Mrs B back on the big screenShe played her son Abhishek Bachchan’s mother in Goldie Behl’s Drona in 2008. And now, after four years, Jaya Bachchan is ready to return to the big screen. This time with Rituparno Ghosh’s Taak Jhaank, a satire about magic surrealism.
Though Amitabh and son Abhishek have worked with the award-winning filmmaker in The Last Lear and Antar Mahal respectively, this will be Jaya’s first with Ghosh.
Apart from starring in Ghosh’s directorial venture, Jaya will also come together with Naseeruddin Shah for the first time in her career spanning almost 50 years with Taak Jhaank.
Distributor Sunil Bohra, who acquired the rights for the film told Media, “Jayaji has not been seen on screen for a long time. She has never done a film with Naseer Saab before. Considering they share similar cinematic sensibilities, I find that very strange.”
Talking about his newly- acquired project, Bohra added, “I haven’t seen any Rituparno Ghosh film earlier. But I just loved Taak Jhaank.” Bohra also said that he wants to promote this film in a big way for its April release.
