A week after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan confirmed to mid-day that she will be teaming up with husband Abhishek Bachchan for Gulab Jamun, looks like producer Anurag Kashyap has pulled off another casting coup. Rumours are rife that Amitabh Bachchan is the latest to join the cast of the Sarvesh Mewara-directed venture.
Turns out, Gulab Jamun is a slice-of-life film that tells the story of a three-generation family, with Bachchan representing the first generation. A source reveals, "After initiating talks with Abhishek and Ash, the makers had given a narration to Big B last year, following which he had suggested a few tweaks to the script. It was after the wrap-up of Manmarziyan last month that conversation around this film started again. Anurag reached out to Big B with the reworked script. If all goes as planned, he will be on board soon. It is yet unknown whether he will be playing a father to Abhishek or Aishwarya."
The trio was last seen in Sarkar Raj (2008) together.
