Pink a thriller, Bachchan playing lawyer: Shoojit
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar says his upcoming production Pink is a Delhi-set thriller and will see megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role of a lawyer.
Shoojit has teamed up with Bachchan for the third time after their unreleased film Shoebite and last year’s hit Piku, which saw Big B bagging the best actor National Award recently. Pink, also starring Baby actor Taapsee Pannu, is being directed by Bengali filmmaker Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, who helmed the 2006 National award-winning film Antaheen. Shoojit said, “Pink is a thriller set in Delhi and Mr Bachchan will be seen in the role of a lawyer. There are three other important characters. One of them is played by Taapsee Pannu.” The filmmaker praised 28-year-old Taapsee who has also worked in his other forthcoming production Runningshaadi.com.
