Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who was last seen in Housefull 3 with Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh, is all set to begin shooting for his next film, Arrest by the end of this month. The actor will be reuniting with Ram Gopal Varma after their successful stint in Sarkar Raj.
Interestingly, the shoot for the movie was to begin on April 10 but due to certain changes in the script and the delay in Amitabh Bachchan starrer Sarkar 3, the movie got postponed. Ramu is occupied with the post-production and the release of Sarkar 3 which is set to hit the theatres next week.
In Arrest, Abhishek Bachchan is reportedly playing the role of encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma.
Source close to the film informed a daily, “The film was supposed to go on floors last month but it was delayed a bit because of changes in the script. Now everything has been locked and we will begin shooting for the film by the end of this month.”
The movie is expected to release sometime next year. However, an official announcement is awaited.
Apart from Arrest, Abhishek Bachchan has reportedly also signed Prabhudheva’s Lefty. The movie’s writer Kona Venkat, who has written the popular film Ready, confirmed the same through a tweet few days back. Abhishek is rumoured to star in a movie titled Gulab Jamun along with wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He also has a film with Irrfan Khan that would be produced by Ronnie Screwvala. Reportedly, Abhishek has also been offered the role of Sahir Ludhianvi opposite Priyanka Chopra in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next. And if reports are to be believed, then Bachchan will be the lead in Rohit Roy’s next directorial that may be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, there is nothing official about any of these films!
