"I will be the creative producer of the film. Tony (the director) is a friend. The cast is yet to be finalised. Only Mr Bachchan has been confirmed. It will be Tony's first Hindi film. It's a social thriller and will be shot in Delhi," Sircar said.

"The film is based in Delhi. It's a very important film in today's time. The shooting will begin early this year. We are planning to get the film on the floor around February or March," Sircar, who had also produced Bengali film 'Aparajita Tumi', helmed by Chowdhury, said.

The team is still 'figuring out' the release date of the film, directed by Chowdhury, who is known for movies like 'Anuranan' and 'Antaheen'.

Amitabh and Sircar have earlier worked together for 'Piku'.
