Amitabh Bachchan, Rashmika Mandanna starrer 'GoodBye' locks release date
Amitabh Bachchan and Rashmika Mandanna's comedy-drama GoodBye will release on October 7 this year. The film, which co-stars Neena Gupta and Pavail Gulati, has been directed by Vikas Bahl (Super 30, Queen). GoodBye will mark "national crush" Mandanna's Hindi cinema debut. At the box office, GoodBye will clash with Rajkummar Rao-Janhvi Kapoor's Mr. and Mrs. Mahi although the latter is rumored to get postponed.
Why does this story matter?
Rashmika Mandanna has made a name for herself in a brief period due to her breakthrough roles in films like Pushpa: The Rise, Dear Comrade, and Geetha Govindam. Her charm and exuberance, coupled with her acting chops, have proved to work wonders. Meanwhile, Bachchan has had a busy year and GoodBye will be his third theatrical outing in 2022 after Jhund and Runway 34.
Fans believe 'GoodBye' can be the next 'Piku'
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the update. Apart from the aforementioned actors, GoodBye also stars Elli AvrRam, Sunil Grover, Sahil Mehta, and Shayank Shukla. Notably, Grover and Shukla earlier worked with Bahl in Sunflower. The announcement has left fans excited and some cinephiles have already termed it the next Piku due to Mandanna and Big B's collaboration.
