Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan may play a Pakistani lawyer in a forthcoming biopic on Sarabjit Singh.
Producer of the film Subhash Ghai is reportedly eager to rope in Bachchan for the ‘extremely important’ role.
“Yes, we are in talks with Amitabh, the role of the lawyer is extremely important to the script,” Ghai told media.
In the biopic, ‘Dabangg’ actress Sonakshi Sinha will play Sarabjit’s sister.
“Sonakshi has started doing her research and is gearing up for the look test. The role of the lawyer is the backbone of the narration and Bachchan is currently going through the script,” according to sources.
In 1987 the two tried to work together for the film ‘Devaa’, but the project was shelved reportedly due to the creative differences between them.
