A story this morning informs Amitabh Bachchan and director Ram
Gopal Varma that they're collaborating on a film called –hold your
Before we all begin to hiss hysterically, here's the catch.
Neither of the two parties supposedly involved in the project have
ever heard of any film called Cobra. Nor are they planning to work
on any film by that title.
Ramu who has taken the debacle of Aag on his chin is
amused. "I don"t have any film called Cobra with Mr Bachchan and
Abhishek in mind. I hate snakes, except when Sridevi plays one in
Nagin. Both the Bachchans have completed their work fully on
Sarkar 2. I haven't even registered the title
Cobra, so I don't see where the confusion comes from."
The Bachchan"s next collaborative effort will be Time Machine.
"Some time next year. That requires a lot of planning. After
Aag, I need to watch my steps," Ramu jokes.
Mr. Bachchan also denies any knowledge of any project called
Cobra. "I guess the papers sometimes know things about my
projects that neither me nor my director are aware of."
