New Delhi, Jan 5 (IANS) Come Wednesday and it would be time to hit the virtual world to turn your Bollywood dreams into a reality. Acting portal Bombaycasting.com is organising an online audition through which Bollywood directors Aanand L.Rai, Hansal Mehta and Tigmanshu Dhulia will sift through talent to spot three stars in the making.
All one needs to do is to send audition tapes to the portal from Wednesday to January 21, and noted film personalities will offer tips.
As many as three aspirants will be discovered from the talent hunt, and the winner will get Rs.11 lakh and an acting contract with a leading filmmaker. The first and second runner-up will get cash prize of Rs.5 lakh and Rs.2 lakh respectively.
All the winners will get 100 days of work on various projects, such as movies, documentaries and advertisements.
Sunil Bohra, the online portal’s founder, said: “The endeavour is to spot talented actors across the country and world and provide them a platform to showcase their talent without letting them get exploited.”
The site also allows actors from outside Mumbai to register themselves, in case a film unit shooting in the area wants to hire them.
