Legendary bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is all set to star in his next Marathi film after Nagraj Manjule’s Jhund. The film is titled “AB Ani CD”. And, is directed by Milind Lele. Milind Lele told indianexpress.com, “Amitabh Bachchan and Vikram Gokhale play the titular characters in AB ani CD. It is a story about two friends. It is a light comedy film.”
Talking about Mr. Bachchan’s character in the film, Milind said, “Amitabh Bachchan is playing himself in AB ani CD. We have been working on the film since last year, but talks with Amitabh Bachchan started only six months ago when Vikram Gokhale introduced me to him. When I narrated the story to Amitabhji, he suggested a few changes. We had some very good creative discussions and after incorporating the changes, he gave us his dates. We will start shooting from 20th of this month in Mumbai”.
AB stands for Amitabh Bachchan, CD stands for Chandrakant Deshpande. Amitabh Bachchan and Vikram Gokhale have worked together in Agneepath (1990). But, this is first time both will appear in a marathi movie together. Subodh Bhave will also be a part of this movie. It would be interesting to see Subodh Bhave & Amitabh Bachchan two legends of each sides sharing same screen. Gat-Mat Actor Akshay Tanksale is also part of the film. Recently, he shared on his Instagram a image of him dubbing for the movie. So it’s interesting to know wheather movie will be released in Hindi too. We don’t know about this. Stay tuned with Marathi Khabri for further updates.
