Umesh Shukla working on a comedy project with Abhishek Bachchan
Umesh Shukla, who displayed his mettle as a director with the Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal starrer Oh My God, I set to work on a comedy project with actor Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.
Elaborating on the same, the director averred, "I am doing a film with Abhishek. I have met and narrated him the story line in short. Having liked it, he showed his interest being a part of it. I am still working on my script and will meet him again once I am ready with a proper draft."
Oh My God had Paresh Rawal playing the role of an atheist while Akshay Kumar was seen in a modern day avatar of Lord Krishna. The film was a satirical-comedy-drama on religion and did well at the box office after its release on 28 September last year (2012).
This time again, Shukla is going to have a social element in the film. He said that he couldn’t talk about the film right now as he was still working on the story. “All I can say that it will be of social relevance splashed with comedy."
The film is likely to be backed by Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series Bhushan Kumar and Shyam Bajaj.
The film is likely to go on floors sometime this year (2013).
Meanwhile, Umesh has temporarily put on the backburner of making a film on scams and share market that was reported earlier.
