Talk about some exciting news! Kangana Ranaut and Amitabh Bachchan in Pad Man director's next?

Now that’s like one casting coup, isn’t it? If the latest buzz is anything to go by the Kangana Ranaut and Amitabh Bachchan might soon collaborate for a film together. R Balki, who is currently gearing up for his big release Pad Man, in in talks with the two for his next that revolves around a woman who is differently-abled. Reveals a source in interaction with Mid Day,  “Kangana had already been roped in for the Arunima Sinha (the first Indian amputee to scale Mount Everest) biopic. But the film showed no signs of kick-starting. So when Balki offered her this project, she was keen to come on board. The film revolves around a woman who is left handicapped after a freak accident, and eventually reclaims her life. Bachchan will be seen as her mentor, who will inspire her to rise against all odds.”

Considering Kangana’s amazing versatility as an actor, it’ll be interesting to see her pulling off such a challenging role on screen; that too opposite the legend Amitabh Bachchan. As the source added, “Kangana will require a two-month-long prep to adapt to the body language of a differently-abled person. The actors are expected to sign the contracts next week and an official announcement will be made later this month.”

Balki will begin pre-production on this untitled venture, as soon as Pad Man hits theatres on January 25. The director intends to begin shooting for this film only after Kangana wraps up her film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and Bachchan gets done with Thugs Of Hindostan and 102 Not Out.

Let’s not forget how much Amitabh admires Kangana as he had once mentioned, “I am a big admirer of Kangana Ranaut. She is a wonderful actor.” While Kangana too has time and again asserted that Big B is one of the few actors whom she idolises the most, in the industry.
