Akshay And Mohit
AAFTian Mohit Marwah, the nephew of Anil and Boney Kapoor, has become quite a regular at the Bollywood party circuit after shifting base from Delhi to Mumbai recently. Speculations have been rife that he is all set to follow in the footsteps of his cousins Sonam and Arjun.
TOI has learnt that he has been signed by Akshay Kumar and AshviniYardi’s company Grazing Goat Pictures, which had earlier made Oh My God, for its upcoming film Fugly. Directed by KabirSadanand, the film will also mark the debut of Olympic bronze-medallistVijendra Singh.
A source close to Akshay told TOI, “A friend of Ashvini told her that Anil has a nephew Mohit who is quite cute. She saw his pictures on the Internet and called him for an audition in Sadanand’s office”.
When contacted, AshviniYardi, confirmed signing Mohit and said, “We were very particular about the actor playing the lead role. We had auditioned many actors for the lead. We needed someone with a strong personality and a boyish charm. Mohit fits the requirements. He will be called Dev in the film”.
Elaborating on the film, the source said, “Fugly is a story of two boys and a girl. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalized. The film will go on floors in September and major portions of the film will be shot in Delhi and Ladakh”.
