Balki’s Amitabh – Abhishek starrer Pa begins shoot in March


MUMBAI: AB Corp is all set to start shooting its film, Pa under the direction of Balki. The director, who taught Amitabh Bachchan the art of subtle romance in his first film – Cheeni Kum, is gung ho to start his second film with the father and son combination.

Balki confirmed, "Pa will start its first schedule on 2 March in Mumbai. Post that, we will shift our location to North India. There are several places that we have in mind. And once that is completed, we move out of the country to shoot some key scenes. The entire schedule will be of 25 days. For the first schedule we will be shooting with both Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan."

Vidya Balan is also part of the cast. Abhishek Bachchan will take a short breather after the international promotions for his Delhi 6, which saw him travel to New York and Dubai. The senior Bachchan was also in New York earlier in the month to celebrate Abhi’s birthday.

Pa is the endearment that Abhishek calls his father. Balki had most probably heard the interaction between the father and son and has used it for the premise of his film. Balki said, "It is too early to talk about my film. In due course of time, I will let you know. Let me get the first schedule started."
