"Madhur is looking for a raw couple - completely new faces. He will be diverging from his serious genre in this new film. We were given a character sketch by him. We are treating that as a parameter for auditions," AMB Tatent Media Pvt Ltd managing director Preet Bedi told IANS.
On the character sketch of the hero, Bedi said: "A young guy who is still not a man and is in his maturing age, who is learning to take up responsibilities and is going through a rough patch. A guy who has broken up with his girlfriend but still has feelings for her... is born in a business family but wants to do something of his own."
Abmeribaari.com is an online portal where anyone can upload videos for screen test.
On the online portal, four initiatives are being held simultaneously - casting for Bhandarkar’s new film, channel V's VJ Hunt, Junior Genius and Folk Sartaaj.
The mentors of Junior Genius are in search of children for musical talent and those of Folk Sartaaj are looking for folk music performers.
The mentors who are judging the talent shows include Bhandarkar, music director Anu Malik and choreographer Saroj Khan.
Bedi said talent is not restricted to these four forums alone.
"We are focusing on these four as of now but there are other projects in pipeline. A lot of other conversations are going on, including opportunity for script writing and unusual talent," Bedi said.
