Bachchan in Sujoy Ghosh’s Kerala
We at Box Office India were the first to tell you how Amitabh Bachchan had asked Sujoy Ghosh to direct a film which would have him and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead. Now, not many directors are graced by a request like that and the overwhelmed director soon started working on the screenplay. Now we hear that his writers are giving it the finishing touches while he is making a trip to Kerala. The film, a thriller, is set in Kerala and is also titled Kerala.
A source close to the director reveals, “Soon, there will be reading sessions between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amitabh Bachchan, and after that, there will be workshops too. The shoot will mostly commence a few months from now.”
