Big B in Nagraj Manjule’s next
According to a Times of India report two-time National Award-winning Marathi filmmaker, Nagraj Manjule, is making his bollywood debut with a yet-untitled social drama. It features Millenium star Amitabh Bachchan as a patriarch with shades of grey. After his 2016 drama, Sairat, went on to become the highest grossing Marathi film, being remade in Telugu and Punjabi and picked up by Karan Johar for a Hindi-remake, Nagraj began scripting another film. He had the concept for a while and had planned it as a Marathi film, but after Sairat, he wanted to revisit the story in Hindi. “Nagraj worked on it for a year-and-a-half before taking the script to Bachchan in January.The project was locked soon after,” reveals the report, adding that the film is expected to roll later this year.
