Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday celebrations are now underway with a special gesture by veteran star Dharmendra – Bachchan’s long-lasting friend for over five decades! The OG friends of Bollywood who celebrated friendship on the big screen and gave us – yeh dosti hum nahi todenge, reunite today as Dharmendra takes to Twitter to wish Big B ahead of his character poster launch from the much anticipated film – ‘Uunchai’. Produced by Rajshri Productions in association with Mahaveer Jain Films and Boundless Media, ‘Uunchai’ will be Big B’s first release in his landmark 80th year! Helmed by Sooraj R. Barjatya, ‘Uunchai’ is slated to release on 11th November 2022.
An ambitious project, with an iconic ensemble, ‘Uunchai’ remains a film that Big B blogged the most about on his famous online blog. The first poster of the film, that released on Friendship Day, had set the thematic backbone of the story – Friendship! The tagline read – friendship was their only motivation. Taking the theme of the film forward, it was a heartwarming surprise that had friendship at its very core, as Veeru wished Jai for Rajshri’s ‘Uunchai’.
With the first character poster out today, two contrasting shades of this century’s biggest superstar, were revealed from his next release – ‘Uunchai’. Amitabh Bachchan on one hand is seen in a suave avatar in a glamorous world. While on the other hand, a contrast image of his character from the film shows him with snow-burned skin, amidst ice mountains, looking up with hope and ambition in his eyes.
‘Uunchai’ celebrates Rajshri’s glorious 75 years in the industry. Touted to be 2022’s biggest ensemble film, ‘Uunchai’ will bring to screen the biggest and finest actors of Indian Cinema! Headlined by Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Sarika, Neena Gupta and Parineeti Chopra, ‘Uunchai’ also promises pivotal performances by Danny Denzongpa and Nafisa Ali Sodhi.
