Balki, while discussing the film earlier, has said that the movie has got three leads, and will see the magical combination of Dhanush with Mr. Bachchan. So how did Akshara Haasan come into the scene? Isn’t Balki’s decision to cast a newbie like Akshara alongside stars like Dhanush and Amitabh Bachchan a bold move?
Looks like Balki is confident about Akshara’s acting chops.
Balki noticed her when she was assisting director Rahul Dholakia, who has worked with Akshara’s mother in two films. Unlike her sister Shruti Haasan, Akshara enjoys being behind the camera, and has even studied filmmaking. It seems Balki’s offer was too attractive for Akshara to refuse, and she decided to dive in. Akshara has got mom Sarika’s soft looks and dewy eyes, and looks quite a heroine material.
Dhanush, who made an impressive mark with Raanjhanna also confirms doing Balki’s movie. “My next Hindi film is with Balki Sir and I am very excited about it. Also, it would be a privilege to share screen space with Big B himself,” Dhanush posted on his Twitter page.
R. Balki is done with the script. He describes it as a conflict drama, the conflict being between all his three actors.
We say the combination of Dhanush, Akshara Haasan and Amitabh Bachchan looks quite fetching. The untitled movie will go on the floors next year, and will release in 2015.
