Amitabh Bachchan The father-son duo of Amitabh
Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan is a rare
enigmatic pair one can see on screen. And French
director Jan Kounen and producer Manuel de la
Roche are planning to rope the two actors for their next venture.

The movie is about the history of Dalai Lamas
since 14th century and is named ‘The Secret
History of the Dalai Lamas’. Producer of the
movie, Manuel de la Roche, is quoted as saying,
"It will blend dramatised re-enactments involving
the earlier incarnations with excerpts from an
interview with the current Dalai Lama.”

Amitabh and Abhishek have worked together in
various films like Bunty Aur Babli , Kabhi Alvida
Naa Kehna , Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and the intense
Sarkar series. Director R. Balakrishnan is
presently tapping the amazing chemistry of the
father and son in his next Pa . Now, the Big B
and Abhi are on the wishlist of Roche.

Roche says, "We are very keen to cast the father
and son duo in key roles in the film."

The makers will also try to get Sharon Stone, the
actress who practices Tibetan Buddhism.
Apparently, she will act as a narrator, while
another practicing Buddhist Richard Gere is also
likely to be a part of the film.

According to Roche, the shooting of ‘The Secret
History of the Dalai Lamas’ will start later this
year in the places like Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh
and in some other parts of the Indian subcontinent.

The movie is planned to release by the second
half of 2010. To produce the film, Roche’s
company Movie Sphere has collaborated with a
German production house Integral films, based in Berlin.

Kounen’s latest film ‘Coco Chanel and Igor
Stravinsky’ is chosen as the closing film of the
ongoing Cannes Film Festival. Abhishek is also at
the fest with his wife Aishwarya Rai .
