A character in the movie says “Bollywood ke bina is desh ka kya hoga?” (What will happen to this country without Bollywood?). R Balakrishnan's latest 'Shamitabh' is the picture behind the big Bollywood dream – the dream without which our country may fail to keep up its everlasting spirit.
Sharing the frame with a stalwart like Amitabh Bachchan and a star actor like Dhanush in her debut movie ‘Shamitabh’ has helped Akshara Haasan imbibe a valuable learning for her film journey - that she must treat every new project as her first.
Akshara Haasan did not have any plans to turn actor but when the offer to star in 'Shamitabh' came her way, she could not say no. The 24-year-old actress, the younger daughter of Kamal Haasan and Sarika, worked as an assistant director for four years but never felt the need to shift to acting.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan today dismissed suggestion that his name has been incorporated in his upcoming movie 'Shamitabh' for creating some kind of sensation and described the film as a "never before seen" plot.
Southern superstar Dhanush, who made a successful Bollywood debut in 2013 with ‘Raanjhanaa’, is gearing up for the release of his second Hindi film ‘Shamitabh’. He says its concept may sound serious, but at heart it's a fun-filled entertainer.
