Amitabh Bachchan did it and so did Om Puri. Irrespective of their acting prowess, these actors have not hesitated from doing cameos in films. No wonder that a bevy of Bollywood actors agreed to essay comparatively smaller but unusual characters in Bejoy Nambiar's upcoming film David.
In this action thriller, Sarika, Tabu, Remo D'Souza, Prahlad Kakkar and Milind Soman are coming together. Sarika is shaking a leg on the iconic yesteryear song Dama dum mast kalandar while Tabu, who is known for being choosy about her roles, is the surprise element. "Nobody knows for sure who exactly she is portraying in the film and given her acclaimed standing, it's quite intriguing," says an insider.
And choreographer Remo, who is currently directing his second Bollywood film, is having a significant yet small role. "He shares a good friendship with Bejoy and that explains his presence in the film," adds the source. Apparently, the idea behind putting together so many well-known names is to build up interest among the audience.
"After Shaitan, the audience expect a lot from Bejoy so he's making the most of this by an unusual casting in his next. He already has Vikram, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Vinay Virmani playing the lead roles so it explains the curiosity," concludes the source.
