Shamitabh will see some popular Bollywood celebrities sharing screen space with Dhanush. Director Balki has got some friends of his from the industry to make special appearances in the film and for once, these stars will not be shaking a leg to a group song a la Om Shanthi Om. A source close to the sets tells us that directors Mahesh Bhatt, Gauri Shinde, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Raju Hirani and Anurag Kashyap will be seen in the flick alongside Javed Akthar, Ekta Kapoor and Boney Kapoor.
Starring Dhanush, Amitabh Bachchan and Akshara Haasan in lead roles, the film is the tale of a struggling deaf and mute junior artiste aiming to make it big in Bollywood. Amitabh Bachchan is co-producing the flick under his home banner and has already finished shooting for his portions. PC Sreeram and Ilaiyaraaja round up the team of Shamitabh. The film will hit the screens on February 6 next year.
