Actor Dhanush, who’ll be seen alongside Amitabh Bachchan in R. Balki’s ‘Shamitabh’, recently shocked everyone. Apparently, the actor was asked if he would like to act in any of Amitabh Bachchan’s remake films, to which Dhanush said, “I will definitely not do a film of his because I can’t carry it. I am not qualified enough to do his films. As far as his films are concerned, I just loved Sholay and Deewaar.”
It’s not that ‘Shamitabh’ actor Dhanush doesn’t love Amitabh Bachchan’s films. He, like any other person, is a huge Big B fan but says he is just not that qualified or talented enough to act in legendary actor Amitabh’s films. The actor went further on and explained how he is still in the initial stage, ”I am still learning the language. It will take time. I try talking to my friends and relatives in Hindi. They keep correcting me. I am running around and planning to take tuition,” Dhanush explained.
In director R. Balki’s ‘Shamitabh’, Big B plays a drunkard film industry veteran, and when Amitabh and Dhanush finally meet, the journey of “Shamitabh” begins, and also their hidden rivalry. The film also features Akshara Haasan. Matter of fact, the actress will be making her Bollywood debut with the film this year. ‘Shamitabh’ is set to hit theatres on February 6, 2013.
