Emraan Hashmi and Amitabh Bachchan have never worked together before and the duo will reportedly work together in Rumi Jafry’s next.
A trade source informs an Indian media outlet:
“Neither Mahesh or, Mukesh nor Pooja Bhatt has worked with Big B before.
But what is more interesting is the casting of Emraan with Bachchan. The trade is very curious about it.”
Rumi Jafry, who has written over 16 films for David Dhawan, has directed Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Amitabh Bachchan in the film God Tussi Great Ho.
Incidentally, in 2008, that film was banned across theatres in the UAE after a lot of complaints were received from movie patrons in the Gulf about the film having ‘violated Islamic teachings’.
Now, Rumi is helming another film as a director with Mr Bachchan as one of the lead characters, details of which are expected to be announced soon.
Rumi’s last film as a director was in the year 2012 which he made starring Akshaye Khanna, but that film fell and Rumi took a break.
It is believed that Saurabh Shukla and Annu Kapoor are also a part of the supporting cast.
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan’s forthcoming movie is Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla which releases in cinemas tomorrow.
