Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - PTI

Ac­tor Ab­hishek Bachchan (above, left) has been ap­proached for a Sanjay Gupta (above, right) di­rec­to­rial, but the ac­tor is yet to take a call on it.

The project is based on S Hus­sain Zaidi’s 2014 best­seller — By­culla to Bangkok.

The story of the film will trace how young­sters were re­cruited and went on to be­come in­fa­mous gang­sters such as Arun Gawli, Ash­win Naik and Ch­hota Ra­jan. When asked if Ab­hishek will be play­ing Ch­hota Ra­jan, Gupta said, “I am not talk­ing about it. No com­ments at the mo­ment. I am on a hol­i­day in Goa.”

How­ever, sources close to the project re­veal that Bachchan ju­nior is in talks re­gard­ing a project with Sanjay. “He has been ap­proached. The talks are on. He is yet to take a call,” the source said.

Ab­hishek, 39, is cur­rently busy shoot­ing for two films. His last film was All Is Well, co-star­ring ac­tors Asin and Rishi Kapoor. The film did not do well at the box of­fice.
