Omung Kumar Says Aishwarya Is An Amazing Actress

Mary Kom director Omung Kumar is going gaga over Aishwarya Rai Bachchan these days. He says, Aishwarya is a director’s actor. Omung who has earlier worked with dusky beauty Priyanka Chopra in Mary Kom says half of the battle is won if the casting is good.

The director said, “First, I signed Aishwarya. I wanted a mature actress for this role who could play a 22-year-old and a 45-year-old as well. She was planning to make her comeback and I knew her for a long time. She is a director’s actor.”

Also he thinks, biopic movies are very sensitive issues portrayed on screen and only a well known actor can connect to a large number of audience.

Kumar said, “It is important to have a star in a biopic if you want that reach. I could have made this with a newcomer also, but it would have been a smaller film. Big actors obviously help a film.”

When Omung was asked whether it was a right decision to direct one more biopic after Mary Kom, he said, “I don’t make biopics with any such intentions, and it was not a conscious effort at all. Last year, when I got this script, I really liked it. Whatever I make a film on; my only motive is that it should be an actor’s best role. That’s the highlight of my film.”
