Big B to play Pak lawyer in Sarabjit Singh's biopic
ENI Bureau New Delhi: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is all set to play a Pakistani lawyer in Sarajbit Singh's biopic which will be produced by Subhash Ghai. Sonakshi Sinha will be apparently seen playing Sarabjit’s sister.
The news was confirmed by Ghai, who said: "Yes, we are in talks with Amitabh, the role of the lawyer is extremely important to the script."
If all goes well, then it would be interesting to see Ghai and Big B working together after almost 25 years. The two were not on talking terms after Ghai's film Devaa, in which Big B was playing the lead role, was shelved due to creative differences. Things got worse between the two when Big B sported the same look for Khuda Gawah, as Ghai had planned for him in Devaa.
The biopic is based on Sarabjit Singh, the Indian prisoner in Pakistan, who died in May this year after being attacked in jail.
