After Shoojit Sircar’s Pink National Award-winning 2016 film, Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu are set to reunite for Sujoy Ghosh’s next film.
“The film produced by Sunir Kheterpal is tentatively titled Badla. A crime thriller, it is expected to roll in mid- June. Mr Bachchan has liked the script but is yet to sign on the dotted line but Taapsee has already committed to the project. The makers have already started work on the prep,” informs a source close to the development.
Sujoy had earlier directed the 75-year-old veteran in his 2009 fantasy-adventure, Aladin, which also featured Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez, and had produced Ribhu Dasgupta’s 2016 thriller Te3n with Big B, Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Talking about her experience of working with Big B in Pink, Taapsee had earlier said, ”It was an honour to work with him,. After all, it’s just my third Hindi film. But I wasn’t intimated at all. I was excited, yes. I am not crazy about any movie star. Mr. Bachchan is an amazing and brilliant actor; everyone knows that. Yes, there was some pressure of performing well. I knew I have to be my best.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in 102 Not Out with Rishi Kapoor. The film is set to hit the screens on May 4, 2018. The film is based on playwright Saumya Joshi’s well-known Gujarati play by the same name.
Taapsee, on the other hand, is busy shooting for Manmarziyaan with Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal.
