Big B, Abhi, Ash in Vidhu Chopra's next
After Sarkar Raj, the three most important members of the Bachchan family will again come together for a great epic Taalisman. Most part of the flick will be shot in Bhutan. Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Taalisman is a huge project and the preparatory task will kick start soon after the release of his upcoming project 3 Idiots. Ash, Abhi and Amitabh for the first time will be starred in any historic film together. Ash had the experience of featuring princess in couple of films and Abhi too enacted the role of prince in Umrao Jaan.
According to a source, "The Big B starer will be shot in the jungles of our north east neighbouring country Bhutan. The ageing superstar plays a warrior in the film, the plot of which is based on the famous Hindi novel, Chandrakanta. The makers have chosen Bhutan as the geography there is quite different. They will be erecting a huge set in Bhutan as well as one in Mumbai. It is a big project and is still in the pre-production stage. There is a lot of research to be done. But since right now, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is busy with 3 Idiots the film will go on floors only around end of 2009. Recession is another factor that is delaying the film."
"Apart from Amitabh Bachchan the mega cast of the film includes Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who plays a princess, Abhishek Bachchan in the role of a warrior prince and Sanjay Dutt in a negative character. Aishwarya's look hasn't been decided on yet but it will surely be very appealing as Chandrakanta is charismatic and physically strong. She will be required to do sword fighting."
