I know people call me a false modest person: Big B
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan feels there are a lot of people who find him falsely modest, but he makes no bones about it saying that even though there are new faces in his upcoming film Pink, they will catch the audience’s attention with their “exceptional” work.
“As an actor, I have been in this line for 45 years. Most of them (actors in Pink) are new faces in this film and you have not seen them before. “But once you see the film, you will not see me, you will only see them,” the 73-year-old said at the film’s trailer launch. “It’s exceptional work that they have done, and I say this from the bottom of my heart.
“I am not being modest. I know a lot of people call me a false modest person, but this is the honest truth,” he said.
The movie, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary, also features Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang in key roles.
“I have never worked with such exceptional actors. They are so committed. You cannot believe the kind of performance they have given. They are so natural and it’s an inspiration for me,” he added.
Pink is a film set in Delhi, and stars Amitabh as a lawyer. The trailer suggests it is an unconventional thriller.
