Mumbai, June 13 -- This will perhaps be the first time that film-maker Madhur Bhandarkar will be working with an all-new cast for his upcoming film, which is based on the lives of calendar girls.
While the glamour quotient of the film is bound to be high, Madhur is ensuring that his leading ladies all have exceptional acting skills to match their looks.
To go about the screening process, the film-maker's team, which is auditioning the girls, has been asked to prepare special DVDs with some of the best scenes from his past films like Chandni Bar (2001), Fashion (2008) and Heroine (2012).
"The girls who qualify after the first round of auditions are being asked to rehearse those scenes (from the earlier movies) for the final round," says an insider.
It's believed that the pre-requisite to clear the audition includes good looks and a great figure. "Having worked with talented actors like Tabu, Raveena Tandon, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Madhur wants to ensure that he launches talented actors in his next. That's why he has asked the contestants to rehearse the scenes," adds the insider.
