Shoojit Sircar: Amitabh respects younger filmmakers

By Neharika, News Network

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar lately teamed up with actor Amitabh Bachchan for a courtroom drama film ‘Pink’. Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Angad Bedi, Andrea Tariang, Piyush Mishra and Dhritiman Chatterjee were the other actors that the film featured.

Sircar, during his visit to the IANS headquarters, to promote his forthcoming production venture "Running Shaadi", said, “Every time working with him (Amitabh) is like a big opportunity. I would definitely want to work with him again.”

"Now he (Amitabh) has become very easy with us. He gives us a lot of space to talk to. Earlier we were scared of him, but now he has come down to our level and he talks like that," added Sircar.

Shoojit finds Big B to be like a ‘child’. "He is like a 14-year-old boy. The most important thing about him is that he respects the young generation of filmmakers, writers or actors. He is not like, 'I belong to an older generation'," he said. "We have learned a lot from him and keep doing so. He is a fantastic artist to work with," he added.

Several other actors, who were present at the promotional event of ‘Running Shaadi’, also lauded Amitabh. Sharing his experience about working with Amitabh in "Sarkar 3", Amit Sadh said: "For the first time when I faced him, was when we were shooting for 'Sarkar 3'. Taapsee, who shared screen space with Big B in "Pink", added: "It's unbelievable to receive a text message from Mr Bachchan. That feeling is something."

Film director Amit Roy too praised Mr. Bachchan by saying, "The only thing common between all of us is that we are all huge fans of Mr Bachchan."
