Jackie Shroff is getting into shape for his comeback performance. He's all set to play the role of a 40-year old father in a film called Life Is Good. The once-sinewy actor has lately gained a lot of weight. Jackie has been asked to get rid of the extra baggage.
Says director Anant Mahadevan, "I want Jackie Shroff to be the sexiest dad ever seen in our films."
Besides the fact that it is designed to bring Jackie into the reckoning as a dependable middle-aged actor in a big way, the interesting aspect of the role is that it requires Jackie to play a father to a daughter in three different stages of her life.
A frantic hunt is on for three different girls from different age groups who would look convincing as Jackie's daughter in different phases of his character's life.
The shooting is to begin in September and actresses are yet to be found.
Says Anant, "I need three actresses aged 6, 13 and 20 who not only look like Jackie's daughters but also resemble one another in speech, body language height and other physical details. It's a tough call. We're working on it."
As the shooting date is around the corner, the hunt is getting intensified.
Says Anant, "We are looking at dozens of new faces. Jackie too is helping. He's very excited about the role. Notwithstanding some of the roles he has done in recent times, Jackie is a star. You can tell he is one when he walks into a room. I want Life Is Good to be the perfect re-launch for Jackie."
