MUMBAI: Seventy five films for a film maker is a landmark occasion and it becomes special if the director gets to work with that one actor he has desired to work with.
Director Priyadarshan’s 75th film will be Red Chillies Entertainment’s Billu (earlier known as Billu Barber).
Priyadarshan had revealed, "I have always wanted to work with Shah Rukh Khan. And can you believe my luck that my 75th film is with him. And to make it even special he is also producing it."
Khan is doing a special role in Billu, where he plays a superstar. The film is a story of two childhood friends, played by Irrfan Khan, who is a barber and the other by Khan. Billu was initially called Billu Barber but because of the protests from members of the salon and beauty parlour association, the Barber from Billu Barber has been dropped.
The film releases on 13 February.
