Amitabh Bachchan was busy in the shooting of the film ‘Brahmastra,’ which features Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Both the actors, Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan, have made heavy usage of prosthetics and costumes in the movie.
Director Ghosh, while talking to media, said “When you get an actor like Amitabh Bachchan, half your battle is won as he’s every director’s delight and I’m extremely excited to direct him. Also, I have been trying to work with Taapsee for a while. This is the perfect story to collaborate with her on. My excitement is doubled now that the film is being produced by SRK. I couldn’t have asked for a better team and now it is time for work.”
Sujay added, “I thought it was superlative material for Bachchan Sir and pitched it to him. Taapsee was already on board, SRK also loved the source material and the collaboration happened seamlessly.”
It has been a decade since Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan have collaborated for any project. They were last seen together in Bhootnath in 2010.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently busy in the shoots of his upcoming film ‘Zero’ in which he is playing a dwarf. The film also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. The film is expected to release by the end of 2018.
