Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994), Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999) and Vivah (2006). Aren’t you excited listening all these names? You must have been ! Because these were not just box office successes but also worked big time on television. This is the magic of direction by director Sooraj Barjatya. Although His last directorial, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) got mixed response but was still a hit at the box office and on satellite.
Now what’s in news is that, veteran filmmaker is reported to be all set to begin his next film, starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead which excites audience even more.
Moreover a source reveals that Big B is looking forward to shoot the film excitedly. The source says, “This is the first time that Amitabh Bachchan is teaming up with Sooraj Barjatya. When Sooraj ji came to narrate Mr Bachchan the script, the latter was in for a surprise. Sooraj ji has a very entertaining and dramatic style of narrating the film. He even hums the song and background score to give the actor a complete feel of the film. Mr Amitabh Bachchan naturally was floored by this technique. Also, he loved the script and was bowled over by its rootedness and simplicity. He hasn’t done such a role and worked in such a family entertainer in more than a decade. Hence, he immediately came on board.”
Its even said that Amitabh Bachchan had made some adjustments in his busy schedule to accommodate himself in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, which is expected to roll in February.
With this film, Amitabh Bachchan now has 6 films in the waiting list to be released. Two films of his which will find a release soon are Chehre and Jhund, both of which are ready. He recently finished shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s sci-fi entertainer Brahmastra. And besides Vikas Bahl’s next and Sooraj Barjatya’s flick, he is also expected to soon begin shooting for Nag Ashwin’s futuristic film, co-starring Prabhas and Deepika Padukone.
