There’s been some speculation recently about Sooraj Barjatya’s next project and it’s now been confirmed by Boman Irani that the filmmaker will be working with Amitabh Bachchan next and that he’s going to be a part of the film, reportedly called ‘Oonchai’.
Irani shared, according to Pinkvilla, that he’s been interacting with Barjatya online, “The interactions have been virtual. I was about to go and meet him on one of these days, but once again things got shut.” The actor then opened up about his excitement on this collaboration. “We come from the same school and he is actually one of the most polite and respectful human being. He has incredible value and respect for his actors. It will be great fun”.
He also said that the film has been discussed on the sets of ‘Mayday’. “I met Mr. Bachchan on the sets of MayDay and he asked me to come on board the film. Then one day, Mr. Kher called me to ask why are you taking so long, just come on board. And that’s all it takes when you have Mr. Bachchan and Mr. Kher say this. It’s a love space to be in,” stated Irani.
An official announcement on the film is expected soon.
