Himesh Reshammiya's upcoming film Aap Ka Suroor- The real Love story has been on the dissection table months before its actual release sometime in July. Much of the speculation is about how small time TV producer turned wig clad music director turned Indian rock star and now actor, Himesh Reshammiya would look with his cap on throughout the film and the young age of its leading lady Rhea who is none other than child star Hansika Motwani. Hansika had played a child star in films ( like Koi Mil Gaya, Hum Kaun Hai and Jaago) as late as early 2004 and every one is zapped as to how her looks matured so much in such a short duration of time.
Himesh wanting to underplay her 'child star' image and focus on her new name Rhea might also have something to with the enormous age disparity between the pretty youngster , himself and the glamorous vamp - Mallika Sherawat in the film.
Hansika is reported to be only 15/16 while Mallika is close to 35. Mallika is looking her usual 'fab body' self in the promos and maybe that helps the cause of the film a little.
As for Himesh, he seems to be hovering in his forties. However chances are, the narcissist in him will surely claim to be otherwise. But then it's also hard to hide things when everything is on full display on 35 mm!!
Till now it's been an unusually incredible journey for 'His Himeshness' and it will be interesting to see if this big age disparity is actually hidden or not, amidst the foreign locations and the glossy treatment of the film as a whole .
