Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Talisman


After Eklavya, Vidhu Vinod Chopra has signed on Amitabh Bachchan for yet another film  titled Talisman. The film’s promo was recently showcased with Eklavya in theatres.

“Talisman is an adaptation of a popular Hindi novel- Chandrakanta, written by Devaki Nandan Khatri. Chandrakanta is considered the first work of prose in modern Hindi,” adds Thomas George, Chopra’s business manager.

While Thomas is reluctant to divulge details about Bachchan’s role in the film, he says that Bachchan’s get up in the film will be a unique one.

Chandrakanta is a fantasy novel, and tells a story of two lovers belonging to two rival kingdoms, Naugarh and Vijaygarh. The story was also converted into a television serial in the mid-1990s.

Talisman is being directed by Ram Madhvani, and is supposed to be a fantasy film. Ram Madhvani had made a small film called Let’s Talk in 2002 that starred Boman Irani. According to Vidhu, “Talisman is a fantasy; it is Indian’s reply to Lord of the Rings. It is really something that is very huge.”
