Sooraj Barjatya’s upcoming film with Amitabh Bachchan is expected to go on the floors in February
Bollywood Hungama reports that the much talked about family drama will be Barjatya’s next film despite rumours working with Salman Khan. However, it is reported that Khan and Barjatya will work together in 2022.
A source told the publication, “This is the first time that Amitabh Bachchan is teaming up with Sooraj Barjatya. When Sooraj ji came to narrate Mr Bachchan the script, the latter was in for a surprise. Sooraj ji has a very entertaining and dramatic style of narrating the film. He even hums the song and background score to give the actor a complete feel of the film. Mr Amitabh Bachchan naturally was floored by this technique. Also, he loved the script and was bowled over by its rootedness and simplicity. He hasn’t done such a role and worked in such a family entertainer in more than a decade. Hence, he immediately came on board.”
The source added, “The actor is currently filming for MayDay. Once he finishes work on Ajay Devgn’s thriller, he’ll move on to Sooraj Barjatya’s next, in February. It is expected to be a 60-day schedule. Only after completing this film will he move on to Vikas Bahl’s film, reportedly titled Deadly.”
