BOLLYWOOD: Here’s a casting coup of sorts that has got everyone surprised-veteran Indian actress Dimple Kapadia in a Christopher Nolan film. While the National Award-winning actress, who has been a part of showbiz since 1973, was initially hesitant to take on the role, she left the casting team mighty impressed.
Mumbai-based talent manager Purvi Lavingia Vats, who was the conduit between Dimple and Nolan’s casting team, told IANS: “I pitched Dimple for the part and things fell into place. While the prospect of working with Christopher Nolan sounded very exciting, she was a bit hesitant in the beginning as there was not much information on the role. I still sent footage of her work to the casting office and they really liked what they saw. After a more detailed brief was sent to us, she then decided to audition.
“The casting director was then flown from Los Angeles to Mumbai and he and Nolan met with her. The rest was history.”
There isn’t anything that Vats can reveal of the brief she had got, but she says, “based on feedback of what they were looking for, I just knew Dimple was the perfect fit”.
