Aamir, Rani and Big B in 'Tsunami'
Rani Mukherjee is all set to star with Aamir Khan and Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan in a love story set around the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
The film will be a rare take by Bollywood on natural disasters.
Titled ‘Tsunami’, the bilingual film in Hindi and English will be directed by award-winning Mumbai filmmaker Ujjal Chatterjee and will pay homage to thousands swept away by the killer waves.
A portion of ‘Tsunami’ will focus on unsung heroes like a priest in Tamil Nadu who gave shelter to hundreds of victims.
The film revolves around three main characters: a geologist who travels to Bali to study tectonic movements when the tsunami strikes, and his former girlfriend and her husband, who get separated during their honeymoon in the resort.
‘‘After months of search, the geologist finds his former love, traumatised in a camp after her husband leaves Bali losing all hope of finding his wife,’’ Chatterjee is quoted as saying in a media report.
Aamir and Rani are expected to play the main roles, and Bachchan could possibly play the role of a senior geologist or a priest.
‘‘People have woken up to issues like global warming and important events like the tsunami, which will forever remain embedded in our minds and that is why it makes an interesting subject to film,’’ Chatterjee said.
On December 26, 2004, giant waves triggered by an earthquake in the Indian Ocean killed some 230,000 people. The tsunami-ravaged Nagapattanam is one of the main settings for the film. Other locations are Bali in Indonesia and Phuket in Thailand.
Chatterjee’s earlier film, ‘Escape from Taliban’, about the true story of an Indian woman’s flight from Afghanistan, won critical acclaim.
