Mumbai: Self proclaimed actor Abhishek Bachchan is slated to act in the next Bond movie, Spectre. Spectre is already making news because fifty year old Monica Bellucci is acting as
Bond senior woman Bond girl. Nothing has happened beyond Abhishek’s screen test, but a knowledgeable insider said that Abhishek is sure to get the part. “It is guy in coma. The role does not require any acting or talking. How hard can it be for Abhishek to nail it?” the insider asked. “Still we have a back up plan. If he fails the test for the coma guy, he could be cast as the guy in a photo on the wall”, the insider said.
Abhishek Bachchan, commenting on the role said, “I have had a long career thanks to the support of my fans and my father, well, mainly my father, but this is going to be the toughest role of my career. But I am well prepared. I have taken tips on how to be expressionless from my wife.”
It is rumored that Abhishek Bachchan beat Irrfan Khan in the race to land the role of the coma guy. “No one can beat Abhishek when it comes to playing a coma guy,” the insider said. However Irrfan Khan had another take on the whole episode. “Have you heard of being born with silver spoon in the mouth? Well, Abhishekh was probably born with silver spoon thrust till his colon.” He tweeted a link to an x-ray as proof of his claim.
Meanwhile Sam Mendes, the director of the movie, talked in an interview about the mounting troubles for the movie. “It is crazy! Daniel Craig got hurt couple of times during the stunt scene. Then Monica Belluci got drafted as the Bond girl. Somehow we regrouped and got the movie on track. But now looms the spectre of biggest setback-casting of Abhishekh Bachchan as the guy in coma. I hope we can get through this.”
