|The jamboree just got bigger! After enthralling his fans all over the world with his KBC series, superstar Amitabh Bachchan is all set to act in a daily soap.
The star recently wrapped up the shoot of the sixth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, and is preparing for his next small screen stint. As a daily reports, Big B will make his small screen acting debut in a daily soap that is set to go on air later this year. Sources further claim that the serial will be co-produced by the star’s banner ABCL. And that also means that Big B is looking forward to invest in small screen.
It’s said that Sr. Bachchan was apparently toying with the idea of doing a television serial for a while now. Last year, the 70-year-old actor even held meetings with several channel producers, expressing his desire to do a daily soap. Though some of the channels came up with a few ideas and presentations, nothing materialized.
Since this is Amitabh Bachchan’s maiden acting stint on telly, the project is a fiercely guarded secret. “The budgets are huge and the serial is going to be another game-changer for Mr Bachchan in the industry,” tells a source to a daily.
It is also being said that though Big B will be the face of the serial, he may not appear in every episode. But he will surely not leave any stone unturned to promote it as it’s going to be his own co-production.
As for now, Amitabh Bachchan is about to start working on Satyagraha in Bhopal. Meanwhile, the auditions for the rest of the cast of the telly serial are being carried out at several studios, reveal reports.
