The movie, also featuring Dhanush, marks the Bollywood debut of superstar Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara
The 71-year-old actor, who will be seen in a rugged look with grey unkempt moustaches and beard in Shamitabh, said it has become difficult to hide the get-up of the film from paparazzi.
The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush
Tamil film Vellai Illa Pattathari featuring Dhanush is slated to release on July 18, and its director Velraj says that the actor, who is a pleasure to work with, chipped in with suggestions for the script wherever needed.

The last time Amitabh Bachchan sang in a movie was for Paa in 2009. The megastar will again lend his voice for R Balki's upcoming venture Shamitabh.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan had to face a "strange" moment when he had to shoot at the Seven Hills Hospital, the place where he underwent surgeries and saw the birth of his granddaughter Aaradhya.
Director R Balakrishnan, fondly called Balki, has been busy filming his new project starring Amitabh Bachchan, but it is only now that he has revealed the title of the film - Shamitabh. Interestingly, it sounds similar to the Bollywood megastar's name.
The 30-year-old actor made his Hindi film debut with Anand L Rai's Raanjhanaa last year and earned accolades for playing a boy from Banaras.
Abhishek Bachchan, who earlier produced the 2009-released film Paa which turned out to be a hit, is now set to produce his next film to be directed by R Balki and also featuring Amitabh Bachchan.
Veteran actress Sarika is excited about her younger daughter Akshara Haasan's acting debut. But the star mom doesn't want to share any tips with her as she believes the latter should find her own way.
