Its official Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amitabh Bachchan to clash in Sujoy Ghosh’s TE3N!

It took one decade for Star of Millennium Amitabh Bachchan to act opposite his dream actor thespian Dilip Kumar, when the duo shared screen in Ramesh Sippy’s SHAKTI (1982).

Incidentally it has taken over two decades for the rising star of Bollywood Nawazuddin Siddiqui to act opposite his beloved actor Amitabh Bachchan. The two would be seen clashing in Sujoy Ghosh produced upcoming film TE3N! The other highlight of the film is that it also features Vidya Balan in a pivotal role. 

Elated at the announcement that he has been cast opposite Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said he considers himself fortunate to be sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh Bachchan.


He added, “"I have always had a dream of working with Mr Amitabh Bachchan. It is a coincidence that I am getting to work with such a big actor in my next film. I consider myself fortunate for having got this opportunity.” 

What is most amazing is that Amitabh Bachchan himself had recommended Sujoy Ghosh to cast Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role when he heard the script. 

Sunjoy briefing media said, “When I narrated a brief draft of the story to Bachchan sir, he was overwhelmed by the plot and immediately gave his nod for the film and suggested me to cast Nawazuddin Siddiqui opposite him stating that he is a great actor and he wished to act opposite him.” 

It may be noted recently Amitabh Bachchan had acted opposite another brilliant actor Irrfan Khan in PIKU. Incidentally like PIKU, Sujoy Ghosh’s TE3N is also based in Kolkata. It looks into the woes of three common men residing in Kolkata. Hence director Ribhu Dasgupta plans the shooting in the city. 

He is planning to wrap up the shoot schedule by the end of January 2016 and is looking for a mid-2016 release.

Arnold Schwarzenegger breaks Rajinikanth’s fee record; will he also score over him in acting in the film ENTHIRAN 2?

Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie ENTHIRAN 2 (ROBOT -2 in Hindi) has been in news ever since filmmaker Shanker announced the sequel to his 2010 blockbuster ENTHIRAN. 

However with Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger joining the crew the movie has garnered not just publicity in Indian media but even the International media is going gaga over the news and the reports are grabbing eyeballs. 

Truly by signing Arnold Schwarzenegger as the main villain in ENTHIRAN 2 Shanker has, beyond doubt, made the movie an International project. 

In fact it won’t be wrong to say ENTHIRAN 2 would be India’s first film to have a genuine International appeal because till date no Indian film (Including Bollywood) has ever cast a foreign actor of repute as Arnold Schwarzenegger in a full-fledged role.


But was it easy to hire Arnold Schwarzenegger in ENTHIRAN 2? Well it is has been a tough nut to crack because if reports are to be believed producers Lyca International have vouched a whooping Rs 1 crore and agreed to all the demands of Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the character. 

Thus with a fees as high as Rs 1 Crore, Arnold Schwarzenegger has written a new history in the annals of not only Indian cinema but Asian cinema.

Prior to him it was Rajinikanth who held the highest paid actor record in Asia when he charged an enormous amount of Rs 60 Crore for LINGAA. 

Thus with Arnold Schwarzenegger charging Rs 100 crore he has broken Rajinikanth’s record in the fee department. 

Now let’s wait and see will Arnold Schwarzenegger be able to out beat Rajinikanth in acting department in the film ENTHIRAN 2? 

According to Shaker he has written an equally powerful role of the villain hence he wished to cast Aamir Khan as the antagonist but he declined. Hence Arnold Schwarzenegger has a tailor made role but will he be able to out beat the veteran superstar Rajinikanth as Amjad khan did as the deadly Gabbar Singh in SHOLAY and stood out beating giants of Bollywood actors like Sanjeev Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra????
