Veteran actor and yesteryear's superstar Mithun Chakraborty had already launched his son Mimoh aka Mahakshay Chakraborty with the horror film Haunted 3D back in 2011. Now, the DID superjudge is all set to introduce his second son Namashi in Bollywood with the upcoming flick BadBoy. The film will be helmed by Rajkumar Santoshi who has worked on many superhit films like Andaz Apna Apna, Damini, Ghayal and many others. The film will also feature producer Sajid Qureshi's daughter Amrin.
"Rajkumar had several rounds of auditions before deciding on them and put both of them through some acting workshops," Qureshi said in a statement.

Mithun was in the US when Namashi was signed for the film, Qureshi said.
"But on his return, he met us and discussed the script. Any father would be pleased to have his child launched by Rajkumar Santoshi. It means he is in safe hands," he said.
The film will be shot in Bengaluru and Mumbai over the next 65 days. The makers have also planned to shoot few songs abroad. The film is being bank-rolled by Qureshi's Inbox Pictures.
