Looks like it is going to be an on-screen reunion of the Bachchan family. Didn’t get what we are talking about? Let me explain. Almost a week after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan confirmed that she is set to reteam with husband Abhishek Bachchan on-screen after a gap of 9 years, for an upcoming Hindi film ‘Gulab Jamun’, it is being heard that filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who is producing the movie, has got another member of the Bachchan family onboard. Well, we are talking about thespian Amitabh Bachchan. According to reports, Senior Bachchan may play a pivotal part in ‘Gulab Jamun’, which will be helmed by Sarvesh Mewara.
Described as a slice-of-life film, ‘Gulab Jamun’ revolves around a family which has three-generations living together, with Amitabh representing the first generation, as per reports. A source close to the development divulges that after approaching Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the makers had also given a narration to Big B. However, the senior actor had then suggested few tweaks in the script before deciding whether or not he would do the film. “After initiating talks with Abhishek and Ash, the makers had given a narration to Big B last year, following which he had suggested a few tweaks to the script.”
Anurag Kashyap wanted to make ‘Gulab Jamun’ almost one and a half year ago. However, the project could not take off back then for various reasons. Talks about reviving the film started after Kashyap wrapped up his upcoming directorial venture ‘Manmarziyan’ (2018) with Abhishek Bachchan. Reportedly, the filmmaker reached out to Big B again with the reworked script.
The trio, who set the silver screen on fire with their iconic song ‘Kajrare’ from the 2005 film ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, was last seen together in ‘Sarkar Raj’ (2008).
