Paa has become a hot proposition overnight, soon after its very first promo was unveiled. The distributors are super-excited, the exhibitors are waiting to lay their hands on the film and the moviegoers are waiting with bated breath to watch the superstar transform into a kid.
Not many are aware that the production reins of Paa have been handled by Abhishek Bachchan himself. "It was a great learning experience," he tells me. Abhishek seems to have learnt the ropes pretty fast, since the first thing he did, before the film went on floors, was to keep the economics of Paa in check.
"Making an economically viable project is most important in today's times," Abhishek says. The film hasn't cost its makers a fancy amount, despite the presence of A-listers such as the Big B, Abhishek himself, Vidya Balan and Paresh Rawal. Paa is produced by AB Corp and Sunil Manchanda and directed by R. Balki.
