Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan will be seen together in Bachchan’s makeup person’s first Hindi film titled 'Leader'

Amitabh Bachchan and wife Jaya will be once again seen together in makeup man-and-producer Deepak Sawant’s film, 'Leader'. The couple has already featured in two of his films: 'Ganga Devi' and 'Akka'. Says Deepak Sawant, “In the film, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan will play father-in-law and mother-in-law to the heroine played by actress Pakhi Hegde.”

The Bachchans’ presence in Sawant’s film is perhaps not so surprising; after all, no film of his is complete without Big B. The veteran actor has, in fact, starred in all four films that Sawant has produced so far; this includes his three Bhojpuri films and one Marathi film. “As far as Mr Bachchan is concerned, he always plays a pivotal character in my films. So does Jayaji,” says Sawant.
