‘Big B is like a 14-year-old’
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.
