This will be his first South Indian project and Amitabh Bachchan is so excited about it. Yeah! Bollywood’s Shahenshah, Amitabh Bachchan has flown all the way down to Coimbatore, from where he’ll be driving to Ooty for the shoot of the first South Indian film project titled ‘Kandahar’. Directed by Major Ravi, the film features Malayalam superstar Mammooty in a lead role. Simultaneously made in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi, the film is produced by Pranavam International at a cost of Rs. 42Crores.
Apart from Mohan Lal, Bollywood’s latest heartthrob Neil Nithin Mukesh and ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ fame Ganesh Venkatraman will play prominent roles in this film based on the Kandahar Flight Hijack. Academy Award winner Resul Pookutty is likely to be signed for this film.
