship changing from a man-woman love story to that of a father-daughter, the challenge of course belongs to a different scale altogether.

Any takers?
