Priyadarshan’s next is with Abhishek Bachchan!
After a five year long gap, ace filmmaker Priyadarshan is set to make a comeback to Bollywood. The director’s next movie will have Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role. Though speculations have been doing the rounds for sometime now, it was only recently that Priyadarshan confirmed the project. Reportedly, the script works have already been completed.
Priyadarshan along with his team is now busy with the casting process. This yet-to-be-titled movie will be a fun filled family entertainer. They are planning to start shooting by the first week of June in the picturesque Dharamsala.
Priyadarshan’s last release was ‘Nimir’, the Tamil remake of acclaimed Malayalam movie ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’. The movie starring Udhayanidhi Stalin, Namitha Pramod and Parvathii Nair in the lead roles failed to click at the box office.
Meanwhile, there also reports about the director working on a period flick with superstar Mohanlal. This big budget movie based on the life of naval chieftain Kunjali Marakkar will be funded by Santhosh T Kuruvilla’s Moonshot Entertainment.
