A couple of years ago, there were reports that Sandalwood actor-turned-director Rishab Shetty and star Kiccha Sudeep would be teaming up for a new project. But even after several months, there was no news about this project, which gave rise to speculation that the project has been put in cold storage.

Well, things seem to be moving positively now as reports have surfaced that this project is very much on the cards. Along with the news, Rishab Shetty threw in a pleasant surprise as well. Yes, the film’s star cast would not only have Sudeep in the lead but also the Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role.

Rishab Shetty is reported to have said, “It is too early to divulge more details. I wanted to keep this a secret. However, I do not know how the news got leaked. The film will be a bilingual. This was the first script which I wrote years back. I have been a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and always dreamt of working with him. He is happy with the script. However, only after we officially get confirmation, I will make an announcement. The film is still in the pre-production stage and will go on floor next year (sic).”

Rishab will be making the film, which has not been titled yet, in Kannada and Hindi. Reports indicate that both Sudeep as well as Big B are impressed with the script that Rishab came up with and they agreed to join the cast without any hesitation.

Rishab Shetty, an actor and director, made his directorial debut with Ricky in 2016 but it was Kirik Party, which hit the marquee the same year, that earned him name and fame. The film ran to packed houses for 150 days in Karnataka and also won Rishab the Filmfare Award for Best Director.
