Beware! Amitabh Bachchan is all set to go Grrr in Priyadarshan's next. The Shehenshah of Bollywood would appear in the role of Jim Corbett, the fearless hunter and conservationist, in Priyan's next, Grrr based on man-eating tigers.

“I’m a big admirer of Jim Corbett and a huge fan of Amitji. It’s only natural that I bring the two together when I can", Priyadarshan tells Mumbai Mirror.

Grrr will be about the man-eating tigers of the Sunderbans. It’ll belong to the same genre as Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. Grrr is my first attempt at making a thriller,” adds the director.

But Priyadarshan is quick to add that he won't be shooting in Sunderbans for he doesn't want to jeopardise his unit's life.

They will be shooting with animatronics (robots that look like animals), and there wouldn't be any real tigers.
