Director Zubair Khan gets real ‘Tipper’ for his underworld flick Lakeer Ka Fakeer
Debutant director Zubair Khan decided to cast the real time informers who are known as ‘Tipper’ in the infamous Bombaiya (mumbai) Language in his film Lakeer Ka Fakeer as he was keen to give the film an ultra-realistic look. There are no professional character artists as well as junior artists as ‘Tipper’ in the film.
Says Zubair, “The movie is based on a real story, and I wanted to maintain that realistic approach. the portrayal of an informer by a real time informer was the best way to keep that approach intact.” The protagonist of the Film Lakeer Ka Fakeer is also a ‘Tipper’ who is the victim of the system played by actor Ajaz Khan who is already seen in Rakht Charitra, Allah Key Bandey, Rakht Charitra 2 in negative role and many TV soaps.
Initially Ajaz was not feeling comfortable in the set among these real time characters, but slowly he adjusted himself in the skin of character as well as got comfortable personally with these people.The movie is slated to release on 14th of June this year.
