Big B set to feature in Malayalam film Kandahar

Big B set to feature in Malayalam film 'Kandahar'

Kochi, Feb 8 (IANS) Director Major Ravi says that Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has given his nod for his Malayalam film "Kandahar", a film about plane hijacking that will also star veteran Mohanlal.

The news came when Big B had made a short visit to the city Sunday.

Speaking to reporters, Ravi, a former NSG commando who had directed two films featuring Mohanlal, said that he is just trying to imagine how the two greats would come in one single frame. "It is great feeling when I think of that," he said.

Amitabh will be seen as the father of a passenger on the ill-fated plane that has been hijacked and Mohanlal will play a commando.

The film is inspired by the hijacking of Indian Airlines flight IC-814 in 1999. It was hijacked while on its way from Kathmandu to New Delhi on Christmas eve by five Pakistani militants and was forced to land in three different airports - Amritsar, Lahore, and Dubai - before spending a week on the tarmac in Kandahar with 186 hostages on board.

This is Ravi's fourth film after "Keerthichakara" and "Kuruskshetra", both featuring Mohanlal, and "Mission 90 Days", which told the real story of Ravi who tracked down the killers of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Mammootty played Ravi's role in the film.

"Khandahar" will be shot in Delhi, Nepal besides Kerala.

Mumbai's health is fine: Amitabh Bachchan

Kochi, Feb 7 (IANS) Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who arrived on a visit here Sunday, said Mumbai, where he has lived for over four decades, is "fine" and healthy.

"Mumbai's health is fine," Bachchan replied at a function here when reporters asked him about the recent Shiv Sena activities that have triggered tensions in the city.

"Please, I have come here to your state for a good thing, to launch a health programme," Amitabh Bachchan said.

This led to the next question that the query was relevant because it concerned the health of Mumbai, prompting his response.

Bachchan was in the city to launch a health project of the Resul Pookutty Foundation and a private hospital which will treat the poor and needy.

He also donated Rs.11 lakh to the foundation.
