Chennai: Post his father’s working in the Bhojpuri movies, it is now the turn of Abhishek Bachchan to be starred in a Bhojpuri movie. Yes, Abhishek has been roped in to the movie, Amitabh Bachchan’s make up man Deepak Sawant is making.
Deepak told that one day Abhishek himself asked him why he was not starred into his movies. Thus it was Abhishek’s liking to be featured into a Bhojpuri film. After Abhishek showed his liking, Deepak fetched him into the movie. Now Abhi will be the part of Sawant’s film.
He also reveals the title of the movie ‘Ganga Ramji’. Deepak tells that it is a political saga and tells about how a third political figure gets the benefits from the brawl of two politicians. He reveals that Abhishek’s role is quite powerful. Amitabh Bachchan has enacted in three films of Deepak so far including Ganga Devi, Ganga, Gangotri.
Ganga Devi happens to be a political thriller which talks about women reservations. It features the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, his wife Jaya Bachchan, Pakhee Hegde, Dinesh Lal Yadav and Gulshan Grover in main leads. He mentions that the film’s release has been stopped and got postponed after the IPL season is over.
Deepak informs that he does not want loses after releasing the film during IPL thus he wants to release it after IPL gets over. He says people are crazy for the cricketing fiesta of IPL so during this time, releasing a movie is a big loss.
Amitabh cannot say ‘no’ to his makeup man Deepak which was why he agreed to do the film with him even he just got better from the abdominal surgeries few months back. Now when Amitabh’s son shows his interest, he instantly hires him in his movie. A good gesture of give and take.
