Mim-Oh, aah, oouch! We knew that Ashutosh Gowariker was looking for an actor to play the lead in his big budget international film Buddha. But we had no clue that he would settle so close! Film critic Rajeev Masand tweeted about the casting news today evening. Its not confirmed yet but seems he is surely there.

Yes, we also want to know the same. What has he seen in Mimoh ? From which angle ? Where and how ? Or is it gonna be Har-Man/Hurr-Man/Whatever-Man casting redux and one more Whats Your T-rashee ? And if it is all about a star kid, then why this talent hunt ?

Also, Gautam Buddha must be turning in his grave. If you don’t believe us, click here. Why suddenly after 1000 years ? Or is it just a coincidence! We guess it has to do something with Mim-OoH….aah…ouch! We have already started Buddhist chanting!
