Rekha to imitate Amitabh Bachchan in Super Nani

Super Nani being Rekha‘s comeback film is all set to release this Diwali. However, the actress has a lot in mind when it comes to this film. Not only will she portray the role of a grandmother like her stint in Krrish but we will see a drastic transformation of this conventional nani moving beyond the confines of quintessential Indian grandmothers.

And Amitabh Bachchan too is a part of the plot. Not quite literally though! Apparently the plot of Super Nani will see Sharman Joshi, who plays Rekha’s grandson, transforming the image of his otherwise traditional nani into a modern grandmother in order to give a new meaning to her life. Inspiring her to do something big in her life, Sharman encourages her to break away from unnecessary norms and his Super Nani soon turns into a commercial model.

Hence, when she gets an offer from her friend played by Anupam Kher for starring in an ad commercial, she is asked to ape the mannerisms of legendary superstar Amitabh Bachchan which the actress obliges to do. Talking about it, director Indra Kumar even stated that this commercial which apparently is shot for a prestigious brand in the film is very hilarious.

Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha haven’t been seen sharing screen space since the 80s post the Yash Chopra directorial Silsila. Though there were speculations about them acting together in the Anees Bazmee directorial Welcome Back, the deal did not get through.

Super Nani which was initially slated to release in May was later postponed to October 24 and will now be clashing with superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer Happy New Year. Starring Shweta Kumar, Super Nani is produced by Indra Kumar along with Ashok Thakeria. The trailer of the film is slated to release along with Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan starrer Khoobsurat, which incidentally is a remake of a Rekha classic.
