Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khattar is all set to debut in Majid Majidi's upcoming film Beyond The Clouds and the film-maker has roped in National Award-winning director Goutam Ghose to be a part of the film not as a director, but as an actor! An excited Goutam opened up to Mumbai Mirror and said,
"I'm halfway through and have just two days of work left. As a filmmaker, it's exciting to work with another director. He has a translator to communicate his instructions from Persian to English but given his involvement it's like we're speaking the same language. The film doesn't have any big stars, but Majidi is a star himself."
He further commented, "I was prepping for my Hindi-English-Italian trilingual whose working title is Lala and has a mix of Indian and Italian actors. We're looking for a 12-year-old Indian boy to play the lead. Meanwhile, Majidi's casting director, Honey Trehan, suggested I do this small but significant role in Beyond The Clouds. I was in Mumbai and it is a Majidi film, so I came on board."
The Iranian film-maker Majid Majidi also opened up about Ishaan Khattar and said, "Ishaan is a wonderful boy. He is extremely talented and I feel, he will have a bright future in the film industry."
