As Big B's tryst with honing his craft with each project continues, on the occasion of his 78th birthday today, we take a look at six projects to look forward to. 'Brahmastra' is a superhero adventure. Amitabh Bachchan will feature in the Ayan Mukerji-directed film with Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. The project is being billed as the first part in a trilogy.
The mystery thriller is directed by Rumi Jafry and also features Emraan Hashmi, Krystle D'Souza and Annu Kapoor.
Directed by ‘Sairat’ maker Nagraj Manjule, ‘Jhund’ is reportedly based on the life of Vijay Barse, who is the founder of Slum Soccer. Big B plays the role of a professor who channelises the energy of street children to build a football team.
Bachchan makes his debut in Tamil with ‘Uyarndha Manithan’, which also stars actor-director SJ Suryah. It is a bilingual film.
Untitled film with Prabhas
Big B will star with Deepika Padukone and Telugu superstar Prabhas in a multilingual mega production for the big screen. The yet-untitled film is slated to release in 2022.
The film is a sequel to the 2002 heist thriller ‘Aankhen’ and will reportedly co-star Jacqueline Fernandez and Saif Ali Khan. It will be directed by Anees Bazmee.
