Abhishek, Aishwarya and Vivek to star in Tansen!
Call it a casting coup or a thunder of sorts but Bollywood director Satish Kaushik and Rajshri Productions have made the impossible possible!
The latest buzz has it that 'Tansen', touted to be one of the costliest Hindi films to be ever made, will star Abhishek, Aishwarya, Anil Kapoor and none other than Vivek Oberoi.
‘Tansen’ is said to be based on the life of the famous Mughal court singer by the same name and will see Abhishek playing the lead role.
The much talked about film is set to be shot in Bangkok first and then at other international locations such as Australia and New Zealand. The shooting of the flick is reported to be beginning from next month itself.
Incidentally, the last film based on musician-singer prodigy Tansen dates back to pre independence era in 1943, when KL Saigal played the role of Tansen and eternalised it with his impressive screen presence and vocals in Jayanti Desai directed film.
In today’s scenario, the only singer who acts is Himesh Reshammiya and news has it that Kaushik did consider Himesh for the project but Barjatyas, who are known as sticklers to custom, shot down the idea. With this, the mantle fell on the shoulders of junior Bachchan – Abhishek.
Explaining Abhishek as the final choice for Tansen, Satish said, “He has the look and intensity. He also has the dialogue delivery of his father. And we do need a Tansen who thinks in Hindi and talks the language fluently.”
