It was just a few days ago when we informed you that Sooraj Barjatya is looking forward to directing Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani in a film. The project was a result of Salman Khan's busy schedule due to which Barjatya had to delay his film with the megastar and work on another. It was being reported that since Sooraj Barjatya was itching to work on a film and has some spare time to him, he decided to work on the project that stars Bachchan and Irani. Now Anupam Kher has confirmed that he is a part of the film too. Sooraj Barjatya to Work With Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani Next, Courtesy of Salman Khan’s Busy Schedule.
