The film PAA might have brought back the laurels for Big B's film production company, but the script of the film had not impressed the superstar in the beginning when he read it for the first time.
At the recently held Brooke Bond Taj Enlighten Tareef Award, the superstar who was honoured with a lifetime award for his contribution to the world cinema was recollecting how PAA has turned out to be one of the latest highs in his career.
Speaking about the film, Big B said, 'Initially I felt the script of PAA was weak. Though, when I was told that I will play the role of a son in the film, I was actually thrilled. So, I told my director about my reaction to the script which had powerful characters but a weak script according to me. Later, to my surprise, the filmmaker re-drafted the script and when I read it again, I was simply bowled over.'
The award ceremony saw Big B interacting with the audiences at length and he spoke in detail about his favourite film dialogues and scenes.
The superstar also used the occasion to convey his displeasure with the recently published reports about his Bahu Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in which it was stated that she was suffering from stomach tuberculosis. The superstar said that such reports were absolutely unwanted and demanded an apology from the publishers.
