In the past, Anurag Kashyap and Amitabh Bachchan had teamed up for two times. And now, the duo are set to comeback together again for the third time and this time round, we’ll see the two sharing the screen space for the firsttime ever. Both the filmmaker and the veteran actor are part of the cast of ‘Bhootnath Returns’ and started shooting together on Wednesday.
According to a daily, Anurag Kashyap will be seen as a film director in the sequel which has Bachchan reprising the role of a benevolent ghost haunting a dilapidated bungalow.
When contacted, Kashyap confirmed the news saying, “Yes I am shooting with Bachchan saab. I cannot reveal any other details.” The film’s producer Bhushan Kumar said, “We decided two days ago to rope in a real director to play one in the film. The sequence is integral to the story, so we approached Anurag Kashyap and he immediately gave us the dates.”
Kashyap had earlier directed Bachchan in ‘Murabba’ one of the four stories in the film ‘Bombay Talkies’ and he is currently directing Bachchan on a fiction TV show that will be going on air soon.
