R Balki has sworn he will never direct a film without Amitabh Bachchan in it. From his directorial debut Cheeni Kum to his last-released directorial Padman in 2018, the senior Bachchan has been a part of every film of R Balki.
It therefore comes as no surprise to know that Mr Bachchan is in Balki’s new underproduction directorial Ghoomer which stars Saiyami Kher as a cricket player and Abhishek Bachchan as her coach.
Shabana Azmi ,working for the first time with Balki, stars as Saiyami’s cricket-loving grandmother.
And now Balki’s lucky mascot Amitabh Bachchan has joined the cast of Ghoomer as a cricket commentator.
Says Balki, “I can’t make a film without Mr Bachchan in it. It could be just passing shot, or it could be a full-length role. But he must be in every film I direct.”
This film brings Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan together in a Balki film for the second time after ronPaa.
