The director's short film to feature Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo

Anurag Kashyap and Amitabh Bachchan may not have exactly been the best of friends till a little while ago but looks like a lot of water has passed under the bridge. Sources say Anurag’s short film as part of Bombay Talkies will have a special song dedicated to the veteran actor.

A source says, “Bachchan will play a cameo in the film. There is a surprise in store for him where a flash mob of 60 Bachchans (artistes dressed and masked like Bachchan) will launch the song in front of his home. Big B has a tradition of having fans gathering outside his house on Sunday evenings in the hope of catching a glimpse of the veteran.”
