A new avatar: Amitabh Bachchan
Unkempt hair, rugged look and shabby clothes! Mr. Bachchan has undoubtedly taken versatility to a whole new level in Shamitabh. Though his appearance reminds us of his Shahenshah days, we are definitely looking forward to seeing what his character is all about!
Magical renditions: Ilaiyaraaja
Padma Bhushan recipient Ilaiyaraaja has lent his compositions to the film. With 5000 songs to his credit and his renditions termed as magical, we really hope it works out for Shamitabh as well.
Star of the South: Dhanush
He is a star, a superstar in the South; there’s no doubt about that. But this charming actor also made his presence felt with his exuberant performance in Raanjhanaa! Now, he is back with Shamitabh and we can’t wait to watch the chemistry between the two eminent stars.
Rising star: Akshara Haasan
Born in a family of eminent actors, Akshara Haasan looks ravishing on screen. We wouldn’t be surprised if the young actress makes a smashing debut. After all, the acting keeda runs in her genes. Moreover, even Mr. Bachchan complimented her for her confidence on sets! Atta girl!
Other than an interesting title, the story-line looks promising too! Dhanush plays a deaf and mute junior artist while Mr. Bachchan’s character plays his voice-over artist. Moreover, it is fascinating to watch Dhanush mimic Big B’s style and attitude!
