Director R Balakrishnan and superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who gave two unconventional hits — Cheeni Kam and Paa — will now team up for a 15-minute film celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema.
While details are yet to be finalised, it is understood that PVR Cinemas has commissioned eight filmmakers to make 15-minute films which would all be released as one feature film in 2013, when Indian cinema celebrates 100 years of existence.
Balki will be the first director to start the project. “Doing a short film with Amitji would be a special challenge. We’ve done ads and two feature films together. Now let’s see what I can do with Amitji in the 15 minutes,” said Balki.
