Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is slated to play a pickpocket's victim in a new film that will focus on the tragic consequences of what seems like a petty crime.

Pocketmaar, to be produced by filmmaker Ravi Chopra, is the story of a man who is robbed while carrying money to stave off a personal crisis. <b1>

"What may be seen as a small crime can have a shattering effect on the victim," said Chopra. "The focus of the film will be on the effect the crime has on the man's life."

"(It) will try and show that a crime is a crime - there's no big crime or small crime."

Chopra said Bachchan is keen to do the film and shooting for Pocketmaar could begin once the actor "overcomes the loss of his mother" who died last month.
