Puri Jagannath’s film “Budda” with Big B
Finally, Tollywood director Puri Jagannath is entering Bollywood with a film titled “Budda” and he has roped in Amitabh Bachchan for the lead role.
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan has clarified that he is not playing the role of Gautam Buddha in Puri Jagannathan’s film Budda.
“Media is thinking that the next film of mine with Puri is on Gautam Buddha simply because the title approved for that film is Budda, which means an old man and not Buddhist saint Gautam Buddha,” the Big B wrote on his blog.
“Either the electronic media misunderstood the title because of the spelling or they mixed the other news of Vivek Sharma, director of Bhoothnath, wishing to make a film titled Buddham Sharanam Gachchami with me,” Amitabh added.
