|Still riding high on the success wave of Paa for which he’s been sweeping off awards at popular award functions, Amitabh Bachchan is not getting bogged down by the poor run of his last two releases, Rann and Teen Patti, at theatres. The megastar is learnt to have signed a fresh project titled ‘The Outsider’ to be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, who previously directed him in the critically acclaimed film Khakee.
“Finally, I have accepted Raj Kumar Santoshi's new project 'The Outsider' to be produced under the banner of Feroze Nadiadwala,” Bachchan wrote on his blog stating he was coming together with the production house after a huge gap.
“I think we (Big B and Feroze) did something in 1973, perhaps Adalat...and then nothing,” Big B said.
The superstar added that he’s not signed any film since last one year primarily because there has been a dearth of offers.
“I signed my last film more than a year ago and have not accepted anything fresh since. Primarily, of course because I have not been offered much. But whatever has been offered I have taken as a result of taking something rather than not having anything. I have not shot for a film for almost a year,” he wrote.
“The last time I did that, I went into disaster mode. It must not happen again. I must start and start now,” he concluded.
