Amitabh Bachchan To Play Aging Shakespearean Actor Once Again For Mahesh Manjrekar

Amitabh Bachchan is without doubt one of the finest actors of Bollywood and what better choice than the Big B to play the role of an aging Shakespearean actor in the on-screen adaptation of Marathi literary masterpiece Natsamrat?

Bachchan, who had played a similar role in The Last Lear, will be seen once more playing a Shakespearean actor in Mahesh Manjrekar's silver screen adaptation of the celebrated play Natsamrat penned by V. V. Shirwadkar. The Sarkar veteran is supposed to begin shooting for the film after he returns from his medical check-up abroad, sources claim.

Confirming the news, Manjrekar was quoted saying, "Mr. Bachchan has done it all. When he read Natsamrat, the character of the protagonist just grabbed him. This is the kind of challenge he is looking for at this stage of his career." Manjrekar however clarified that The Last Lear and Natsamrat are very different from each other.

The Big B will be next seen playing the role of a reformed gangster turned politician named Sarjerao Gaikwad in Ram Gopal Varma's cop drama Department, which releases on May 18, 2012.
