WAZIR will see two multi-talented actors Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar coming together. Their last outing together was when Amitabh Bachchan had a pivotal role in Farhan Akhtar's directorial LAKSHYA starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead role.
In a recently held interview, Farhan shared the excitement and aura of meeting Big B and sharing space with the icon as a co-actor. He said, “When I was first told that Mr. Bachchan agreed to do the role in WAZIR, there was a serious amount of excitement. I saw him for the first time in his WAZIR look and went through a surreal and out-of-body experience for about 15 minutes imagining how the world will be watching what I'm already witnessing in front of my eyes.”
When we asked Farhan how different things were now that he was sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan, speaking about the challenge while directing Big B, said, “To be honest, it was more challenging to direct Amitabh Bachchan than to act with him.”

“When you are directing Amitabh Bachchan, you don't get much time to spend together, because you as a director are constantly prepping for the next day. As a director, your responsibility is way more towards the actors. The director has to create an environment in which the actors can perform without stress. There are many other actors to also deal with,” added Farhan.
Then speaking about his experience working with Amitabh Bachchan in WAZIR as a co-star, Farhan said, “But on this film, I had a lot of time to spend with Amitabh Bachchan because the larger responsibilities were of Bejoy's. We spoke about movies, his experiences working on a lot of films that I've enjoyed watching. Reading at his house helped break the ice.”
