Abhishek Bachchan has been confirmed to star in the remake of his father’s film ‘Do Aur Do Paanch’ (1980).

This will be the first time that Bachchan Junior will play a role, which was originally played by his father Amitabh Bachchan. Bobby Deol is reportedly said to be playing the role of the other lead character originally acted by Shashi Kapoor. Two actresses are yet to be confirmed.

Producer Kunal Kohli has convinced Bachchan Junior to be part of the film. It will be directed by newcomer Akshaye Puri, who is a maternal cousin of designer Manish Malhotra and actor Varun Dhawan.

The filmmaker told Times Of India, “It’s too early to reveal anything, we will make a formal announcement as soon as we are ready with all details.”
