The legendary actor par excellence Amitabh Bachchan has enthralled viewers for decades now, both on the big screen and the small. This time round, he is all set to feature as the main lead in a daily soap.
Apparently, Bachchan, who recently wrapped up the sixth season of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', is preparing to star in a daily soap that is set to go on air later this year. Though details of the show are being kept tightly under wraps, sources close to the project say, that it will be produced by the megastar's own company AB Corp.
Though the auditions for the show are currently under way at several studios in Andheri, the show itself will be made on a massive budget. Buzz is that even though Big B will be the face of the serial, he may not make an appearance in every episode. At the same time, he will do all that he can to promote the serial.
