Bombay Talkies is an upcoming joint venture comprising four short films directed by four prominent Bollywood directors - Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibarkar Banerjee. "We are trying to do something with him for the film. But officially, he is not part of the film. By mid of April we would be in a better position to give out details regarding the same," producer Ashi Dua told PTI.
Reportedly, the 48-year-old actor will shoot for a special segment in the film. Johar's film stars Rani Mukherjee, Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem, brother of actress Huma Qureshi. Dibakar's film will have Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sadashiv Amrapukar. While Zoya's film has Ranvir Shorey and Katrina Kaif, and Anurag Kashyap's film will have megastar Amitabh Bachchan. It was earlier rumoured that Ranbir Kapoor would play 'Sutradhaar' in the film but Ashi denied all such talks. Bombay Talkies releases on May 3.
