Vinod Khanna will now don the avatar of a mentor in producer Anjum Rizvi's latest musical Fast Forward. Zaigham Ali Sayed directs the film. For this role of a guide to youngsters, who are competing to showcase their dancing skills, Vinod has lost much weight.
The cast of Fast Forward includes Rehan Khan, UK-based Sabina Sheema (Zee Cinestars Talent Hunt winner), Akshay Kapoor, Bhavna Pani and Siddhant Karnik in the film. As in TV reality dance-shows, the young cast has been religiously rehearsing for the past three months. The film will also have Sonia Jaffer (Mahesh Manjrekar's partner in 'Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa') to choreograph all the dances in it. Anjum Rizvi’s Wednesday is also complete. The film stars Naseeruddin Shah and Deepal Shaw and is directed by Neeraj Pandey.
Fast Forward will release early next year. The music of the film has been scored by DJ Akbar Sami.
