The Bollywood grapevine is buzzing with rumours about Amitabh Bachchan shooting for his next film, towards the end of April. Industry sources reveal that the actor could feature in a song in Ajay Devgn's next release, also featuring Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. The 69-year-old legend had been resting after two abdominal surgeries earlier this February and recently returned to face the camera for a promo of the upcoming Indian Premiere League.
According to our source, director Rohit Shetty has five days of shoot left, including a song. "The song features all the principal actors -- Ajay Devgn, Abhishek, Asin Thottumukal and Prachi Desai. Someone suggested getting Amitji to also feature in this song, as it's a very lively and foot tapping number. Someone else in the team also suggested getting the actor to introduce the film to the audience," said our source.
However, another source associated with Rohit Shetty, pointed out, "It is still too early to say anything about any special appearances. Only after things are finalised, can something be said for sure."
About the film
It is a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1970 cult comedy, Gol Maal. Interestingly, Abhishek Bachchan shares his real name with his character in the film.
