Tapasee in Amitabh Bachchan’s Buddha

South India’s new sensation Tapasee will play a meaty role in Tollywood director Puri Jagannath’s proposed Hindi film Buddha, starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead.

Buddha, produced by Ram Gopal Varma, is Tapasee’s Bollywood debut. Tabu will play the female lead, while Neha Sharma plays a key role.

Puri Jagannath recently narrated the story to Amitabh who has given a green signal after being impressed by the script. While the director was making arrangements to launch the film, Amitabh fell ill, causing the project to be postponed. Now, Amitabh is fine and the makers are gearing up to commence the project in February.
