First news on Ada (Indiafm 09/05/01)
We were the first to break the news that Tanveer Ahmed, maker of
MAHATMA and AAKARSHAN, was all set to start his third venture, ADA, which
would be presented by Jhamu Sugandh. The latest on the project is that the
maker is planning to cast Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal
roles. According to a trustworthy source, the script has already been
sent to Amitabh Bachchan for approval, after which the maker would
approach Dilip Kumar to play Amitabh's father in the film.
Reportedly based on four generations, Dilip Kumar will represent the
first generation and Amitabh the second. It is said that one of the Khans
will be signed to play the role of the third generation, while
newcomers will represent the fourth generation.
Tanvir Ahmed has already recorded nine songs for the film, which have
been composed by A.R. Rahman. "It's true that Rahman has recorded all
the nine songs at a go. Normally, he records one or two songs in the
beginning and the balance songs subsequently, but he decided to complete
all the songs at a stretch this time," confirms Tanveer. The project is
scheduled to go on the floors by the end of this year.
