In a recent update, Sooraj Barjatya is set to bring his next film starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead. According to the reports, the megastar is excited about the project and looking forward to shooting the film.
A source was quoted as saying, “This is the first time that Amitabh Bachchan is teaming up with Sooraj Barjatya. When Sooraj ji came to narrate Mr Bachchan the script, the latter was in for a surprise. Sooraj ji has a very entertaining and dramatic style of narrating the film. He even hums the song and background score to give the actor a complete feel of the film. Mr Amitabh Bachchan naturally was floored by this technique. Also, he loved the script and was bowled over by its rootedness and simplicity. He hasn’t done such a role and worked in such a family entertainer in more than a decade. Hence, he immediately came on board.”
Sr. Bachchan adjusted time from his busy schedule for Sooraj Barjatya’s next in his schedule.
The source continues, “The actor is currently filming for MayDay. Once he finishes work on Ajay Devgn’s thriller, he’ll move on to Sooraj Barjatya’s next, in February. It is expected to be a 60-day schedule. Only after completing this film will he move on to Vikas Bahl’s film, reportedly titled Deadly.”
According to the information, the film will also Boman Irani. The rest of the casting process is yet not revealed.
Including this, Amitabh Bachchan now has 6 films in the pipeline waiting to be released.
