A critically acclaimed director has zeroed in on the actor he wants to be the lead in his next film. The actor, who is known for his nuanced performances, is impressed with the script and is keen to be part of it. But then he has an interesting condition. He wants his ‘close’ friend be part of the film too. The ‘friend’ in question is a decent actress but has not been able to make her mark as yet. So he seems to have taken upon himself to help her. We don’t know if he will do the film only if she comes on board, but we do hope that he doesn’t make it an ultimatum for the director. It is good to be helpful and supportive of the people you are close to, but then at what cost?
