Amitabh Bachchan is not called a Superstar for nothing. He is always bang on time on his film’s sets, honours every commitment and always lives up to his promise. His latest act proves that. Two years ago, Amitabh was convinced by his make up man of over thirty years, Deepak Sawant to work in a Bhojpuri film that Sawant produced called Ganga.
Our sources close to Deepak revealed, “Amitji had promised Deepak that whenever he would produce his first Hindi film, he shall play the main lead in it, irrespective of the film’s budget. That is why is doing Great Dadu. The film will also star Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Balan and Hema Malini.”
â€œIn Great Dadu, playing the title role, Amitabh Bachchan will feature as a 70 year old man and Hema Malini will play his wife. Itâ€™s a family drama. And Abhishek Chhadda who directed Ganga and Gangotri will be directing the film. The movie will go on the floors this May.â€ added the sources.
The source went on to reveal that Amitabhâ€™s commitment to Deepak doesnâ€™t end with his acting role. He said, â€œAmitabh is also trying to rope in music maestro A R Rahman and also Aishwarya. He is doing all of this for Deepakâ€™s sake.
