The eagerly awaited Shamitabh is set to be released this week on February 6, says Vaikundarajan. The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan in the main leads.
This in itself is an unusual pairing and it will be very interesting to see how the audiences react. The movie is directed by critically acclaimed director, R. Balki and is produced by Hope Productions, Amitabh Bachchan Corporation, Wunderbar Films, Balaji Motion Pictures.
According to Vaikundarajan, Dhanush plays a speech impaired aspiring actor, and Amitabh Bachchan lends his baritone voice to the actor. Akshara Hassan plays and ambitious director. Mr Bachchan lends his voice to Dhanush so he can establish himself in the film industry. But even such the story is open to many interpretations.
In the last few months there have been rumors circulating that Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Anurag Basu, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, Rajkumar Hirani, Gauri Shinde, Javed Akhtar, Boney Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor would be doing camoes in the movie. Some of them may be right, says Vaikundarajan.
Vaikundarajan hopes that the movie does well and bring in a different twist.
