That Sikander Aggarwal, who is palying the title role in Sudhir Mishra’s Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, is a street kid from Jharkhand, is known. But how he landed himself the role, makes for a cute story.

Sudhir’s is Sikander’s second film. Prior to this, the teenager acted in a Bengali film, Shadows Of Time, with a German director.

Sudhir narrates an interesting story of how a street kid ended up as the lead in his film. “I saw him in Shadows Of Time. I was quiet bowled over by his performance in the film.

When I was casting for Johnny I thought of him. Coincidently my casting director also felt that he is apt for the role and then we started looking for him. We called all our friends in Kolkata and on trying very hard, we found him.”

Sudhir has taken Sikander under his wing and is trying to help him in his career. Sikander is currently living at Sudhir’s office and helps in his production work. Sudhir adds, “My group is very fond of him. He is now a member of our family. He has come a long way from a class eight boy who left his native place to become a labourer and is now quiet an expert. You will find him on social networking site.”
