Abhishek Bachchan's next with Rajshris!

JODHAA AKBAR's stupendous success has driven many filmmakers to make films on the prominent & glorious characters of history. And not surprisingly, the latest to join the bandwagon are Rajshris who are well-known for making films based on family-oriented dramas & Indian culture & tradition.
If the current media reports are to be believed than Rajshris are planning a bio-pic on the life and music of the legendary musician-singer Tansen, who regaled Emperor Akbar's court in the 16th century. And just like during their EK VIVAAH AISA BHI, this time too the direction of the film will not be handled by Sooraj Barjatya and instead an outsider would look after the direction. This time director Satish Kaushik will be directing their movie.
Evidently, the last important film on Tansen was made way back in 1943 when K L Saigal immortalized the classical vocalist with his screen presence and voice in a film directed by Jayant Desai. Media even speculated that Barjatyas-Satish might zero in on singer-turned-actor Himesh Reshammiya as he is the only actor-singer prevailing in Bollywood at present and can perfectly fit the bill. But seems like Barjatyas had their own mind, they didn't even consider their favourite Salman for that matter. It is heard that they are planning to rope in Abhishek Bachchan to play Tansen. As according to Barjatyas and Satish KAushik, Abhishek has the perfect look and intensity with perfect flair of dialogue delivery. Also supposedly, the Aby Baby is pretty fluent in Hindi language just like his father (Big B) which could be an added advantage for the makers.
Apparently if Abhishek becomes a part of this project than this would be his second outing with Rajshris after MAIN PREM KI DIWANI HOON. If everything goes accordingly than this would be for the first time when director Satish Kaushik & Bollywood giants Rajshris will work together on a project.
