Amitabh Bachchan, who was seen recently in a murder mystery is set to share the screen space with Emraan Hashmi for the first time. The two megastars will be starred together in a psychological thriller which will be produced by Anand Pandit and directed by Rumi Jaffrey.

Pandit said in a statement: "My friendship with Bachchan goes back two decades. I have not met any other actor who matches his skill and commitment. It is an honour to be a part of creating a film with the legend. Given the subject of the film, Bachchan's association and a talented actor like Emraan Hashmi on board, I do believe we have a winner in our hands."

Big B tweeted: "A long standing commitment, now being fulfilled... Finally, to be a part of Anand Pandit's next production, starring Emraan Hashmi and directed by Rumi Jaffrey. Releasing on February 21, 2020", on Thursday morning.

The project which is still untitled will mark the first time collaboration between Big B and Emraan. We've already seen Big B's pulling off the character so-well in his recent murder mystery Badla. It will be really exciting to see how the two megastars look together on screen for the first time.

"I believe in Emraan, we have one of our best young actors. His performances are compelling," said Pandit.

Pandit has also backed Prime Minister Narendra Modi biopic - "PM Narendra Modi", starring Vivek Oberoi. But this film which was scheduled to release today has been stopped by Election Commission from releasing amid the Lok Sabha elections which began on Thursday.

The upcoming untitled project is being produced by is Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited. The film will also star Annu Kapoor and is set to go on floors from 10th May, 2019. The film is scheduled to release on 21st February, 2020.
