After playing a 13-year-old energetic kid in Balki's Paa, Amitabh Bachchan is reportedly set to step into the shoes of Rabindranath Tagore, India's first Nobel laureate.

The movie talks about the life of Tagore after he won the Nobel Prize. It also touches upon his life at Shantiniketan.

The movie will be directed by Ujjvwal Chatterji of Escape From Taliban fame.

To be produced by Kirshnedu Sen, the movie's script, dialogues and lyrics would be penned by Javed Akhtar.

The movie will reportedly also talk about the famous students of Shantiniketan like Indira Gandhi and Satyajit Ray.

We wonder if any roles would be left unplayed by Mr Bachchan. Waiting for more...
