After hit Golmaal series, Rohit Shetty is directing Bol Bachchan, which is inspired by the 1979 comic flick, Gol Maal. The filmmaker is out with a digital poster of the film.
It features Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan in his two avatars. Abhishek Bachchan is expected to play the role of Ram Prasad, essayed by Amol Palekar in the original and Ajay Devgn will be seen as Bhawani Shankar (Utpal Dutt). Its official trailer got released on May 24 and has got a good response. Prachi Desai and Asin will also feature in the comedy film. Amitabh Bachchan, along with son Abhishek and Ajay Devgn, has shot a song for Bol Bachchan, sparking off speculation that the track was a retake of one of his chartbusters from Amar Akbar Anthony (1977). However, he refutes the rumour. "No, we most certainly did not shoot My Name is Anthony Gonsalves… We only shot the title track for Bol Bachchan which has an introduction shot of me emerging from an egg and blabbering English gibberish, much the Anthony song, before getting on with the rest of the song," he clarifies. The film will release on July 6. VIDEO
