The first poster of megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s debut Marathi movie AB Aani CD is out now. The movie stars veteran film and theatre actor Vikram Gokhale in the lead role, while Bachchan will be seen in a special cameo playing himself.
Producer Akshay Bardapurkar had earlier said about both actors’ characters, “They both start their journey together. Bachchan sir and Gokhale sir are school friends and they meet almost after 70 years for a birthday party. AB stands for Amitabh Bachchan and CD for Gokhale’s character, who is called Chandrakant Deshpande.”
Talking about the length of the role that Amitabh Bachchan plays in AB Aani CD, Bardapurkar had added, “Bachchan sir is playing himself in the film. He will be seen as a megastar and the role is about 15-minutes-long.”

On the occasion of the Ganeshotsav, the first poster of the movie was presented to the Lalbaug Cha Raja. Producer Akshay Bardapurkar and director Milind Lele were present at this poster launch event of the film. Strikingly, the first poster of AB Aani CD features Vikram Gokhale in the same get-up which Big B had donned in one of his iconic songs ‘Saara Jamana’ from the film Yaarana (1981). The film is scheduled to hit theatres soon.
