The crime thriller drama ‘Badla’ will reunite Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu after the huge success of critically acclaimed 2016 courtroom drama ‘Pink’.
A close source to the development has revealed that Bachchan essays a role of lawyer in ‘Badla’, helmed by Sujoy Ghosh. It’s a murder mystery. And the entire shooting of the film took place in Scotland.
Interestingly, Ghosh’s upcoming directorial venture is an official remake of the 2016 Spanish thriller ‘Contratiempo’ (The Invisible Guest), helmed by Oriol Paulo. In the Spanish film, the story revolves around a businessman, who is accused of killing his lover. And then, as he revisits the murder with his defense attorney, several twists emerge.
‘Badla’ is produced by Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s production Red Chilies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainments. Apart from Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, the film also stars Ali Fazal.
This is the fourth time Amitabh Bachchan is collaborating with director Sujoy Ghosh. The duo has previously worked in the films like ‘TE3N’, ‘Kahaani’ and ‘Aladin’.
Sujoy Ghosh’s last venture was ‘Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh’ (2016), a sequel of Vidya Balan starrer ‘Kahaani’ (2012). He is also busy directing a Netflix series ‘Typewriter’, a horror venture.
Meanwhile, Bachchan is currently busy with Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ where Big B will be seen alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy among others.
