Bachchan to shoot in Bhutan for Talismaan

After Aladdin, Big B will be seen in yet another fantasy film “Talismaan”. The film will go on the floors by the end of 2009 and the shooting will take place in Bhutan jungles.

We spoke to our source from the production house,

“Big B’s look is going to be very different from all other previous looks. In this film he plays the role of warrior. The film is based on the Hindi novel story “Chandrakanta”. The only reason of shooting in Bhutan is that this film is different and so Bhutan’s geography is also quite different, so we are going to erect a huge set in Bhutan and also in Mumbai. This film is in the pre-[ruction stage and it requires a lot of research. We are just waiting for the recession to end and once its done we would be releasing the film by the end of 2009″

Further our source told us,” At present Vidhu Vinod Chopra is busy with 3 Idiots and once the film is wrapped, Talisman work will go on the floors. Because of the huge budget and stars involved like Amitabh, Aishwarya and Sanjat Dutt it has to be postponed. Aishwarya is playing the character of a princess to Abhisekh while Sanjay Dutt is playing a negative character. As far as Aishwarya’s look is concerned, its not decided yet. But the character portrayed of Chandrakanta is going to be charismatic and physically strong. After Jodha Akhbar, Ash would again be seen doing sword fighting. She isn’t confirmed and talks are also going on with Deepika Padukone also. But again 90%, Ash would be doing the role.”

Talisman promo shoot with Amitabh Bachchan was done last year only. It is a love story inspired by the epic novel, Chandrakanta, which is a mixer of war, love, greedy for power. The film is directed by Ram Madwani with Big B in a white costume with long white hair-locks, riding a white horse and guiding a battalion of soldiers. One vertical half of his face is covered with a mask and his look is similar to that of “Lord of the rings…” -Sampurn Media
