In just a week of officially announcing the thriller flick by R Balki, a new update has made its way to the Internet. Just like his most directorial, the upcoming film will also feature Amitabh Bachchan in an important special appearance. Balki himself confirmed the report and revealed that the legendary actor has to be there in his film. The filmmaker went on to reveal that Big B will be appearing in a 'crucial juncture' of the film.

Balki told Bollywood Hungama, "In my thriller, Mr Bachchan will come in at a crucial juncture in the plot. His presence would be decisive, as it always is in my cinema. I’d never cast him just for the sake of casting him."

While, a BollywoodLife report suggested that not just Big B, Katrina Kaif will also make a special cameo with him in the Balki directed film.

Talking about the cast of the thriller flick, Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt, Dulquer Salmaan and Shreya Dhanwanthary are in the lead roles.

On casting Sunny in the film, Balki had praised that the actor can command respect without raising his voice or fists and that's the personality he wanted for this character.

While talking about Dulquer, the filmmaker revealed that the thriller needs the presence of the Malayalam heartthrob and his fans will see him in an entirely new light.

When asked about the pairing of Sunny and Pooja in the film, the Paa helmer told the entertainment portal, "Let’s just say they are co-hunters in the thriller."

The shoot of the film will be underway soon and the release date is likely to be in early 2022.
