Amitabh Bachchan next home production by AB Corp has been renamed as 'Bbuddah' so as not to hurt the sentiments of the followers of Gautam Buddha.
Amitabh mentioned in his blog, "The title of the next AB Corp production will be spelt 'BBUDDAH', with the tag line 'hoga terra baap!'. Just making sure it does not mingle (sic) with Gautam Buddha, the saint."
Bbuddah hoga tera baap will be jointly produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and the AB Corp. The film will be directed by the Tollywood director Puri Jagannath of the 'Pokiri' fame. Amitabh Bachchan added, "The first shot done today in Mumbai... joining by March 23. I join them when I finish here in Bhopal for 'Aarakshan'."
Bbuddah will be the Bollywood debut for Puri Jagannath as a director. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan in the leading role opposite three leading heroines. Reportedly actresses Hema Malini, Raveena Tandon have already been roped in as the female leads in the film. While roping in southern actress Charmme is still in-process.
