If the title of R Balki's work-in-progress film intrigued you, the first look is sure to catch your attention.
A poster of Shamitabh has just been released and features the lead actors Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush in opera-style jackets with their names in lights across an old-fashioned cinema hoarding. However, it doesn't read as you'd expect it to but in a jumble of sorts in which the last two letters of 'Dhanush' and Mr Bachchan's entire first name make up the title of the film: Dhanu-SHAMITABH-Bachchan.
An 'audio poster' featuring Big B has also been released.
In the 'audio poster,' a reporter is heard asking Mr Shamitabh when his next "picture will release". A drunken Shamitabh (played by Big B) answers, "When the audio and video get mixed, how you can call it a picture?" He adds, "It's not a picture, but a mixture."
The film also stars Tamil actor Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara, who will make her Bollywood debut with the film. R Balki previously directed Mr Bachchan in Cheeni Kum.
