Years ago, Big B and Madhuri Dixit featured in a song together in Bade Miya Chote Miyan. Later, Indra Kumar cast the two actors in Bachchan's home-production Rishta, which was shelved subsequently. Not too long back, LEELA director Somnath Sen cast Big B and Madhuri in his new venture, which, again, couldn't take off since the actress was pregnant with her second child.
Now, there's a possibility that the two actors will feature in a film together...
Ravi Chopra is toying with the idea of casting Madhuri opposite Bachchan in his new film, titled Pathjhad. "I think, they'll look good together. I am in the process of speaking to Madhuri. It's either Madhuri or Hema-ji," Chopra tells me. What's Pathjhad all about? "The man's a divorcee and the woman a widow. It's their love story," he enlightens.
Meanwhile, Chopra is also planning to start a comedy, titled Pappu Paas Ho Gaya. "It's not the slapstick kind of humor. It's about a mechanic who becomes a lawyer," he smiles.
