The director confirmed the news and told the tabloid, “When you get an actor like Amitabh Bachchan, half your battle is won as he’s every director’s delight and I’m extremely excited to direct him. Also, I have been trying to work with Taapsee for a while.
This is the perfect story to collaborate with her on. My excitement is doubled now that the film is being produced by SRK. I couldn’t have asked for a better team and now it is time for work.”
Sujoy Ghosh’s crime thriller is an adaptation of the Spanish film The Invisible Guest (2014).
He told that both SRK and Amitabh like the idea of the film. Sujoy states, “I thought it was superlative material for AB Sir and pitched it to him. Taapsee was already on board, SRK also loved the source material and the collaboration happened seamlessly.”
He added, “This is my first film with Taapsee and after the shoot finishes, I’ll get her some mental help. AB sir is cool, the coolest of them all.”
When quizzed if SRK will make an appearance in the film, Sujoy Ghosh answered, “SRK is the producer but like hell I am going to stop him from making an appearance.”
