Amitabh Bachchan to star in Sujoy Ghosh's 'Badla'
Sujoy Ghosh made a splash all over Bollywood with his much acclaimed ‘Kahaani’. The film did extremely well at the box office and the team received much praises for it. Vidya Balan was loved in the role, and she went on to win the Best Actress award at every award function. Sujoy Ghosh was praised for his directorial skills. The team in all won a lot of accolades as well as critical acclaim. Made on a modest budget of 8 crore, the film went on to make over 80 crores.
For his next film ‘Badla’, Sujoy Ghosh has managed a casting coup of sorts with Amitabh Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah and Vidya Balan making up the star cast. Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan successfully played the part of a son and a mother respectively in ‘Paa’, and they shared some really good moments. Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah sizzled on the screen in ‘Ishqiya’ as well as ‘The Dirty Picture’. It is a revenge saga and it remains to be seen how this one will unfold.
‘Kahaani 2’ is on the anvil, and it will be bigger and better this time. Sujoy Ghosh was heard saying, “Yes, I can assure you that Amitabh Bachchan will be part of Kahaani 2 in some way or the other. His blessings matter a lot to me. I can't see myself making any films without him.”
On asked about the shooting of ‘Kahaani 2’, Sujoy Ghosh quipped, “In a month's time... I am still scripting the film so I can't say exactly when I will start shooting. The story will be a continuation from where we have left Kahaani. Yes, I am planning to make Vidya do some action sequence in Kahaani 2 but let's see how things shape up. It's going to be challenging for me to prove myself again, but I am not thinking about that at all. I am just hoping for the best.”
Vidya Balan was aptly supported by Parambrata Chatterjee and Nawazuddin Siddique, and she was heard quipping about ‘Kahaani’, “When we started Kahaani, only two people were associated with it, Sujoy and me. But later others joined in. We tried to make a good film, people liked it and we have grabbed a lot of other awards for the film till now.”
After receiving her Filmfare
award, she was asked about ‘Kahaani 2’ and she said, “Ask Sujoy, I am very
excited to know which Kahaani he has written. So, let's see.”
