Abhishek yet to take call on Sanjay Gupta’s film
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.
