"We are happy to announce that the film is titled Shamitabh. We are halfway through the shoot of the film, so I will finish that and then talk more about it. Right now, I’m enjoying watching the lethal combo of the intensity of Amitabh Bachchan, the intelligence of Dhanush, and the innocence of Akshara (Haasan)" says Balki, whose last two directorials, Cheeni Kum (2007) and Paa (2009), also featured Bachchan in lead.
The film marks the debut of south superstar Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter, Akshara.
Earlier on Thursday, Bachchan hinted on Twitter that his film will boast of a 'unique' title. "Shall be disclosing name of R Balki film .. do log in .. it is quite unique and different !!
