Jaya Bachchan with Amitabh Bachchan at The Launch of NDTV Lumiere_s The Orphanage in PVR Juhu on May 29th 2008(31).JPGThe Bachchans who pride on brandishing the Bachchan brand were initially set on a script that would have Abhi-Ash in the lead, but with Mani Ratnam’s film taking longer than expected to complete the talk is that the Bachchans don’t want another film with the two coming out in quick succession. So they have no zeroed down on a film based on the lives of two aging dons and their quest for survival against the new breed of mafia.

The movie is set in Mumbai and obviously Big B will be playing one of the leads. And they are very keen on roping in Dharmendra who has made a comeback to mainstream Bollywood to play his partner-in-crime. Amitabh personally called Dharmendra and sounded off the project to him and the script has been sent over to the Deol house. Nitpicking son Sunny is still doing his analysis of the script before he lets his Papa say a yes, but we will be only happy to see Jai-Veeru work their magic again.
