Sooraj Barjatya’s film Oonchai came in the news early this year when it was reported that Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Neena Gupta, and Parineeti Chopra have been brought on board. It is now reported that two additional senior actors have been added.
Oonchai’s makers have added Danny Denzongpa to the cast. The film is scheduled to open on floors in the next month. According to reports, the first schedule will be shot in Nepal. The team will also film in Mumbai and Delhi.
Oonchai tells the story of four friends who are 60+. The four friends will be played by Amitabh, Boman Irani and Anupam Kher. According to reports, the makers plan to release the film in 2022. However, they will complete shooting by March 2022.
Boman Irani stated that the film was discussed at MayDay earlier in an interview. “I met Mr. Bachchan at MayDay sets and he invited me to join the film. I was then called by Mr. Kher to inquire why you were taking so long. He asked me to come on board. That’s it, when Mr. Bachchan or Mr. Kher tell you this. Irani said that it was a loving space.
This film will be Amitabh Bachchan’s first collaboration with Sooraj Barjatya, even though both have been in the business for decades.
Amitabh Bachchan hosts the 13th season, which is currently airing on Kaun Banega Crorepati. He is currently working on Vikas Bahl’s directorial Goodbye. Neena Gupta and Rashmika Mandana star in the film. Pavail Gulati and Elli Avram also star in it. Jhund, Brahmastra and MayDay are just a few of the other projects that the megastar has in his pipeline. Deepika Padukone will star with him in the Indian adaptation Nancy Meyers’s Hollywood movie The Intern (2015).
