Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is all set to act in Sajid Khan’s upcoming venture which is going to be an out and out comedy film with which Sajid Khan will be getting back to the genre where he tasted huge success in the past through Housefull series.
The movie will also star Ritesh Deshmukh and Saif Ali Khan and will start its shooting once Amitabh Bachchan completes his shooting for Prakash Jha’s ‘Satyagraha’. Sources said that Sajid Khan had to make a lot of effort to convince Amitabh Bachchan, for which he also went to Bhopal while Big B was shooting for ‘Satyagraha’ and narrated him the script.
Sajid Khan who started his career as a television director then came into Bollywood with movies like Housefull and Housefull-2 which were very successful but then he had to face disaster in the form of ‘Himmatwala’ which bombed at box-office terribly. Sajid Khan came out of ‘Himmatwala’ demise pretty quickly and is all set to direct his 3rd venture.
On the flipside, Amitabh Bachcan did not act in an out and out comedy film since “Bade miyan Chota miyan “ and after 15 long years we will be seeing Amitabh Bachchan in a comic role again. Hope this movie will banish all the sorrow and dejection that ‘Himmatwala’ gave to Sajid Khan.
