Amitabh, Anurag Kashyap to collaborate on full-length feature

Actor Amitabh Bachchan will team up with acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap for a full-length feature film, the Bollywood megastar announced today.

The as-yet-untitled film will be produced by Kashyap's Phantom Films, a new production house founded by Kashyap, fellow director Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan), 'Ghajini' producer Madhu Mentena and the former head of UTV Spotboy Vikas Bahl, with the remit of making films which are 'content-driven' as opposed to star-driven.

According to reports the film will be a thriller with Mr Bachchan leading an ensemble cast and is set for a 2014 release.

The senior Bachchan has become an increasingly vocal supporter of Kashyap - India's leading independent filmmaker - after a patchy and controversial early relationship between the two.

The 70-year-old actor recently opened the doors to his house 'Pratiksha' in Mumbai to allow Kashyap to film a segment of 'Bombay Talkies'; a series of shorts celebrating 100 years of Bollywood cinema and featuring four leading Bollywood film directors, including Karan Johar and Dibarkar Bannerjee.

“I am delighted to be working with Anurag, a director, who has through his rugged belief in his kind of cinema, compelled us to fall in line with him. I have a general concept of the story and anxiously wait for him to begin shooting,” Amitabh said in a statement.

'Gangs of Wasseypur' director Kashyap said he was 'thrilled' with the impending collaboration.

“Like everyone, I have also been a fan of Mr.Bachchan from my growing-up years. Though I wanted to make a film with him for the longest time, I wanted to be sure that the role is something he has never done before. While working on the short film with him, I got this idea, which we discussed and he agreed,” he said.
