Bollywood flick My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves is all set to be released in theatres across the country on January 11.
But the movie has just been kept to intrigue the audience to reach the theatres, as it has nothing to do with the old classic flick.
The movie stars Amrita Rao and debut actor Nikhil Dwivedi and is directed by E Niwas, who won awards for his well-acclaimed movie Shool in 1999.
My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves introduces Nikhil in the role of Anthony Gonsalves. He plays the title character, who dreams of hitting it big one day. He starts off, by becoming a bartender.
The film revolves around this bartender, who dreams of becoming an actor someday, but ends up meeting a don played by Pavan Malhotra.
"Like the tagline of the film need, it's a film about ordinary dreams. It's a film about an ordinary man who has extraordinary dreams. He wants to be a huge star and he is from very ordinary background. The movie is about his strife and struggle to achieve his dreams," said Nikhil.
Unknown to him, the three brothers, who own the bar, are conducting illegal activities. Unfortunately one day, Anthony is witness to a brutal crime and is forced to fight for his life.
Along the way, he meets and falls in love with Amrita (Ria in movie), but will he survive long enough to make an honest woman out of her remains the film's mystery.
"My role in this movie is of a Catholic girl, whose name is Ria. She is an assistant director in the movie. She is working with a well-acclaimed lady director. It was a great job to do a real life role. It's not a fictitious character," said Amrita.
Along with the lead pair, the cast includes Anupam Kher, D Santosh, Hrishita Bhatt, Lilette Dubey, Mithun Chakraborty, Mukesh Tiwari, Pawan Malhotra, and Saurabh Shukla.
In an attempt to do everything right for his film, the director brings on board music wonders like Pritam and Himesh Reshammiya. He even ropes in new composer, Sachin-Jiggar for one of the tracks.
