It is final. After more than a year of to and fro that has happened around the eventual kick-start of MEHRUNISSA, it is finally happening. The film is going on floors very soon and would see Amitabh Bachchan returning in front of the camera for a film.


'He is all set to begin shooting for the film. He had been shooting extensively for SATYAGRAHA till some time back and now he returns with MEHRUNISSA. Incidentally both films are quite rooted. While Prakash Jha's film was shot extensively in Bhopal, MEHRUNISSA would take Big B to Lucknow,' informs a source.

It has to be seen though that whether he shoots the film alongside the seventh season of Kaun Banega Crorepati', the promos of which are currently on. Moreover, with Lucknow burning under the current heat wave, it is going to be taxing for all involved to actually shoot in the city.

Meanwhile for Rishi Kapoor too, it would be time to pack his bags all over again and set up base in North.

'Rishiji has already spent a lot of time in North. He was stationed in Delhi till some time back for AURANGZEB, BESHARAM as well as yet untitled film with Ayushmann Khurrana. Now he would be visiting Lucknow. He is not showing any signs of being tired though and is enjoying one of the best phases ever in his 40 years long acting career,' the source adds.

MEHRUNISSA is a story of two friends (to be played by Big B and Kapoor senior) and what happens when a woman enters their life.

'For the woman in picture too, MEHRUNISSA should be a good relief,' an insider adds, 'Chitrangda Singh has been going through a lot of turmoil owing to her personal life. She is unhappy about speculations making rounds about her divorce. She just wants to be left alone and her film with these veteran actors and favourite director Sudhir Mishra should keep her professionally busy at the least.'

We hope for that as well.
