Boney Kapoor, producer of the upcoming release Tevar reveals that his son Arjun Kapoor was responsible for casting Sonakshi Sinha. Casting of Sonakshi Sinha as the female lead in the movie was Arjun's idea as he felt she suited the role.
"Initially, Arjun suggested Sonakshi. He told me that Sonakshi
suits the role and also he wanted to work with her. He was
definitely the first person to push this thought in my mind. And I
also felt that she would be appropriate," Boney said.
Boney says neither has he ever faced any problems while working
with his family members nor have they ever complained about him
because he feels as a producer he has never let them compromise on
their creative freedom.
He said, "They follow their own instincts. My brief to them is
only through the director. Finally it is his call. Of course, on
the spot thereare some suggestions but it is just to add my own bit
into it. I never cross the boundary of exercising my rights either
as a family member or as a producer of the film."
He further added, "They are individuals whether it is my wife,
my brother and now my son. They are responsible, they are talented
and they are aware of what is right for them."
When asked if ever during the shooting of Tevar, the
father took over the producer in him, Boney said, "Well only during
the action scenes. I hoped that it would go on well. Thats about
"I was there more as a guardian of the project because this is
the director Amit Sharma's first film, my brother Sanjay's first
production. I was more like the head of the family, rather than the
big boss producer," Boney said.
Tevar releases on January 9. 2015.
