Hema Malini is angry with Rituparno Ghosh because the director offered a miniscule role to Esha Deol in his film ‘The last Lear’.
Producer Arindam Choudhuri says that Amitabh was the first choice for the role of Shakespeare’s King Lear. In The film, Amitabh Bachchan will play an old but passionate, fading Shakespearean actor.
Apart from Big B, Preity Zinta and Arjun Rampal have also been signed for the project. Divya Dutta and Shefali Shah will also star in the film.
