Thursday, July 19, 2007 Mega star Amitabh Bachchan will be dealing the cards and trying his luck at gambling in a Bollywood film.
Decades after he played the clever gambler in Shakti Samantha's movie The Great Gambler, Amitabh is ready for a similar role again. This time it is female director Leena Yadav who will direct the superstar in a film called Teen Patti. Leena made an utterly forgettable film Shabd with Aishwarya Rai and Sanjay Dutt two years ago.
Leena's next film Teen Patti will require the Big B to acquire dexterity in shuffling and dealing the cards. And the problem is that Bachchan doesn't play cards in real life. In fact, he says he is "terrible" with cards.
But for the movie, he will have to learn the skills with cards. The film will also have Arshad Warsi. The remaining cast is yet to be finalized.
