It looks like 2016 is going to be another super-busy year for the Big B, Amitabh Bachchan. And a Bangla-dominated year at that. Even as he gears up for the release of Bejoy Nambiar's Wazir, his first release for 2016 news comes from Kolkata where the Big B is currently shooting with Vidya Balan for Sujoy Ghosh's film.
We now have information straight from Kolkata that the Big B has also said yes to Bangla director Aniruddha Roy Choudhuri's new film. Aniruddha has made the award-winning Bangla films Anuranan and Antaheen.
He now steps into Hindi cinema with a film that Shoojit Sircar will produce. Confirming these developments Shoojit who directed the Big B in the hugely lauded Piku earlier this year says, "Yes, I am producing film that will star Bachchan Saab. Aniruddha Roy Choudhuri will direct. It will be in Hindi."
Shoojit shoots down rumours of approaching Ranbir Kapoor for his next. "I don't even have an idea of what I'll direct next .In the meanwhile I'll be helping out Anniruddh with creative inputs."
What about rumours of a sequel to Piku? Does Shoojit intend to carry forward his love for Kolkata through a sequel? "I am not ruling out the possibility," says Shoojit mysteriously.
