Actor Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently shooting for Tamil film Uyarndha Manithan, will be sharing the screen space with actress Ramya Krishnan. Two decades after working together in Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998), Ramya and Bachchan are joining hands once again.
Uyarndha Manithan, which is being simultaneously made in Tamil and Hindi, stars SJ Surya in the titular role.
Director Tha Tamilvanan, opening up about roping in Ramya Krishnan, told The Times Of India: “Ramya ma’am has already started shooting for the film, and she will be filming with us for another week. We are shooting in Mumbai now, and she’s paired opposite Amitabhji. The fact that two actors of such high calibre are coming together after such a long gap is quite exciting. She was quite happy to do this role.”
Earlier this week, Suryah revealed the first glimpse of Bachchan’s character from the film. Seen sporting a white dhoti and red gamcha, Bachchan was sporting a look that’s quite different from anything he’s done in recent times.
Surya took to Twitter to share the pictures. He wrote: “Happiest moment of my life. Thank you God, mom and dad for fulfilling a dream which I have never even dreamt of.”
During the launch of Uyarndha Manithan last year, Surya had said: “Even before I ventured into showbiz as an assistant director, I craved for this moment to work with him. Now, to see it happening sends gold rush into my veins, but at the same time, I’m nervous to imagine that I am going to share the screen space with him.”
