Following the phenomenal success of English Vinglish worldwide, Eros International Media Limited and R. Balki, once again come together for the filmmaker’s ambitious venture, Shamitabh. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan in lead roles, the film is slated to release on February 6th, 2015. “Shamitabh is an exciting collaboration with Balki whose films feature contemporary themes with strong content and fabulous casting. With this film, we wish to present a heartwarming story that will entertain fans and audiences with an unforgettable experience,” says Sunil Lulla of Eros.
“This film is my third collaboration with Eros. They had partnered me in Cheeni Kum, English Vinglish and now Shamitabh. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Radhakrishnan Damani, Abhishek Bachchan, Gauri and myself are glad to have Eros as the co producer on this project too. The film couldn’t have got a better marketing and distribution team to back it,” says R. Balki. With Eros on board, Dhanush’s second 100-crore film (after Raanjhanaa) is not impossible.
