First look at Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s fantasy flick “Talismaan“. It has Amitabh Bachchan in a different Avatar. Fantasy flicks are in vogue and the Bollywood fraternity has just woken up to a wide variety of Indian fantasy novels written down the ages. One such novel is titled Chandrakanta, written in 1892 by Babu Devaki Nandan Khatri.
In an attempt to bring fantasy to India, Vinod Chopra Films is adapting this book into a movie called Talismaan starring Amitabh Bachchan. Rumours also have it that Talismaan has been inspired by the LOTR series and Harry Potter. Talismaan is set to hit the floors in 2009, although Madhavani claims that the film being heavy on special effects will require the pre-production to start soon.
