Superstar Amitabh Bachchan took to micro blogging website and shared a proud picture of his son Abhishek Bachchan raising the national flag at Attari border Amritsar. In his first post he mentioned that Abhishek has raised the flag at Wagah border but later corrected the statemen in another post by saying that he was at the Attari side as Wagah is Pakistan’s land. This border of two countries lies in Amritsar where the parade happens everyday in the evening and it is open to public viewing where Abhishek arrived as he is shooting for his upcoming film ‘Manmarziyan’ in Amritsar.
Anurag Kashyap directorial ‘Manmarziyan’ in on the verge of completing it’s schedule in there hence Abhishek did not want to miss the opportunity of visiting the place. Abhishek is playing the role of a sikh in this one and coming back on celluloid after two long years. Last time Abhishek was in theaters is Housefull 3 also starring Akshay Kumar released in 2016 and did a phenomenal business on the box office. Despite of super success of the film, Abhishek took an unplanned sabbatical till Kashyap got him interested in the script.
‘Manmarziyan’ is produced by Anand Rai who himself is directing Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Zero’ and also produced Kashyap’s cult ‘Mukkabaaz’. Film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal in leading roles while Abhishek seems to be the center of cast in there. Vicky had a not so long schedule which he got done with in a matter of few days and bounced off the film though Abhishek has been shooting completely hence he could be the one eventually taking maximum screen time on screen. This one is a romantic film, the likes of which Kashyap has never made hence it would be interesting to see him taking on this genre with sensitivity.
