The casting of Nikhil Advani's remake of Subhash Ghai's 1983 blockbuster "Hero" just got far more interesting and engaging. Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia has been cast as debutant Aathiya Shetty's father, a role played by the late Shammi Kapoor in the original.

Dhulia was selected for the part since Advani wanted an actor who could capture the original's ebullience and zest for life.

"Bullett Raja" is a homage to the cinema of the 1970s, and the camaraderie between Saif Ali Khan and Jimmy Shergill is akin to that of the characters played by Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra in 1975 film "Sholay", says filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia.

"Saif may look like he's shooting bullets fashionably and flamboyantly, but he is a fierce ideologue in 'Bullett Raja'. My film brings back the idealistic hero that Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan played in the 1970s," Dhulia said.

The director is eagerly waiting for the release of his next film, "Bullet Raja", which stars Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha. The film will release Nov 29.
