Amitabh Bachchan's films are awaited just as much today as they were decades ago. Even at 72, his charismatic personality can easily attract people towards him. His films always have something unique and different to offer to us and his upcoming film SHAMITABH is just as distinctive which is making us even more curious for it.


With an unusual title, we ask Big B about the idea behind it and he tells us why the film has been titled SHAMITABH, “The name of the film is SHAMITABH not because it has Dhanush & my name. It isn't for creating sensation and to draw people's attention towards it. People should get attracted because it is a part of the story. Only because of the story the film is titled SHAMITABH. When you watch the film you'll get to know.”

“Balki just messaged me, during the music launch of the film on 20th January, a new trailer will be launched, that time, you'll might get a little more hint why is it titled SHAMITABH.” he further added.

People are eagerly waiting for the film to release on 6th February, so is Big B too waiting for it? “Just as much as you all are waiting for 6th February, even I am very excited. This is my third film with Balki, first there was CHEENI KUM and then PAA and in every film, he has offered me a different role & story. And I believe, this film will also be different from the rest of the films. The kind of story & plot which has been written, probably, has never been seen in the Hindi film industry, so, I am very eager to know the audiences' reaction.”

Big B even shared the outline of the film, “SHAMITABH is a story of two people, what one has the other doesn't and what the other person has the first one doesn't. Then one journalist, portrayed by Akshara Haasan, cognizes this and gets the two talents together which results in a lot of benefit in their profession. Then, as the story proceeds, how the ego comes in between those two people is the story. One feels the success is because of him and vice versa. What happens after that, you'll come to know in the film.”

SHAMITABH also stars Dhanush and marks Akshara Haasan debut in Bollywood. Written & directed by R. Balki, produced by R K Damani, Rakesh Jhunjhunwaala, Sunil Lulla Abhishek Bachchan & Gauri Shinde, the film is set to release on 6th February, 2015.
