Abhishek Bachchan might play Rajiv Gandhi, who was also a very good friend of his father Amitabh Bachchan , in a movie that will expose the plot behind 1991 assassination of former Prime Minister.

Notwithstanding the fact that the Gandhis and Bachchans are at the moment at loggerheads, especially politically, the film becomes even more exciting as it will feature Abhishek (or Sanjay Dutt , who again is in the inner circle of the Bachchans and was one of the select film industry invitees to the Abhishek - Aishwarya Rai wedding last month) in the lead.



The film is slated to be made by Anubhav Sinha , who last directed Dus and Tathastu .

Sinha with a small team has reportedly been researching the assassination for months and claims to have come across some startling and so far unknown facts.

It may be recalled that Rajiv Gandhi was blown apart by an LTTE suicide bomber at Sriperumbudur near Chennai.

Sinha calls his film a "celluloid investigation of Rajiv Gandhi's assassination, tackling questions that were never asked, let alone answered."

Sinha hopes to complete the film by the end of next year.
