Rani, Preity or Sush?

The Big BRishi Kapoor starrer DOGS in the news yet again. In fact, the project has been making news even before it has officially gone on the floors. The latest development is that the makers of DOGS have approached Rani Mukherji to enact the role of the hooker in the film, while the Big B wants Preity Zinta for the role in question, according to a newspaper report. However, S.M. Ausaja, the producer of DOGS, denies the development outright. Neither have we [producer Ausaja, director Mukul Abhyankar] approached Rani, nor has Mr. Bachchan suggested Preity for the said role, he comes to the point without beating around the bush, In fact, I don’t think either Rani or Preity would be interested in doing our project. Reason? The role demands several love making sequences with Rishi Kapoor. These scenes are meant to be wild and raunchy and I think they [Rani, Preity] wouldn’t be comfortable doing that, Ausaja admits. Not that the makers of DOGS are still idle. We’ve some names in mind, like Sushmita Sen. Ideally, Sush would suit the role to the T. But we haven’t approached her yet. There’re other names as well, we’re busy contemplating whom to cast. But we’ve to take a decision before July, Ausaja states. The producer is all set to start the film in July by canning vital scenes on Rishi Kapoor and the leading lady. The Big B joins the unit from January 2005 onwards and his portions will be filmed in the next two months. DOGS revolves around the master-slave relationship. While Rishi has been cast in the role of a mentally deranged person, the Big B has been cast as a trainer of dogs, who has been banned from the dog-training academy. The story takes a turn when Rishi gets involved with the hooker. Instead, the hooker gets attracted to Bachchan, who ignores her all the while. That’s where the rift between Bachchan and Rishi seeps in. While Bachchan’s character has shades of grey, Rishi will be seen in an out-an-out negative role.
