New Delhi, April 21 (IANS) Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is set to share the screen space with Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley in Leena Yadav's 'Teen Patti' which is said to be inspired by Hollywood flick '21'.

Amitabh, who is currently in London to shoot the last schedule of the film, posted on his blog: 'Soon after we (have to) get into a photo shoot and (start) reading rehearsals for the shoot with Sir Ben Kingsley. He plays an important part in the film.'

Recent media reports indicated that Hollywood star Richard Gere also too would be a part of the film and Amitabh has fuelled rumours hinting presence of some big names in the film on his blog.

'There are some important names being mentioned for the shoot, but unless it all happens it would be premature to talk of them. Perhaps a little later when we are deep in progress on our work,' he wrote.

On his first day in London, Big B was told that famous commentator and TV presenter David Frost wished to interview him and the former was elated.

'I am told Sir David Frost, that great commentator and TV personality, wishes to interview me for a programme he does on India. Such an important personality, what ever would he find talking to me, I wonder.'

'The possibility of meeting up with two decorated personalities and in fact working with them together seems awe inspiring,' said Amitabh.

In 'Teen Patti', Amitabh plays a professor who tutors five of his brightest proteges, played by R. Madhavan and newcomers Siddharth Kher, Dhruv Ganesh, Vaibhav Talwar and Shraddha Kapoor for high stake gambling, but with a cause.

    why do they have to copy hollywood?? i''m sure there are many great scripts in India too ... The problem is that even good scripts need time so that it can be made into good films but they rush everything and i bet this 21 knockoff will be the same ... at least TRY to be original guys ..
