Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan’s look is out from Uyarntha Manithan.
With this movie, Bib B is making his Kollywood debut in a full-fledged role alongside actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah. Uyarntha Manithan will be simultaneously made in Hindi as well.
Amitabh has donned a gamcha and dhoti for his role in the film written by Javar Seetharaman and directed by Krishnan–Panju.
His look was revealed by Suryah on Twitter. The pictures went viral on social media in no time. He wrote: “Happiest moment of my life. Thank you God, mom and dad for fulfilling a dream which I have never even dreamt of.”
He went on to thank Amitabh for working alongside him. Suryah also thanked superstar Rajinikanth and filmmaker A.R Murugadoss. Big B has earlier donned similar looks in films like Bunty Aur Babli.
In another tweet, he explained why he thanked Rajinikanth and Murugadoss. “Murugadoss sir helped me get this movie on board and our superstar Rajinikanth helped me by announcing the project. That’s why thanked both of them.”
During the launch of Uyarntha Manithan last year, Suryah said: “Even before I ventured into showbiz as an assistant director, I craved for this moment to work with him. Now, to see it happening sends gold rush into my veins, but at the same time, I’m nervous to imagine that I am going to share the screen space with him.”
Suryah had also revealed that Big B has set aside 35 days for this project. The film will be directed by Tamilvaanan, who had previously directed Suryah in Kalavanin Kaadhali.
Mr. Bachchan has worked in some other South Indian movies including Kandahar, alongside Mohanlal and Manam which was produced by the Akkineni family under Annapurna studios.
