Mumbai, May 13 (IANS) Sikander Kher's introductory scene in his debut 'Woodstock Villa' was inspired from Tom Cruise starrer 'Days of Thunder' and shot at a whopping budget of Rs.15 million.
'A special bike Yamaha MP01 costing above Rs.2 million was imported for the scene. The hero rides on it like Ajay Devgan in 'Phool Aur Kaante'. One has to see it. It can't be described,' said director Hansal Mehta.
'It was a collective decision. The producer and myself, we both wanted an ideal launch for the actor. He has that potential,' he added.
Sikander, the son of Anupam and Kirron Kher, is paired with Neha Oberoi in this thriller.
Commenting upon the lead pair, Mehta said: 'We thought of new actors because the script demanded a fresh face. Both the newcomers did a tremendous job. While Sikander came through audition, Neha was selected as she is related to the producer.'
