The Megastar talks about his latest film with Paa director during a trailer launch
Amitabh Bachchan is teaming up with frequent collaborator R Balki in upcoming film Shamitabh and the megastar says he is amazed how the director always comes up with unique scripts.
The 72-year-old actor has previously worked with Balki in films like Cheeni Kum in which he played a 60-plus chef in love with a much younger woman and Paa, which saw him don the role of a child suffering from progeria. "Whenever Balki comes to me with a script, my initial reaction is that he must be drunk - his scripts are so unique. When he narrated me the story of Shamitabh I was surprised. I had a similar feeling when he offered me Cheeni Kum and Paa. He was very clear about what he wanted from me, including my looks," Bachchan said during the film's trailer launch here last night.
In the film, Bachchan will be seen sporting a rugged, unkempt look. "We got few make up artistes from abroad and they worked with my own make up guy Deepak to create my look with beard."
Shamitabh also stars south superstar Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush and will mark the debut of Akshara Haasan, who is the younger daughter of actor Kamal Haasan and Sarika.
