Rohan Mehra, who will make his acting debut with the Saif Ali Khan-starrer Baazaar, says he was not offered the film because he is the son of late actor Vinod Mehra. Talking about how Rohan bagged a role in Baazaar, he said in a statement: “I heard about the film. In fact, I read about the film and was very intrigued by the storyline.
“When I learnt that Nikkhil Sir (producer Nikkhil Advani) was making this film, I thought of auditioning for it. Initially, the film was supposed to have only established actors and they were not planning on taking newcomers. Eventually, they got convinced.”
After a few rounds of audition, he had to wait for months before getting the confirmation call. “It was not something which was offered because I was a star kid, but I had to really work hard for it,” he said.
Baazaar, a film on stocks, money and crime, also stars Chitrangda Singh and Radhika Apte.
