Director Rajkumar Santoshi has signed Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan for his next film, “Jisne Lahore Nahih Dekhoiya Woh Janmiya Hi Nahih”. The film, which will tell the story of a Hindu family stuck in Lahore during the partition, is adapted from a stage play.
Amitabh will play the role of an old Hindu man stuck in Lahore after the partition is announced, while Abhishek will play a Muslim man who helps the old man stay in Lahore in such troubled times. The film is likely to go on the floors around Diwali this year. Abhishek however, is facing a date problem since he will start the shooting of Rohan Sippy’s film after he is done with Abhinav Deo’s “Crooked”.
