Abhishek Bachchan in Mere Apne
Mumbai: Umesh Shukla who had his share of success in his very first flick “OMG: Oh My God!” is ready to do his next project “Mere Apne” which has Abhishek Bachchan in lead role. It is a family based movie said the director. Within four weeks, they will get the dates of Abhi and shooting will begin soon after that. The schedule will be spanning 60 days and will be shot at one go.
Shooting locations are in Himachal Pradesh, London and Sikkim. In 1971 a movie had the same title as of this film. But then Shukla has stated that this new film is not a remake of the 1971 movie. He is very thrilled to start shooting for the flick, the film is based on family and as lot of humor quotient in it.
The film maker has full confidence in Abhi and says only he can do full justice to the character. While Shukla was scripting the flick, he had only Abhishek in mind. No one else than Abhi can suit in the role best. However the rest of the cast has not yet been locked. It will take some more time to finalise the rest of the casting says the director.
