Film-maker R Balki has chosen a rather interesting title for his next directorial. The film, starring

Amitabh Bachchan

in the lead, is called Shamitabh.

"We are happy to announce that the film is titled Shamitabh. We are halfway through the shoot of the film, so I will finish that and then talk more about it. Right now, I’m enjoying watching the lethal combo of the intensity of Amitabh Bachchan, the intelligence of Dhanush, and the innocence of Akshara (Haasan)" says Balki, whose last two directorials, Cheeni Kum (2007) and Paa (2009), also featured Bachchan in lead.
