In addition to Akshara Hassan, another southern actor is making her entry in Bollywood with the Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Shamitabh’. Abhinaya, who made her mark with her debut film in Tamil ‘Naadodigal’ is playing a vital character in the film. She recently shot for the film in Mumbai with her co-stars Akshara Hassan and Dhanush.
Apparently, the film’s makers decided to bring her on board after watching her work in Tamil films. Her father has informed the media, “She shot with Dhanush and Akshara recently in Mumbai. She is essaying a very crucial role in it. We came to know that she got selected due to her performance in Tamil films. She has completed a few days of shoot for the film and will again resume shooting for a song with Dhanush in the coming weeks.” So far Abhinaya has worked in 20 films in South Indian industries in a career spanning five years.
The film is being directed by noted filmmaker R.Balki. The film has drawn attention because of its unique star cast led by megastar Amitabh Bachchan and its unusual title. Big B has said that the meaning of the title will only be cleared after watching the film.
