New Delhi: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Bollywood 'Queen' Kangana Ranaut would soon be co-stars. If reports are to be believed, filmmaker R Balki has apparently approached Kangana to play an amputee, 'who reclaims her life after a freak accident' with the help of her mentor. 

Big B has been approached to play the role of her mentor in the movie. 

Though Kangana has previously worked with Amitabh in a commercial, if things go as planned, this would the first time that the national-award-winning actress would be seen with the megastar on the big release. 

A source told NDTV that both the actors are expected to sign the contract next week and an official announcement about the same will be made later this month. The source further added that Kangana will require a two-month-long preparation to adapt to the body language of a differently-abled person.

Meanwhile, Kangana is currently filming 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi', which will release in August this year whereas Amitabh is filming Yash Raj Films-produced 'Thugs Of Hindostan', slated for Diwali 2018 release.

He will also be seen in '102 Not Out' alongside Rishi Kapoor, with whom he will be sharing the screen after almost 27 years. The first official teaser of the film was released on Friday as it portrayed a unique bond a father and a son share.
