Ashutosh Gowarikar Who Cast Gayatri Joshi As Shah Rukh Khan's Co-star In Swades Days, 'I Have Always Gone  For Unusual  Casting' - EXCLUSIVE
Who but Ashutosh Gowariker  would have thought of casting Rajiv Kapoor, who hadn’t faced the camera  in  30 years, in  Toolsidas Junior? But Gowariker has constantly thought out of the  box for his casting.  “I  got Zeenat Amanji to play a cameo as Sakina Beghum in my last directorial Panipat.I offered the yesteryears’ actress Kumkum the  role that  Ila Arun finally played in Jodhaa Akbar.”

Gowariker lives in Mumbai in a bungalow  called Kumkum Villa , owned  by the actress amd kept close ties  with her till her death  in  July 2020.

“I’d dutifully offer her  a role in every film  directed by me right until her death. But she had vowed  never  to return to acting after  marriage.And she stuck to her  promise,” says Ashutosh who also cast Gayatri Joshi  opposite  Shah Rukh Khan in Swades. Gayatri  was  never seen in any  film after this.


“All  through my career   as a filmmaker  I’ve striven  to think out  of the box while adhering to the  commercial language  of filmmaking,” says  Ashutosh.
