Abhishek to produce Balki’s next starring Big B

Mumbai, Dec 16: Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who earlier produced the 2009-released film “Paa” which turned out to be a hit, is now set to produce his next film to be directed by R. Balki and also featuring Amitabh Bachchan.

“Balki’s new film is a much bigger film. It will require a higher budget compared to ‘Paa’. We are currently in the process of locking the script and working on it. The pre-production is going on. It’s a bigger film so the film requires bigger budget,” Abhishek told IANS when asked about the budget and pre-production plans of the film.

Reportedly Balki is all set to launch Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter Akshara Haasan with this film opposite Dhanush. The film also features megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Talking about his own acting plans, Abhishek who has also been part of a Bengali film titled “Antarmahal” with late Rituparno Ghosh, says he is open to doing regional films as well.

“I have done Bengali films. I am an actor so if I am comfortable I am ready to work in any language. If I can overcome the hurdle of language and if I feel I can do justice to the role I am open to it,” he said.
