Uyarndha Manithan reportedly stars Ramya Krishnan opposite Amitabh for the first time since the 1998 Bollywood film, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.
The film went on floors earlier this month and the crew is currently filming sequences with Ramya Krishnan and Amitabh in Mumbai. The Badla actor was earlier reported to have given 35 days for the project.
The film, bankrolled by Purple Bull International, is expected to be released in Tamil and Hindi, under the titles Uyarndha Manithan and The Great Man, respectively.
