Nagraj Manjule To Direct Amitabh Bachchan, In His Bollywood Debut Film

Amitabh Bachchan is the only actor who has been approached for quite a lot of Bollywood projects. With all the number of films he has to his kitty he now adds another to that list. This time it is Sairat famed Nagraj Manjule, whose 2016 love story became such a rage that it raked in the title as the Marathi Blockbuster!

A source said, “Nagraj worked on it for a year and a half before taking the script to Bachchan in January. The project was locked soon after.” The film is expected to go on floors later this year.

This film will be a social drama where Big B would be  portraying the role of a patriarch with shades of grey. Another interesting fact is Nagraj and Amitabh both are fans of each other. Right after the success of Sairat hit the skies, Big B sent a hand written letter for the filmmaker.

Well, it’s really an exciting project and really we are looking forward to this yet to be titled film to hit the right strings.
