Megastar Amitabh Bachchan may not have been in the best of health of late but his tenacity and thirst for challenging roles continues almost like an obsession. Nowadays, Bachchan is busy shooting for Leena Bajaj's Teen Patti. Fans of the megastar will be happy to know that the now choosy actor has (reportedly) signed a new film titled Actor. The film is a thriller and is being directed by Kushan Nandy.
Kushan is a relatively new name in Bollywood and his previous two films, Hum Dum (with newcomers) and 88 Antop Hill (Atul Kulkarni) have been big debacles. So, why did Big B chose to work with Kushan? Well, the subject and the character excited Amitabh and these two were the main motivating factor behind him signing the film. The project is all set to go on the floors this January.
While on the film, the female lead too is very strong and powerful and so the makers are considering names like Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Vidya Balan etc. Well, all in all this will be one film to watch out for.
