Meet Big B's new on-screen mom
By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
There was a time when Nirupa Roy and Amitabh Bachchan were inseparable as mother and son. The golden era ended after LAAL BAADSHAH which was the last film where the two were seen together.
With Big B himself crossing 60, it was hard to imagine any film coming where an opportunity would arise to have someone play his mother. But the impossible has happened with the film CHEENI KUM where Amitabh Bachchan plays his age, i.e. 64, and still has a woman for his mother.
She is none other than acclaimed actress Zohra Seghal who is still known for her ever-so-spirited-and-fill-of-life persona.
In CHEENI KUM, she would be seen as an 85 year old lady who plays Big B's mother and as always brings on quite a few chuckles with her trademark acting style and dialogue delivery. She is the one who gives a go-ahead to him when he confesses to his love for Tabu and gives him tips on how to woo her and get talking to her father for her hand.
Directed by Balakrishnan, CHEENI KUM is slated for a May release.
