Big B – Arjun – Perizaad teamed

A lot has been written about producers Bunty Walia and Jassi Walia’s next project, to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia [MUMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST]. But none had the official version on the film. Here it is: Starring Amitabh Bachchan in the central role, the film [working title is EK AJNABEE] will co-star Arjun Rampal, Perizaad Zorabian and Baby Rucha [MAIN AISA HI HOON] in key roles. The film will be shot in a 35-day schedule, from May 22, in Bangkok. The penultimate 7-day schedule will take place in July in Mumbai. Initially, John Abraham had been approached for the lead role, but John’s dates posed a big problem. Since we required bulk dates and John was shooting back to back, we had to opt for someone else, Apoorva confirms. Also, Dia Mirza was the original choice for the role that is being essayed by Perizaad now. Dia couldn’t do the film because she is committed to participate in I.I.F.A. It was Dia’s decision to opt out, Apoorva clarifies. But there’s talk that the director had been ‘good friends’ with Dia [the media has been speculating it!] and had decided not to mix business with pleasure. It’s completely untrue. Just because Abhishek, Lara, Dia and I hang out together, it doesn’t mean I am seeing Dia, he denies the affair outright, but continues in the same breath, Believe me, it’s my loss but Dia and I’ve decided to work together in my next project. Meanwhile, music composer Amar Mohile has already recorded two out of five songs for the film.
