Encore with Amitabh Bachchan
That’s what director Sujoy Ghosh wants. Having directed the iconic Amitabh Bachchan in his upcoming Aladin , the director wants to work with the superstar in two more films.
Director Sujoy Ghosh of Jhankar Beats fame is almost ready with his fantasy film ‘Aladin’ and is planning to revive his old project titled ‘Borivli’, which is a futuristic film, with Amitabh. In fact, Sujoy had first approached the actor for this film only, but because of financial crisis couldn’t continue with the project.
Now he is gearing to re-start this dark film which would be made on a huge budget and needs to be shot in specially designed trains, as its subject deals with future. For his other project, Sujoy is eagerly waiting for a script from a Bengali writer.
He is visiting Kolkata quite often in search of a final script for the movie and is in talks with many contemporary Bengali playwrights. He doesn’t want to adapt the Bengali literature written during 60s to ’80s because these stories, he believes, do not touch the sensibilities of modern period. He is hopeful of getting get a good script soon.
Sujoy made small budget feel-good movie ‘Jhankaar Beats’ in 2003 and followed it up with a forgettable Home Delivery . He is back after a hiatus with ‘Aladdin’, which is going to hit the theatres in a few month time, and stars his good friend Ritesh Deshmukh as Aladin, the owner of a magical lamp and Amitabh as the witty and clever genie.
