Amitabh Bachchan to play MF Husain

If things go according to plan then soon we will get to see Amitabh Bachchan stepping into the shoes of renowned painter MF Husain’s in his biopic to be directed by Prabhakar Shukla. Before Shukla could discuss the details of the movie with Husain, he passed away in London due to heart attack. The director feels Amitabh fits the role and he is keen to rope in Mr. Bachchan.

The film titled, ‘Husain-The Painter’. Big B was very close to Husain and had fond memories of the artist. When Big B was admitted to hospital when he met with an accident during the shooting of ‘Coolie’, MF Husain gifted him a painting of Lord Hanuman carrying the sanjivani booti.

Shukla is yet to approach Mr. Bachchan and he is on hunt of a producer to back his big budget film.
