This is going to be an interesting film. Three powerful actors – Vidya Balan, Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in one frame.
In a new project, a suspense thriller ‘TE3N’, to be helmed by Ribhu Dasgupta, Vidya Balan will be seen in a special cameo which will star Big B and Nawazuddin. The film will be shot entirely in Kolkata and rolls in November.
A Mumbai Mirror report quoted Sujoy Ghosh, the creative producer, reveals that it originated from Bachchan. “One day, we were chatting with sir and Ribhu sketched out the idea to him. He reacted instantly saying he was doing the film. When we told him we didn’t even have a script, he instructed us to write one. He agreed to the film on the basis of just a thought.”
While it was an easy yes from Nawaz’s side, the makers were unable to decide whom to take for this special role. The daily quoted Sujoy saying, “We were on tenterhooks wondering if it would be a “yes” or “no,” but fortunately for us, Vidya was challenged by this special appearance pivotal to the plot and was quickly won over. This is the first time the three actors will be seen together in a film and it’s an exciting casting.”
The makers are hoping to wrap up the shooting by early January and target a mid-2016 release.
