Big B film stalled

January 21, 2009

The Amitabh Bachchan starrer fantatasy flick, Aladdin, has been shelved says sources close to the film unit. When probed into the reason behind this it has been found that its producers Eros International have been suffering from severing financial crunch and hence have decided to hold the film for the time being. Eros International recently pulled out of the mega budget project Endhiran, which has Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles.

Aladdin is inspired by the Arabian Nights in which the Big B signed up to play the genie while Sanjay Dutt was to have essayed the Ring Master’s role. Riteish Deshmukh was signed up to star in the title role. Aladdin, which was slated to be released during mid 2009, is directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
