Amitabh Bachchan, has signed films belonging to different genres and he is ready to experiment with his roles even at his age. Big B is still comfy taking on both the lead as well as supporting roles, and deliver consistently great performances in the process. Amitabh Bachchan will be seen next in Badla, a thriller that is directed by Sujoy Ghosh. Taapsee Pannu is the other lead in the film that is an official remake of the 2017 Spanish film The Invisible Guest. Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment is producing the film.
As we await how Sr Bachchan is going to thrill us in Badla, he gave us some hint, temporary at that, of what could be the nest movie he signed. On February 27, Amitabh Bachchan posted a mysterious tweet on his timeline that is baffling to say the least. The tweet had the caption, “Ek anokhi kahaani. Ek anokha aarambh. Stay tuned #Prayagraj”. The tweet was accompanied by a gif of the map of Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh, formerly known as Allahabad.
So what is this about? Is Amitabh Bachchan making a major movie announcement? Or is it a campaign to promote the city of Prayagraj? The UP tourism board had earlier roped the National award winning legend to promote this year’s Kumbh Mela.
Interestingly, just as how mysterious his tweet was, Amitabh Bachchan also took it down within a few minutes of posting with no reason given. Perhaps he realised that there is no point of tweeting about a new project, when most of the country’s attention is invested in the tensed situation at the Indo-Pak border. Not to say, a bit insensitive too.
