Big B

Just two days after the team behind SS Rajamouli’s RRR put out a behind-the-scenes video of their film resuming shoot after the lockdown, we got the news of another big Telugu project getting even bigger. The team behind Nag Ashwin’s new film (which commemorates 50 years of the production company Vyjayanthi Movies), announced that ‘Legend’ Amitabh Bachchan too would be joining the project after Deepika Padukone and Prabhas.

In a short video, the makers ask, “How Can We Make a Legendary Film Without…The Legend?”, over a montage of some of the actor’s great character through the years. “Bringing together India’s biggest stars,” the video goes on to add, hinting at the truly nationwide appeal the film is going for.

Watch the video here:

In July, when they had announced Deepika Padukone’s entry into the project, the same team had posted a small video, which included a slide of the illustrious actors the production house had worked with. These include stars such as Sridevi, Aishwarya Rai, Suhasini, Jayaprada, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee and Keerthi Suresh, who won the National Award for her performance as the legendary Savitri in Nag Ashwin’s Mahanati. Mahanati, the director’s previous film, was both a commercial success as well as a hit with critics, and went on to bag two other National Awards.

As for Prabhas, the title of his epic love story Radhe Shyam was announced on July 10. It is being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar.
