WORK­ING WITH BIG B IS A BAD HABIT, SAYS SU­JOY GHOSH

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Na­tional Award­win­ning film­maker Su­joy Ghosh says he is plan­ning to work with megas­tar Amitabh Bachchan again.

Asked about his next project, Ghosh, whose last fea­ture film was Ka­haani 2: Durga Rani Singh (2016), said, “Well, I am writ­ing a script and hope­fully, I will be work­ing with Amit Ji (ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan).”

He went on to add, “I think Amitabh Bachchan is a bad habit. If you work with him once, you want to work [with him] again and again. I have so many fond mem­o­ries of him. I wish to work with him soon.”

Amitabh sang No­bel prize-win­ning poet Rabindranath Tagore’s me­morable poem Ekla Cholo Re in Ghosh’s di­rec­to­rial ven­ture Ka­haani (2012), which went on to win three Na­tional Awards.

In 2016, Su­joy pro­duced the film Te3n in which Big B not only ap­peared in a piv­otal role but also sang the song Kyun Re.

“He al­ways sup­ported me, when­ever I went to him with any­thing, any of­fers. I never came back emp­ty­handed. I think that is the great­ness of that man,” Ghosh added.
