Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar is excited to team up with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan for the first time for his untitled film, which also stars Farhan Akhtar
Bejoy Nambiar, who is behind critically acclaimed films Shaitan and David, said he is yet to start the production of the movie.”I cannot talk much about my new project right now, but the film will be produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and stars Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar in it. I am quite excited to work with Mr Bachchan. He is one of the biggest stars of our industry,” said Bejoy.
The name of the leading lady of the film has not been disclosed but it has been reported that Bejoy is currently in talks with Kareena Kapoor. “We will make an official announcement on the same, since we are still in talks for it,” he added.
Nambiar’s new romantic comedy Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi hit theatres on Friday. For the film, which he produced, the filmmaker has collaborated with Ekta Kapoor. Being directed by newcomer Aman Sachdeva, the film features former Miss India Simran Kaur and newcomer Siddharth Gupta in leading roles.
“Aman (director) is a good friend of mine. I had the idea about the film with me for a long time. But it couldn’t work out. When I met Aman and shared the idea with him he quickly made the film. Ekta (Kapoor) also got convinced with the storyline,” he said. .
