'Bhootnath' to bring Amitabh, Juhi together
Subhash K. Jha, IANS
After "Baghban" and "Baabul", producer Ravi Chopra casts Amitabh Bachchan for the third time in "Bhootnath", which will also feature Juhi Chawla in a pivotal role.
The film, which revolves around a man (Amitabh) and a child, will be the superstar's third film in two years where his main interaction is with a child. In Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Black" and Apoorva Lakhia's "Ek Ajnabee", too, the Big B has acted with child artistes.
"It's (the film) an interesting concept, and I couldn't say no to Ravi. We've known each other from the time I did 'Zameer' for his banner more than three decades ago. Of course, 'Baghban' and 'Baabul' have cemented my relationship with the Chopras," Amitabh told IANS.
"Bhootnath", planned as a year-end quickie, will also bring Amitabh together with Juhi, who has never worked with him except for once playing his daughter - in Suneil Darshan's "Ek Rishta".
"Bhootnath" is being directed by Chopra's associate Vivek Sharma.
