After wrapping up the eighth edition of game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC), megastar Amitabh Bachchan now awaits the “verdict of masses” on his forthcoming films set for a 2015 release.
The 72-year-old is currently shooting for three projects – ‘Shamitabh’, ‘Piku’ and ‘Wazir’. Director R Balakrishnan, fondly called Balki, is helming ‘Shamitabh’ that also features Dhanush and marks the Bollywood debut of southern superstar actor Kamal Haasan’s daughter Akshara. Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’ will see Amitabh along with Deepika Padukone and Irrfan, while ‘Wazir’ is Bejoy Nambiar’s directorial venture, which is written and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film also stars Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hyadri.

“All to be released by the year of 2015…and I await the verdict, as do many that are involved in it, when it shall reach the masses… the masses … the final answer, the final question, the final outcome…”
