Hrithik to play Buddha
In the midst of all the controversy surrounding the Nandigram village everyone would expect this film to be about Buddhadeb Bhattacharya that we are referring to but it is on the founder of Buddhism. This mega budget venture produced by the Sri Lankan government is to be directed by the noted filmmaker Shyam Benegal.
The hunt for the actor to play the role of Buddha was on and Bollywood’s heartthrob Hrithik Roshan has finally bagged it. Director Shyam Benegal said that after sifting through a host of actors they found Hrithik’s looks most apt for the role of the prince who found enlightenment at a very young age. Search is on for the actress who would essay the female lead in the movie. Director Shyam, while speaking on the project, said that they are in the final stages of scripting and would highlight only the key incidents in the life of Buddha, as it would be very difficult to epitomize the life of a person in a three-hour film. From someone who did a remarkable job with a biopic on Bose we sure can expect another masterpiece from this legendary filmmaker.
