While Aazaan star Sachiin Joshi’s forthcoming film, Mumbai Mirror, co-starring Mallika Sherawat is about to go on floors next month, buzz is that actor Nana Patekar has been approached to play the main villain.
The film has been directed by Ankush Bhatt of Bhindi Bazaar Inc fame. It mirrors the Mumbai underbelly and revolves around the nexus between powerful corrupt dance bar lords and the Mumbai Police. Rumour mills suggest that Nana has been offered the pivotal role of Shetty — the most dreaded character in the story.
Sachiin plays a quirky cop in this ‘realistic-commercial’ potboiler, while Mallika essays the role of a dance bar queen. “Mumbai Mirror has music by composer Anand Raj Anand and shooting is expected to commence next month with a wrap in three months flat,” says a source from the film’s unit.
“The other intriguing part is that Sachiin might go in for either a bald look or a military-style crew haircut for this movie. He’s also been loosing weight and training hard on his physique to fit into the role of a whimsical cop,” the source adds.
