Mumbai, Aug 20, Director duo Abbas-Mustan may soon direct Amitabh Bachchan in a film for the first time and the project could be pushed ahead of Abhishek-starrer “The Italian Job”.
The film with Big B would be a hard-hitting socially-relevant subject written by Nishikant Kamat who directed the intense anti-terror film “Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan”.
When asked about the project, Abbas-Mustan feigned ignorance.
“We have not approached Amitji for any film,” said Abbas initially. Then when told that Big B has confirmed his presence in an Abbas-Mustan film, Abbas sang a different tune. “Yes, we are working with him. But we haven’t decided what.”
