Mukesh Chhabra Carrer

Chhabra came to Mumbai in 1997 and worked as an Assistant Casting Director before setting up his own casting company. His first film as independent casting director was the small budget film Chintuji..

Subsequently, Chhabra did the casting for films of different genres like Kai Po Che, ShahidChennai ExpressJai HoHasee To PhaseeMastram and D-day. Apart from films, he’s also done casting for TVCs. In his career, Chhabra has employed several unconventional casting methods. For example, he spotted the budding actor Irfan Khan, who played the character ‘Fatka’ in the film Chillar Party, on the streets of Mumbai. Chhabra’s democratic style of auditioning has previously invited nuisance value from potential actors.

Actor Rajkumar Rao was chosen to play one of the leads for the film Kai Po Che only on Chhabra’s insistence. Rao’s talent in the film won him critical acclaim and later Chhabra cast him in Shahid as the leading man.
