Deepika not starring in Majidi’s ‘Beyond the Clouds’
Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi is one of the most prominent artistic geniuses in the world of cinema. The director is now all set to present to his audience his film Beyond the Clouds, which stars debutant actor Ishaan Khatter, half-brother of Shahid Kapoor, and south actor Malavika Mohanan. Set in Mumbai, the film is about a brother-sister relationship, their complex love for each other, the tragedies in their lives. The film is all set to hit the screens on April 20. Few days ago, several pictures of Deepika flooded the Internet and reports started coming in saying she has been cast for the film. But according to a report in some local newspapers of India, Majid has revealed that Deepika had only agreed to give costume tests and due to several reasons the collaboration could not materialise. He said, “You know, Deepika has great potential in Bollywood. In those days, she came, we were together, and we made those costume tests. We just wanted to see how the costumes looked in such situations. She accepted the offer to do that for us and I appreciate that. But unfortunately, for different reasons, we couldn’t carry the collaboration forward.” “At the beginning, it was more of a producer’s suggestion to use one star in the film. But one of the reasons why we couldn’t collaborate was her age. My character is 20 years old and it was difficult to make anyone look younger with makeup. Also, since we were about to shoot in real locations, it would have been difficult to shoot with Deepika around as she is a star. In future, if my stories demand her, we may collaborate,” he added. Kangana Ranaut was also in talks with the makers for the same character. It was then that Malavika Mohanan was finalised for the role. The debutant will be seen essaying the role of Tara, elder sister of Ishaan’s character Amir. Well, whether it was a wise decision or not, the audience will find out this Friday when the film releases. The film will see a 34-territory release including a wide release in Iran as well as in over 70 screens in the GCC region including Dubai, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, and Qatar, focussing on Indian as well as the local audience. Given its interesting storyline and treatment, the film has already travelled to various film festivals across the world and has mostly received a positive response.
