Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan and Anil Kapoor – what a powerful starcast, you will say. This is exactly what director-writer Raj Kumar Santoshi said when he launched his latest project, Power, starring these Bollywood superstars.
Mr. Bachchan, Sanjay, Ajay, Anil and the director were all present at the mahurat of Power at J.W. Marriot in Mumbai, on September 22nd. producer Firoz A, Nadiadwala have roped in superstars for their forthcoming film, Power. The stars attended the mahurat, where they shot the first shot of the movie. Surprisingly, the stars were all dressed up as the characters of the film, with Mr. Bachchan, Ajay and Sanjay deliberating the murder of ‘Balraj’ (Anil Kapoor), obviously the villain of the film.
Though Raj Kumar Santoshi refused to reveal the story or the characters in detail, he agreed that it was probably his biggest multi-starrer till date. The stars were no less excited about the film’s mahurat. Sanjay Dutt tweeted about his film, “Mahurat of my new film ‘Power’ today. Directed by Rajji (Rajkumar Santoshi). Looking forward for the shoot to begin.” Ameesha Patel, who will be playing a role opposite Sanjay Dutt in the film, had been excitedly tweeting about the film since morning, “Getting ready to leave for the mahurat of my new film ‘Power’…All the actors will be there for the mahurat shot. Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor…Can only imagine the energy in the room with so many superfine actors.” Interestingly, at the mahurat, we found Ameesha Patel posing for the shutterbugs in the hotel lobby, while the male actors and director Rajkumar addressed the media.
If you think, these handful of stars are already too much to handle, then wait till you hear this. There’s one more lead actor (male) to be finalised and the word is that Kangna Ranaut too might be roped in to play the female lead. Television actress Lekha Washington is also a part of the movie.
