||Amitabh Bachchan to play
Wanting Bachchan to play
the artistic genius in his next film that would be titled Thinking Of Him,
Cesar said, "We have got financial backing from an Argentinean and we plan
to approach the veteran actor to essay the role."
Though the film's script
is ready, the project would be delayed and won't release in time for Rabindranath
Tagore's 150th birth centenary this year, as the Argentinean had planned.
||If all goes well, Amitabh
Bachchan might soon have a brush with Bengali. Argentinian filmmaker Pablo
Cesar is set to bring Rabindranath Tagore’s encounter with Argentine writer
Victoria Ocampo on the big screen, and wants the actor to play the role
of the Nobel Laureate.
A part of the film would
touch the association of Rabindranath Tagore with Victoria Ocampo, a well-known
Argentinean writer. It is believed that Tagore's stint in Argentina revolved
mostly around a personal encounter with Ocampo that reflected in his creative
work and in the work of Ocampo herself. Apparently, the famous Rabindranath
Tagore song, Ogo bideshini… was written keeping her in mind.
The film would be in the
Bengali dialect and will be shot in Kolkata, Shantiniketan and Sunderban.
Rabindranath Tagore's interactions with Victoria Ocampo would be in Spanish,
it is understood.
