After winning accolades in Paa, Amitabh Bachchan will now be seen
in two diverse films [Rann, Teen Patti], enacting equally diverse
roles. While Bachchan enacts the role of a media moghul whose word

part in Teen Patti, but there are murmurs that Hollywood
heavyweights such as Pierce Brosnan and Richard Gere also appear in
cameos. "That's completely true. There's no reason why we would

Another news doing the rounds is that the film has gone
over-budget, from Rs. 12 cr. to Rs. 20 cr. "Not true again. I'd
