Filmmaker R Balki and Amitabh Bachchan had first worked together in ‘Cheeni Kum’ and then later in ‘Paa’. Now Balki has made his mind to approach the superstar with a subject he would not be able to refuse.
“It is a very interesting subject, though the details are still being kept under wraps. Amitabh too has been picking a lot of offbeat films since Paa including Piku, and he is very fond of Balki and his work. Balki has collaborated with Bachchan much earlier in commercials, when he was chairman of Lowe Lintas, and the two share an amazing bond which will now translate into another film soon,” says an industry source.
Amitabh Bachchan has also appeared in Balki’s wife Gauri Shinde’s Sridevi starrer English Vinglish, the actor also appeared alongside Jaya Bachchan in Ki and Ka.
