Umesh Shukla To Direct Abhishek Bachchan Next

Director Umesh Shukla, who tasted immense success with his religious satire OMG Oh My God! starring Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar, is gearing up for another socially relevant comedy and sources claim that this film will star Abhishek Bachchan.

 

Confirming the news, Shukla said that he met Abhishek and narrated the script to him, following which, Bachchan Jr showed interest in working on the project. Shukla plans to meet the Bluff Master once again after finalizing the script and making a proper draft. Though Shukla refused to divulge much about this project, he did admit that the film will be a comedy with a social message, very much like OMG.

 

Based on a Hindi play 'Kishan v/s Kanhaiya', OMG Oh My God revolved around a cynical atheist, who files a case against God after suffering losses to his business following an earthquake.
