Big B starts preparing for Shoojit Sircar’s next

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has started preparing for his next project, which is in collaboration with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar.

Calling the movie dramatic, Amitabh on Thursday tweeted: “Preparing for the next one… dramatic! for Shoojit Sircar.”

Alongside the post, the actor shared an image in which he seen wearing a pair of glasses and is all suited up.

While he is looking forward to filming his next, Amitabh took out some time to inform his fans about his film “Bombay to Goa”, which completed 44 years on Thursday.

Sharing images of old school treatment posters of the adventure-comedy film, directed by S. Ramanathan, Amitabh remembered those days and shared that “Bombay to Goa” was somewhat a remake of a Tamil film.

“The remake of Tamil film ‘Madras to Pondicherry’ starring that great comedian Nagesh from Tamil cinema… Nagesh an iconic name and legendary presence in the South. His fame at times bigger than the hero stars of the day,” he posted on his official blog.

“Mehmood bhai chose to remake it. He being equally if not more in presence in Hindi cinema, his presence in film gave it huge star value…those were the times. For some reason he always believed in me. He would address me as ‘Danger Diabolic’. I never asked him why and how he arrived at this name…but it did,” he added.

The film starred actors Aruna Irani, Shatrughan Sinha and Mehmood.
