We told you earlier that for his film currently in production Bbuddah-Hoga Tera Baap, Amitabh Bachchan is going back to his angry man avatar. While he may not be young still, he is still going strong and for this film will once again be fighting! The esteemed actor says it has been awhile but he is excited to be back in action for the camera!
On his blog he wrote, “Its nostalgic to be in the presence of action directors again…had not been there for years…homesick for it!!”
“I had not punched, kicked or walloped a guy in ages! At least not in the past 15 years or so. But finding myself in those climes for ‘Bbuddah…’, I must admit I was really missing something,” he added.
According to Mr. Bachchan he is still in good form for the action scenes and doing them has even helped off camera, “”The stride has been firmer, the heart pumping the blood through the veins as rapidly as one would imagine and that strange feel of having conquered all, fills me up with enthusiasm, hope and a brighter tomorrow. There is a strange connect in this and I sometimes wonder why the earlier films got the kind of attention they did when they did.”
He went on to add, “The patriarch, the gentle giant, noble and dignified has long been the image that has been adhered to. One forgets how important it had been for those that identified with it. Violence has never been an appreciative point, but an action that has remained for a cause has forever found favor. Breaking away from what transpired for long, bringing back what had been dormant is now what this home production chooses to accomplish.”
“I have enjoyed today. Hopefully I shall enjoy more of it later.”
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the film also stars Hema Malini, and has music by Vishal and Shekhar. With a tagline like ‘Hoga Tera Baap’, we are sure this is going to be an exciting film and we are going to keep our eyes on all the news so watch for so much more!
