Dhanush and Amitabh Bachchan with Kamal daughter
In what can be termed as a sensational casting of the year actor Dhanush is going to share screen with none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself, according to the latest news doing the rounds in Bollywood circles. As if that was not enough the film will mark the debut of younger daughter of Kamal Haasan, Akshara Haasan. So isn’t it a big casting coup? And the director who has pulled off this casting is R Balki, maker of critically as well as commercially successful films such as Cheeni Kum and Paa.

The director as we all know is a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and has always cast the actor in his films while at the same time giving him the central role. Also he has this knack of making the cast interesting too, for it was him in the past that paired Tabu with Amitabh for the first time in their career. In the second film Paa he got Amitabh’s son Abhishek with him along with Vidya Balan. And now this casting is sure to become the talk of town.

And it doesn’t just end with unusual casting, the director comes up with unusual themes too like the old man-middle aged women romance in Cheeni Kum or the role-reversal of father and son in Paa where Amitabh plays son of Abhishek. What is he going to come up with this time has got the movie lovers as well as the industry excited. Let’s see what the director has up his sleeve this time. A word of caution though, in the past it was rumored that Shah Rukh Khan would be part of the project but that doesn’t look to be the case now, so one has to wait till an official confirmation from the director himself.
