What is Amitabh Bachchan doing in Abbas-Mustan’s next film?

The director duo seems to be on cloud nine as the superstar seems to have some good news for them. Read on to know what…

Abbas-Mustan have been in the film industry for over two decades and are best known for their thrillers like Baazigar, Humraaz, Race, etc. The duo always regretted of not having worked with the biggest superstar of the film industry – Amitabh Bachchan. But their wish seems to have been heard by the fairy goddess as Senior Bachchan has given the green signal to work in their upcoming film.

Our khabroos inform us that the film will once again be a racy thriller and will have an ensemble cast. Rumours are afloat that the Race franchise might see the light of the day again and in the form of the third instalment. Maybe Big B is being roped in to play an important character in the film. Another source also speculates that the film would not be a part of the Race series and would be rather a dark murder mystery and have Bachchan play the main lead.

Talking to a leading daily, a source informs, “Mr. Bachchan had several script narrations with Abbas-Mustan. He has really liked the premise and is figuring out his schedule to accommodate this film.” Abbas also confirmed the news to leading daily by saying, “It’s true, we met Mr. Bachchan and he found the script fantastic. Along with him, there will be four more actors – two male and two female leads. We’ll be casting them soon.” Talking about the character Bachchan would be playing, Abbas informed the leading daily, “It’s a positive character, and he plays a man with several children. Then a murder draws him into an intriguing mystery.”

We can only hope to see Big B in such a different avatar. Keep watching this space for more news on this.
