After the riveting success of the satirical OMG OH MY GOD!, Umesh Shukla will direct his next for T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar and Varun Bajaj and has roped in none other than Abhishek Bachchan for the film, that goes on floors later this year.
Making their first collaboration even more special, producer Bhushan Kumar gifted the script to the star on the occasion of his birthday.
Says Bhushan Kumar, ''We are happy to announce Abhishek Bachchan as the lead of our ambitious next directed by Umesh Shukla and what better day than his birthday to make the announcement. They've both had a good year, Abhishek with BOL BACHCHAN and Umesh with OMG OH MY GOD!. My co-producers and I agreed that Abhishek fits the role. We didn't even think of anyone else.''
While Abhishek Bachchan has been confirmed as lead in the film that delves into the equation between a man and his son, details of the rest of the star cast are being kept under tight wraps.
Adds producer Varun Bajaj, ''After OMG OH MY GOD! we wanted to do a social comedy with Umeshji. This film is based on a father and son relationship. The film is funny as well as emotional. It gives out a message in the end.''
Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Varun Bajaj, the untitled film will go on floors later this year.
