Mumbai, Aug 12 (IANS) After his 'Baabul' and 'Baghban', prolific filmmaker Ravi Chopra has cast superstar Amitabh Bachchan again in his forthcoming 'Pocket Maar'.

'We've so far done 'Baghban' and 'Baabul'. And decades ago I directed him in 'Zameer'. I couldn't plunge into another film with him just because of the rapport we share. The project has to be worthy of his presence. I'm now planning 'Pocket Maar' with Bachchan for early next year,' Ravi told IANS.

Does the Big B play the title role again as he did in his earlier hit films?

'No, this time he plays the victim of a pickpocket's designs. For the man who commits the crime it's just another job done, and finished with. But what about the man who loses, say 10,000 rupees? What repercussions do this loss have on his life? Bachchan will play that man.'

Playing the victim isn't new to Amitabh. He did it recently in 'Viruddh' and 'Baghban'. But Ravi Chopra has an entirely new character and look planned for him.
