Actor Amitabh Bachchan may be pushing 70 but there’s no stopping the passion of this man for cinemas. The emperor of Bollywood is set to romance Hema Malini and Raveena Tandon in his upcoming film ‘Buddha.’
He shall be reprising old school romance with Hema with whom he first starred in the classic flick ‘Satte Pe Satta.’ Over the years they have starred in a string of films including the much acclaimed ‘Baghban.’ The last time they were seen together on screen was in 2006’s ‘Baabul’ that was helmed by Ravi Chopra.
Besides Hema, interestingly, Big B shall have another lead lady in ‘Buddha’ in the form of the ravishing Raveena Tandon. Amitabh’s character is that of an old man who is still young at heart. He is trendy and apes modernity and loathes it when people refer to him as an old man. He sports coloured hair and funky clothes teamed with updated accessories.
Initially, actresses Juhi Chawla and Tabu (with whom he starred in ‘Cheeni Kam’) were also considered for playing the role that has now fallen on the laps of Raveena. However, Raveena is keeping her lips sealed by citing that nothing has been finalised yet.
The film is a medium-budgeted one and shall be going on floors this March.
