Its fun watching real-life father-son jodis on the big screen. Big B and Abhishek Bachchan teamed up for a number of successful and unsuccessful films. More recently, Dharmendra teamed up with his two sons, Sunny and Bobby, in Apne. Earlier, Jeetendra and Tusshar also featured together in a Balaji film. Now Mithun Chakraborty and son Mimoh have been cast together for the first time.
Producer Anjum Rizvi, who has produced Charas and Ahista Ahista in the past and is co-producing WEDNESDAY with UTV [releasing in September], has teamed the real-life father and son in his new venture, titled Fast Forward.
Fast Forward, isn't it an odd title? "It suits the subject of my film. I am attempting a musical, a dance-based film and the title [Fast Forward] is synonymous with music," Anjum informs me. To be directed by Zaigham Ali Syed [he's into the television industry], Fast Forward will co-star Shekhar Suman's son Adhyayan Suman, Sheena and Sabeena [a student of Anupam Kher's acting school].
Anjum plans to begin filming in September. Music will be composed by well-known DJ Akbar Sami.
