WEB DESK: Indian Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the part of Indian Film industry over 45 years. Appreciating the new talent, he says that he still gets to learn so much from young and talented actors like Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Bachchan has worked with Vidya Balan in “Paa” and now he will be seen with her in a drama thriller “Te3n” which also stars a Nawazuddin.
“It’s always a joy to work with Vidya, and I was equally delighted to work with Nawaz whom I’ve always admired. He is a phenomenal talent,” Bachchan told the reporters.
“Truly, we get to learn so much from artists like Vidya and Nawaz because they are this generation, and I am in great admiration and awe of all the artists in the younger generation,” he said.
“Te3n” is the direction of Ribhu Dasgupta which is set in Kolkata. The story is about the crime that affects three of its main characters.
Bachchan, 73, stars in the film as John Biswas, a grandfather in pursuit of justice for eight years, while Siddiqui plays Father Martin Das, whose life was changed with the same crime that claimed the life of John’s granddaughter.
Vidya, 38, will be seen in a special appearance as the cop who swings into action when an identical crime is repeated eight years later.
The “Piku” star said he observes the young actors very closely because they bring certain freshness, which he hasn’t seen in his career.
“They bring to the table something that we are not used to, that we haven’t seen through the 40 years I’ve been in cinema. I watch them very carefully, and when I work with them I admire the way they approach the project, the scene, and I have just great admiration for my two co-artists in the film,” Bachchan said.
Filmmmaker Sujoy Ghosh is working as a Creative Director with “Te3n”. Bachchan said that the “Kahaani” helmer had come up with another idea to him.
“He had actually come with another idea before. We were almost set to do. It was a film about Kerala and we had decided on the story and decided to go ahead, schedule our dates. One day they said they had another idea. It took me just a couple of seconds to say let’s do this, and not the other one at the moment,” he added.
“Te3n” will be released on June 10.
