R. Balakrishnan, director of the wonderful Cheeni Kum is getting ready to start his next project titled, Pa. The cast of the film is all ready quite extraordinary with both Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan signed on for two lead roles. Now a love interest for Abhishek has been cast, more or less, and the actress is Vidya Balan.
Balakrishan said, “We’ve already approached Vidya and she has more or less agreed. I can see her as a pair with Abhishek, can’t you?” Adding, “Vidya suits the role.”
The story is about the relationship between a father and son, and though Abhishek will have Vidya to romance, Amitabh will be going it alone for this film. Though Vidya has been in films both with Amitabh and Abhishek, it will be the first time the Abhi-Vidya jodi will be seen.
Pa is scheduled to begin filming later this year. We will keep you updated on all the news about the exciting cast and film so check back here often!
