“It’s a great honour and privilege to be working with Aamir and to be working with Yashraj again and also to work with Victor, I just look forward to that moment,” said Mr Amitabh Bachchan in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive video interview with Content Head Broadband Faridoon Shahryar today. This is for the first time that anyone from the film has officially confirmed to the media and it happens to be a Bollywood Hungama exclusive.
“I don’t know if I can talk much about the film at this moment. I haven’t been given permission. All I can say is that it is a very exciting subject,” Mr Bachchan said. Reacting to the much publicised title of the film ‘Thug’ he said that the title hasn’t been confirmed yet and in due course of time Yashraj will make an announcement regarding the same. Mr Bachchan stated that his film with Aamir will start early next year.
There has been speculation about Mr Bachchan doing a film with Varun Dhawan for YRF. Mr Bachchan didn’t deny the buzz and said that in due course of time the details can be shared about that film. He did confirm that he shall be part of Sarkaar 3, a film with Balki is on the cards, a film for Sujoy Ghosh’s production house that will be either directed by Sujoy himself or by Ribhu Dasgupta and a few more are in the pipeline. “Most of the next year is going to be slightly busy,” Big B said with a smile.
Mr Bachchan is busy promoting Pink right now and the passion and vigour with which he approaches film promotions or anything that he does is nothing short of genius. I know it is a news report but still I shall end this story with a line from a Nazm ‘Nazr-e-Firaq’ by Fahmida Riaz on the great Urdu poet Firaq Gorakhpuri:
Naaz karungi khush bakhti mein maine Firaq ko dekha tha.
Similarly we can proudly say that we have the privilege of meeting the great Amitabh Bachchan. I remind this to myself each time I have the honour to meet and get mesmerised by this towering inspiring personality.
