New Delhi, India: Veteran actress Nafisa Ali has joined the cast of the upcoming film Uunchai, giving Bollywood cinephiles a treat. Parineeti Chopra will play the lead role in director Sooraj Barjatya’s new film, which will also feature Nafisa Ali, Amitabh Bachchan, Neena Gupta, Anupam Kher, and Boman Irani. What’s more exciting for fans is that after the 1998 film Major Saab, Nafisa Ali will be sharing screen time with actor Amitabh Bachchan. The actress reminisced and expressed her delight at the prospect of working with the megastar once more. She recently shared a black-and-white photo of herself and Amitabh Bachchan on Instagram.
The two actors are smiling and posing for the camera in this photograph. “Memories of Major Saab and the present for Uunchai,” Nafisa Ali wrote in the caption of the photo.
Nafisa Ali shared a few more photos with Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, and Boman Irani, as well as her friend Kiran Nair, who accompanied her on set for Major Saab. It appears that the candid photo was taken while they were all having a pleasant conversation. “Watching the greats – my friend Kiran Nair (a retired army officer) is here with me in Mumbai and was with me during the shooting of ‘Major Saabh’ as well,” she captioned the photos. “I adore the sensation.”
Nafisa Ali recently shared a series of photos with Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, and Boman Irani. “Mumbai – At Mehboob Studio – 24 years after Major Saab feels great working together again,” she wrote in a detailed caption. She went on to say that the set is being built at Mehboob Studios in Mumbai’s Bandra neighbourhood. “This also marks Sooraj and Amitabh’s reunion after a 48-year gap,” she added. The last time the two collaborated was in the 1973 film Saudagar. With so many talented actors on set, there’s a lot of energy. Sooraj is an incredibly talented and sensitive director. I’m really looking forward to being a part of Uunchai.”
