Bollywood’s young heroes Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan have been auditioned for the protagonist’s role in Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
Though Nair was impressed by both the actors, she wanted 3 months of their time from March 2011 to shoot the film. Both the actors are already tied up with assignments and they are not available. Nair is now auditioning a few Pakistani actors for the role.
The acclaimed director says that the protagonist Changez Khan in The Reluctant Fundamentalist is Pakistani and a unique character as he is rooted to Pakistan but is a global citizen. She said that the film will be shot in Delhi.
