Not many are aware that Parmeet Sethi,the actor turned director of ‘Badmaash Company’,wrote its entire script with dialogues in six days flat. Yes,you read it right: Six days only. And the four characters in the film – Karan,Bulbul,Chandu and Zing – are known to Parmeet; they’re based on real-life characters.

Anushka Sharma,who has a lot of hopes pinning on ‘Badmaash Company’,feels that the film would connect big time with the youth of today,who resort to an easy route to attain name,fame and riches overnight. “That’s what attracted me to the film. Honestly,I wasn’t even aware that Parmeet had written the script and was supposed to direct it,since Adi [Aditya Chopra just asked me to go through it. It was much later,when I read the script and expressed my eagerness to be a part of the film,that Adi revealed the director’s identity,” Anushka tells me.

Parmeet reveals that he got tired of television and was keen on pursuing film direction. “There’s a little of me in each of those four characters,” Parmeet says,who approached Yash Raj with his script the moment he was ready. The fact that Adi liked it and signed a 3-film deal with Parmeet,says it all.

Parmeet feels that ‘Badmaash Company’ offers loads of entertainment,but narrated in a new format. “Even the choice of actors proves that I didn’t want to take the predictable path,” he says. What about Shahid? He’s known to act ‘difficult’ with his directors. “That’s not true at all. Not once did he interfere or throw starry tantrums. In fact,he pushed his father’s film ‘Mausam’ ahead to accommodate ‘Badmaash Company’. That says it all,” Parmeet refutes the rumour.
