Not many are aware that Subhash Ghai had never planned to direct BLACK & WHITE himself. “I was keen to produce this film, but was on the lookout for the director who’d do complete justice to it. But I soon realized that they wouldn’t be able to do justice to the subject the way I would. That’s when I decided to take the responsibility myself,” the Showman reveals.
Ghai is all praise for newcomer Anurag Sinha’s acting prowess. “I wanted a new face to carry off this role and when I screen-tested him [he’s an FTII graduate], I knew I had found the face for this role. When I launched Jackie [Shroff] in HERO, I had a tough time explaining the basics of acting to him. But it was easier with Anurag. He knew what the role was, he prepared his notes, he would come on the sets completely prepared. He’s an incredible actor, watch out for him,” Ghai states.
Such lavish praises from none other than Ghai means a lot!
