Amitabh Bachchan who has played a role of a 12-year-old boy in R Balki’s Paa is now all set to play a 30 year old man in a remake of his own action entertainer Aakhri Raasta which was released in 1986. The film which is about a father-son conflict directed by K Bhagyaraj saw Amitabh in a double role.
The director of the movie, Anthony D’Souza of Boss fame says that they had to reverse the Big B’s role prepration from that of the original movie’s. Says a source close to the project, “In the original Bachchan played the son as his normal self, looking the way he did in 1986. And he played the father with lots of elaborate make-up. In the new Aakhri Raasta, he will play the father looking the way he does now. For the son’s role there will be plenty of prosthetics and make-up.”
Anthony has met and pitched the idea to the Big B.
