Amitabh is all set to play the character of a judge in the much-hyped upcoming courtroom drama by Rumi Jaffrey called Khel.

Amitabh and Emraan Hashmi have signed for Khel which is predominantly a courtroom drama directed by Rumi Jaffrey whose earlier contribution was God Tussi Great Ho, Rumi will be directing the film that is all set to star Saurabh Shukla and Anu Kapoor as well. The film is supposed to go on the floors by the middle of this year.

Emraan Hashmi would be getting his first opportunity to work with the celebrated superstar of Bollywood and it is like a wish come true for him to share the same screen space with the undisputed Bollywood legend himself. Recently, Mr. Bachchan announced his involvement in the upcoming film by sharing a photograph of himself along with Emraan Hashmi and the producers and director of the film. For Amitabh, it was a fulfillment of a long-standing commitment to Anand Pandit. The film is all set to release on February 21, 2020.

As per Bollywood latest news, Emraan Hashmi apparently shared the same photo on Instagram and he incorporated this amazing caption into Instagram post “Super Excited to share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan sir in Anand Pandit’s next production venture, directed by Rumi Jaffery!’

After a seven-year-long break from the Bollywood circuit, Rumi Jaffrey, the writer of movies such as Hero no.1, Coolie No. 1, and Chalte Chalte is making a grand comeback to direction with this thriller featuring Emraan Hashmi and Amitabh Bachchan. Moreover, Saurabh Shukla and Anu Kapoor are all set to play key roles in the movie.

Rumi’s last directional ventures were Gali Gali Chor Hai starring Mugdha Godse and Akshaye Khanna. His other notable releases were God Tussi Great Ho and Life Partner. Mr. Bacchan portrayed God in God Tussi Great Ho, Rumi’s debut film. The film will go on the floors on May 13. The previously untitled film is now called Khel as it is a tale with too many twists and turns. Anu Kapoor and Saurabh have earlier partnered in Jolly LLB 2 alongside Akshay Kumar who was the film’s hero.

Anu played a lawyer and Saurabh had played the judge. Amitabh and Hashmi would be working in a movie the very first time.  Amitabh’s last release was Badla that hit the theatre last month while Emraan’s last release was Why Cheat India. Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming releases are Brahmastra by Ayan Mukherji, Jhund by Nagraj Manjule and even the Telegu movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Emraan’s last movie was Why Cheat India by Soumik Sen where he has co-starred with Snighadeep Chatterjee and Shreya Dhanwanthary. Emraan Hashmi’s next film would be Murder 4, basically a murder thriller.


Rumi Jaffrey is expecting a wonderful response from the audience and the film fraternity as the movie’s cast includes one of the top Bollywood actors and a truly veteran producer and they have given their 100 percent to the movie to give the audience an amazing experience.
