Rishab Shetty gets big-ticket film with Big B
The director met Amitabh Bachchan in Mumbai a month ago with a suitable script, but says talks are still in the initial stages
While a beeline of Kannada actors have been making their foray into Hindi films, here is a director, Rishab Shetty, who has managed to get a big-ticket film with Big B himself. Rishabh, who is also an established actor in Kannada, is likely to associate with Amitabh Bachchan soon.
The director, who had a suitable story for Amitabh, met him in Mumbai a month ago, a meeting he had kept under wraps until recently. "It's true that I met Amitabh Bachchan, but talks are in the initial stage. He liked the plot, but I still have to develop it," says Rishab.
The director is also keen to rope in Sudeep for the film. "I have hinted at my interest to Sudeep, but I still have to get into a detailed discussion," he says, adding,"I want to concentrate on this project and work on it sometime in 2019."
