Abhishek Bachchan to play the lead role in ‘Manmarziyaan’?
Pictures of Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu from the sets of Manmarziyan, by director Anurag Kashyap, which is the comeback of Abhishek after a two-year gap.
‘Manmarziyan’ has been a rollercoaster ride, given that the initial cast and director kept on changing due to reasons unknown.
Said to be directed by Sameer Arya and starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, the film was later reportedly taken over by Ahswini Iyer Tiwari, but opted out as she was busy with ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’.
Lately, there was news of Malayalam actor Dulqer Salmaan playing the lead role in the film along with Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
Now the final news says that Abhishek Bachchan would be playing the lead role along side Tapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. The pictures have been uploaded as proof by Amitabh Bachchan and Anand L Rai.
Abhishek can be seen wearing a turban. He has a stern expression on his face. Taapsee and Vicky, meanwhile, look like the perfect young Punjabi couple, with Vicky even sporting a new hairstyle and a Jim Morrison T-shirt. Vicky previously worked with Anurag on Raman Raghav 2.0, in which he played a drug-addled cop.
On seeing Abhisek's picture , this is what Amitabh Bachchan had to say ,
“Your Daadi, Teji Kaur Suri pre marriage .. your par Nana Khazan Singh Suri .. your par Naani Amar Kaur Sodhi .. & all related must feel great pride and love for you .. as do I,”
The cast and crew has been sharing frequent updates from the sets of the Punjab-set romantic drama - from Anurag’s workouts with Taapsee to visits to the Golden Temple.
Manmarziyan is co-produced by Aanand L Rai. Taapsee in an interview to IANS had said
"the film is a beautiful mix of the different worlds of filmmakers Aanand L Rai and Anurag Kashyap.”
This will be the first time that Abhishek will be collaborating with Taapsee and Vicky for a project. The film is set to release on September 7th.
