Shantaram - straight up with a twist and extra olives!

Amitabh Bachchan recently signed up to act with Johnny Depp in Mira Nair's next film "Shantaram", based on the epic novel by Gregory David Roberts ....but do we think Big B will settle for a script with such little screen time? Big B....we can't stand this and are offering to re-write the script for you (even though we know you are a big fan of Pirates of the Caribbean)

We think the movie should follow the adventures of a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin addict (still played by Johnny Depp) who escapes from prison to Bombay, India, where he meets and falls in love with a mafia don, Kadherbhai (played by Amitabh Bachchan). The movie depicts a complex emotional and sexual 'east meets west' romantic drama between two powerful men caught between Bollywood glam and Bombay gang wars.

Look out for this blockbuster to hit theaters in 2008! Here's the poster art for starters:
