After the international success of the Golmaal franchise, comedy maestro Rohit Shetty and Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn team up once again to create mayhem in the romantic comedy film Bol Bachchan, and this time real life ‘Bachchan’ – Abhishek comes along for the ride too.
The film will mark Abhishek Bachchan’s first experience of carrying out a double role, and is said to be inspired by the 1979 classic movie Golmaal.
Devgn plays the role of gangster don Prithviraj Raghuvanshi, who has a decidedly bold dress sense, comical mannerisms and a knack of attempting to speak English with entertainment results. On the other hand, Bachchan portrays two contrasting characters; one is a confident, macho, moustached conman and the other an effeminate sidekick, complete with magenta floral shirt and a net vest – amusing antics, comic confusion and mischief can only ensue!
Bol Bachchan boasts some of Bollywood’s biggest star talents, including a song cameo by film legend Amitabh Bachchan. The lead actors are joined by Bollywood beauties Asin Thottumkal (Ready, Ghajini) and Prachi Desai (Rock On, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai) and comedy stars Krushna Abhishek, Neeraj Vora and Archana Puran Singh. The film features veteran Asrani of Bollywood Western fame, Sholay.
The soundtrack has songs by talented singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya and the music powerhouse duo Ajay-Atul.
Bol Bachchan is set for release on 6th July 2012 by Twentieth Century Fox.
