read it right. The Vande Mataram team has approached
Amitabh Bachchan himself to star in their film. The bilingual
movie, titled Vande Mataram in Malayalam and
Aruvadai in Tamil, stars Mammootty, Arjun and Sneha in the
lead roles and is directed by Aravindhan.
The film is about the plight of farmers in our society.
Mammootty appears as an intelligence officer in this film and Arjun
plays a DIG. Sneha appears in the role of a pilot. The film has an
ideal Prime Minister's character, the kind of daring leader people
dream of -- foresighted, selfless, brilliant and talented. This is
the character for which the unit has approached Amitabh Bachchan.
The film"s producer Henry has met Amitabh and given him the script
in English. Big B has reportedly told the producer that he"ll
inform his decision after going through the script. Henry is
confident that Amitabh will accept the role once he reads the
acted in a Kannada film a couple of years back. It was even
reported that the Bollywood superstar would act with Rajinikanth in
Sivaji. However, that rumour turned out to false.
