Shoojit Sircar Teams Up with Abhishek Bachchan for Next Film

52 0

Renowned filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has spilled the beans on his upcoming project, revealing that he’s set to direct Abhishek Bachchan in his next venture. This news comes hot on the heels of Sircar’s last directorial venture, the well-received ‘Sardar Udham’, starring Vicky Kaushal.

A New Collaboration in the Works

After the success of ‘Sardar Udham’, Shoojit Sircar is gearing up for his next directorial venture. This time around, he’s joining forces with Abhishek Bachchan for the first time. While the details of the film are being kept tightly under wraps, one thing is certain – it’s slated for a theatrical release next year.

A Special Connection

The partnership between Shoojit Sircar and Abhishek Bachchan holds special significance, especially considering Sircar’s history of collaborating with Abhishek’s father, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Sircar has directed Amitabh in several projects over the years, including the yet-to-be-released ‘Shoebite’. Despite being completed, ‘Shoebite’ has been embroiled in a conflict with the studio, preventing its release to date.

Additionally, Amitabh Bachchan starred in Sircar’s 2015 hit ‘Piku’, a heartwarming comedy featuring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. Then there was ‘Pink’, a powerful courtroom drama produced and creatively directed by Sircar, with Amitabh delivering a stellar performance as a lawyer. Sircar also directed the quirky comedy ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ in 2020, starring Amitabh alongside Ayushmann Khurrana.

Abhishek’s Journey

Abhishek Bachchan, known for his versatile performances, was last seen in R Balki’s ‘Ghoomer’, portraying the role of an alcoholic cricket coach. Next up for him is a dance dramedy directed by Remo D’Souza, which will reunite him with his ‘Ludo’ co-star, Inayat Verma.

For Abhishek, teaming up with Shoojit Sircar presents a unique challenge, given his father’s storied history with the director. Reflecting on his upbringing, Abhishek once shared an anecdote about attending a success party for his hit film ‘Dhoom’, only to be reminded of the towering success his father enjoyed during his prime.

As the curtains rise on this new cinematic collaboration between Shoojit Sircar and Abhishek Bachchan, fans are eagerly anticipating what magic the duo will conjure on the silver screen. With Sircar’s knack for storytelling and Abhishek’s acting prowess, this promises to be a project worth watching out for when it hits cinemas next year.
