The said actor will be chosen from a bunch of applicants, who will be chosen to play the male lead opposite the sultry actress in Helen, written and directed by Ajit Rajpal.
"The producers and the director auditioned over a 1000 actors and models, but felt that the applicant did not have the X factor to star
opposite me," says Poonam Pandey.
Producer Suresh Nakum adds, "That was when Poonam came up with a magnificent idea. She suggested that we look for her hero from the very micro-blogging site of Twitter that made her a superstar. We latched on to the idea and Voila!"
The hunt would require the contestants to make their 2 minute audition video during which they are free to enact a movie scene or dialogue of their choice to the best of their ability.
To be a part of the contest the contestants are supposed to log on on to www.bluegape.com/helen and enter their video in the list opened by Poonam Pandey herself through a video in which she has said that she is looking for male lead to star opposite her.
The website www.bluegape.com is a unique way of expressing thoughts in a listical manner in which people can create lists of their choice and keep in open or closed as per their choice.
This list opened by Poonam Pandey herself will allow as many contestants, to be a part of the contest and will be the first of its
kind talent hunt to find a male lead by a female lead on a social media platform.
