Abhishek's role call

GOOD DAYS are definitely around the corner for Abhishek Bachchan. Besides Raj Kumar Santoshi and Mani Ratnam's films, he's also doing a film with Rajiv Menon, who is all set to direct his first film in Hindi. A father-son story (many more are in the making in Bollywood), Menon's film is being produced by I Dreams and written by Anjum Rajabali (who will turn a director shortly).

Abhishek is also finally ready to make that long-due film with Ram Gopal Varma happen. The last time they almost came to working together was for "Bhoot", and then an aborted script called "Rakshasa". Now Ramu is working on another exciting script with Abhishek in the lead.

This past week, Abhishek began shooting for Boney Kapoor's "Run" with newcomer Bhoomika and Mahesh Manjrekar.
