The Madras Café filmmaker offered to help creative the Anurag Kashyap with the production of Big B’s new TV show
We had you looking forward to Amitabh Bachchan play a business tycoon in a fictional show about the politics of the corporate world. We now hear that Kahani director Shoojit Sircar has agreed to assist Anurag Kashyap with the production of this show.
Earlier this year Shoojit Sircar agreed to turn actor in the John Abraham starrer movie 1911 but unlike filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia who is to play a cameo role in the AB starrer TV show, Sircar would lend a helping hand only as a director.
Shoojit Sircar is scheduled to work with Amitabh Bachchan on his next directorial project Piku later this year. Sr Bachchan was delighted to have Sircar onboard and was quoted saying, “Shoojit and I have worked before (in a film) but, unfortunately, that film got stuck somewhere. I have worked with Shoojit in many commercials. We did the Gujarat tourism campaign. I am very comfortable working with him.”
We would have liked to see Shoojit showcase his acting talent which is at par with his directorial capacity but we would have to wait for 1911 for that. For now we will have to hold our horses and stick around for Big B’s television magnum opus to see what’s in store.
