When will the Bachchans be seen together in a film?
Bol Bachchan actor Abhishek Bachchan clarifies that the Bachchans are not a package deal
Ever since Abhishek Bachchan married Aishwarya Rai, there has been speculation that the entire Bachchan family, including Amitabh and Jaya, would come together in a film. There have been reports that various filmmakers have tried to pull off this casting coup, but so far nobody has been lucky enough to manage it. Ram Gopal Varma is the only director to cast Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya in Sarkar 2.
Just as we were wondering if the Bachchans would ever come together onscreen, Jr B clarified in a recent interview, “We Bachchans are not a package deal. All decisions on a movie involve four individual creative people (Amitabh, Jaya, Aishwarya and Abhishek). So unless and until all of us like the parts written out for us, there will not be a film like that.”We just hope some talented filmmaker comes up with a story idea that is good enough to justify the presence of the whole Bachchan family. Maybe the Barjatyas can come up with a good ‘family’ entertainer for the clan?
