Sikandar's first innings in B-Town (2008's Woodstock Villa and Summer 2007 ) was a lacklustre one. The actor has now signed his first film with an A-grade director. He will feature in Ashutosh Gowariker's new film Khelein Gay Hum Jee Jaan Se and this might just be the boost his career needs.
Mere buddy ko lo!
A source reveals, "Sikandar is very close friends with Abhishek Bachchan, who plays the protagonist in this film, and he was the one who recommended his buddy's name for the part. Ashu had already auditioned a couple of newbie actors for the same role but hadn't locked anyone."
The source further adds, "Ashu called Sikandar and made him audition for the role, like all others actors vying for the role. Ashu liked what he saw and signed him the following day. Getting this movie is a big step for Kirron Kher's son's career."
Celebrations in order
The movie is a four-hero project. AB Jr plays main lead while Sikandar will play second lead. Sikku signed on the film last week and over the weekend, even threw a party for close friends at one friend's house in Bandra celebrating the fact that he landed the film."
The film mounts sets later this month and will release by 2010-end.
Ashutosh remained unavailable for comment. Sikandar refused to comment on the story, citing he was too busy in an important meeting.
