A year ago, there was news about director Vijay Krishna Acharya’s (‘Tashan’, ‘Dhoom 3’) plans for his next film, ‘Thug’ starring Hrithik Roshan. Later, there were media reports thatAmitabh Bachchan had joined the cast. Roshan and Bachchan were last seen together on screen in ‘Lakshya’ (2004). So this seemed like a casting coup. Now, our sources indicate that Bachchan has reportedly opted out of ‘Thug’ due to the project being postponed.A Bollywood insider reveals that the studio backing this film has pushed it ahead a few times. Roshan is currently busy with his home production, ‘Kaabil’. And apparently, the script is also undergoing a minor re-writing.Rumours within the fraternity are rife that since Bachchan has a packed schedule ahead of him, he couldn’t wait any longer for the new film to take off. After ‘Pink’, Big B is reportedly committed to start work on ‘Aankhen 2’. He has also signed projects with R Balki and Sujoy Ghosh, both of which are expected to roll in 2017.
