Have you heard of a dog audition? Well, that is exactly what Sajid-Farhad did for their debut directorial ‘Entertainment’.

According to the requirement of the film, they were on the look out for a dog which could not only relate to human emotions, but also “have a face like humans”. So while on a dog-searching spree, they reached Bangkok and of the 70-80 dogs that they happened to see and audition, they selected the first one they had seen, a golden retriever named Junior.

“But he was like a senior on the sets. He commanded that kind of respect from everyone,” said the director-duo.
