‘Big B is like a 14-year-old’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Film­maker Shoo­jit Sir­car (left), who has worked with ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan (right) in films such as Piku (2015) and Pink (2016), says that the best thing about Big B is that he re­spects young tal­ent in the film in­dus­try a lot. He also finds the 74-year-old to be like a teenager.

“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 is a fan­tas­tic artist to work with,” says Sir­car, adding that he wants to work with Big B again.

“Now he 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 talks like that.”

Sir­car, who was ru­moured to be mak­ing a doc­u­men­tary on the Agneepath star, clar­i­fies that the project is “not” a doc­u­men­tary. “I’ve spent al­most 11 years with him. I’ve been work­ing with him since 2006. This is like mem­o­ra­bilia which in­cludes his and my in­ter­ac­tions. It will take some time to com­pile it,” he says.
