Ironically, Dhanush, who is a huge fan of Mr.Bachchan was ecstatic to work with him ever since he made his inroad into the Hindi film industry.
Very few know that Dhanush’s first shot for RAANJHANAA was with the iconic image of Mr.Bachchan in COOLIE (one of his personal favourites) and director Aanand L Rai, who shares a warm equation with the actor always felt that Dhanush was meant to work with Amitabh Bachchan at some point in his career and SHAMITABH was a spectacular coincidence of something he had foreseen for the young star.
Says Aanand L Rai, ‘As RAANJHANAA was Dhanush’s first film in Bollywood so I wanted to give him a complete feel of this industry. And so we decided to do his first photoshoot against a portrait of the Icon of Bollywood Mr.Bachchan. While he never imagined that he would work with this legend in his second Hindi film, it was something I wished and hoped for him and it has come true.’
Marking Akshara Haasan’s debut in Bollywood, SHAMITABH is all set to release on 6th February, 2015.
