The director of Mumbai Meri Jaan and Rocky Handsome, Nishikant Kamat has roped in Abhishek Bachchan to star in his upcoming thriller and it is reported that Junior Bachchan has given his nod and is excited to start shooting for the film. A source close to the development was quoted as saying, "Abhishek has loved the idea and he is charged up for this film as he has never tried his hands at thriller films. There is no specific prep work required for the film."
The source further spilled the beans saying that the film will go on floors in May 2017 and is scheduled to hit the theatres during winter the same year, "The shoot for the film will begin from May this year and hopefully the film will release during winter. The film will mostly be shot in two schedules."
This is for the first time Abhishek Bachchan will be seen in a thriller movie and we're sure he'll do justice to his role. Abhishek was last seen in the film Housefull 3 and it ended up crossing the 100 Crores mark at the box office. The film also starred Akshay Kumar, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Lisa Haydon, Nargis Fakhri and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles.
AB's previous movie as a main lead 'All Is Well' bombed at the box office and could not even collect its invested amount. The film also starred Rishi Kapoor, Asin and Supriya Pathak in the lead roles and released in 2015.
