“One of my close friends had been an assistant to Anvita and even before I read the script, I wanted to do the film. I never had second thoughts about it and jumped to reach the auditions. It was the time Baba had passed away and I was broken and vulnerable,” he said at the event on Monday.
“When I reached (production house) Clean Slate Filmz, they made me feel so safe. I was coming with some baggage and was so scared. She (Dutt) was making an epic and even through all of that, she took so much care of me. I cannot thank her enough. The way she hugged me, it was precious,” the aspiring actor told reporters.
Anvitaa Dutt said she had met Babil at a party when he was 14. “When we were auditioning for Jagan, we tested many boys. Some were very interesting but we weren’t getting him. The friend that he mentioned, she casually asked ‘Do you want to test Babil?’ But I didn’t know (if) he was looking into acting. I knew he was studying films and wanted to be a cinematographer,” she added. “It was the first time he was facing the camera and it could have been frightening. Babil was also coming from a sad place and yet kept his energy intact. He was truly a God’s child.”
The Anvitaa Dutt directorial stars Tripti Dimri, Babil Khan, Swastika Mukherjee, Neer Raao, Avinash Raj Sharma and Ashish Singh in the lead roles. The film is produced by Karnesh Ssharma under the banner of Clean Slate Filmz.
