Majid Majidi’s First Indian Film “Beyond The Clouds” – Ishaan Khattar To Debut With Deepika Padukone
Ishaan Khattar, son of Rajesh Khattar and Neelima Azim and half-brother of Shahid Kapoor is going to have a dream debut in none other than renowned Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s first Indian film, “Beyond The Clouds” which rolled today, on January 23 in India. Apparently Majid Majidi had approached the casting director Honey Trehan to scout talents for his forthcoming film. Ishaan, apparently, aced the look test and suited the role of the brother perfectly which got him this role in the prestigious filmmaker’s film.
Talking about his young leading hero, Majidi said, “Ishaan is a wonderful boy. He is extremely talented and I feel, he will have a bright future in the film industry.”
The film will have Ishaan playing one of the protagonists in this brother-sister story. Elaborating on the role, producer Shareen Mantri Kedia revealed that the young lad will play someone who is deeply connected to the ground and the city.
In November xXx : The Return Of Xander Cage star Deepika Padukone was seen doing a look test with Majidi at the famous dhobi ghat in Mumbai. The actor went almost unrecognized in the salwar kurta sans make-up look that she sported while seated on one of the ghats alongside Majidi. It was almost a day long shoot done by Majidi. She has no confirmation on her part yet. But most likely she will be signing at the dotted line soon.
AR Rahman, who has earlier worked with Majidi on “Muhammad: The Messenger of God”, will compose the music. A R Rahman‘s name has entered into the Oscar long-list for his fabulous work in Pele: Birth Of A Legend.
Ishaan’s proud brother Shahid Kapoor was also present at the film shooting. Ishaan has earlier starred in Bollywood film Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi, featured his brother Shahid Kapoor. He was also an assistant director in Shahid‘s 2016 film Udta Punjab. The proud brother posted a picture on social media and captioned it “This one’s ready to fly. Make us proud.”
Shahid’s post :
Majidi is best known for acclaimed and heart-warming films such as Children of Heaven and Baran. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker said, “Filmmakers like Satyajit Ray , whose work I adore, have represented India’s culture, rich heritage and the lives of common people to a global audience. These visions and images have stayed in my mind for years and cajoled me to make a film in India. Finally, I’m in Mumbai with a lovely team to narrate a story woven around the lives of common people.”
