The Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, is all set to team up for the first time with Emraan Hashmi for an untitled mystery thriller, which will be directed by Life Partner helmer Rumi Jaffery. The film will be bankrolled by Anand Pandit and is scheduled to hit the screens on February 21. The untitled project will go on floors in May this year and latest reports suggest that Big B will play the character of a judge.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, producer Anand Pandit talked about the project and said, "My friendship with Mr Bachchan goes back a long way. I have not met any other actor, who matches his skill and commitment. It is an honour to be a part of creating a film with him. I have always admired Emraan’s body of work, so am looking forward to seeing him on screen with the legend for the first time. Given the subject of the film, I do believe we have a winner in our hands."
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in Nagraj Manjule's Jhund. The actor is essaying the role of Vijay Barse, a Nagpur-based retired sports teacher who starts a slum soccer movement. The film is co-produced by Krishan Kumar, Raaj Hiremath, Savita Raj Hiremath, Manjule alongside Tandav Films Entertainment and Aatpaat Production.
