Will Jr Bachchan choose Anurag Basu’s film over Anees Bazmee’s next?

Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan has been offered two films at a same time, the actor is said to be in talks with Anurag Basu for Life In A Metro‘s second part and Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti. While buzz is that he has Bazmee’s film with John Abraham, there is a possibility that he might have to choose one over the other.

“Abhishek is returning on the screen after two years with Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan next month. He has been constantly meeting different filmmakers these days. After signing the second film with Anurag Kashyap (Gulab Jamun), he has also been offered Basu’s Life In A Metro 2 and Bazmee’s film. He liked Anurag Basu’s script and if things go well then he might do it. But on the other hand Bazmee’s film is likely to start around the same time so he will have to adjust his dates if he agrees to do both the films or let go of one project,” says a source.

In recent interviews the actor confirmed that he will be doing Kashyap’s Gulab Jamun with wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan but did not confirm about Basu’s film. It is said that the actor will not be paired with Kareena Kapoor Khan in the film and rumour suggests that Ileana D’ Cruz will be part of the project.

However the makers are yet to make an official announcement on the casting. Recently, Basu too informed that he is still working on the cast and has not finalised anyone for the film. Apart from Kareena, Abhishek and Ileana, Rajkummar Rao too is likely to be part of the film.
