If you thought that the powers that be would decide against launching star kids in Bollywood after the mess that was Student of the Year 2, you were horribly wrong. The industry watches out for its own and according to a report by Filmfare, the latest two gearing up for their launch are Namashi Chakraborty and Amrin Qureshi.
Namashi Chakraborty is the son of veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty and Amrin is producer Sajid Qureshi’s daughter. The duo will be launched in a Rajkumar Santoshi film called Bad Boy. The film, which just went on floors on May 18, will be shot in Mumbai and Bengaluru over a period of two months while a few of the songs will be shot abroad.
“Rajkumar Santoshi has several rounds of auditions before deciding on them and thereafter put both of them through some acting workshops,” producer Sajid Qureshi told a leading daily.
“He (Mithun) met us and discussed the script. Any father would be pleased to have his child launched by Rajkumar Santoshi, it means the film is in safe hands,” he added.
