Amitabh Bachchan The name says it all. Be it films, television or anything he sets his mind to, AB has the Midas touch. Amitabh Bachchan is a name that has become a part of every Indian household, and more. He is their star of the millennium. He has not only given us classics to swear by but he also makes sure that he doesn’t remain stagnant with passing time. Very few actors from his era are still into showbiz and Big B sure likes to pursue his passion no matter the era, age or time.
When Times Of India recently interacted with the mega star for his forthcoming release ‘Pink’ in a live FB chat, he spoke his heart out on many pressing issues, including that of rape. “I am not the law. Neither am I in the security forces. I just feel generally that we need to educate our masses from a very early age and tell them that the girl child is a very important asset to our family and that needs to be inculcated from the time they are born. They are not just someone that can be easily discarded. They go through a very rough time. They go through a huge amount of character change, society change at an age… when they go up to about 20-21 and call themselves by this name and suddenly one day they get married and they are told no this is not your surname. It is this. I don’t know how it affects them but this is a huge psychological change for anyone,” he shared.
Asked whether he would host the popular TV show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ again, he answered, “I don’t know if I will be back with ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.” Talking about challenges, the actor revealed that he considered his role in ‘Sarkar 3’ as his challenge as an actor.
When we asked Shoojit about why he chose to call the film ‘Pink’, he shared, “It’s a very catchy title and it’s a very young title. We wanted to relate the film with the youth. When you watch the film, you will know what ‘Pink’ is all about. May be after watching this film, the perception of Pink will change. It is a very out of the box name and in my films I have tried to keep the titles very unique.”
From the time the trailer was launched, people have been talking about the film, more so lead actor Amitabh Bachchan’s explosively provocative dialogues. ‘Pink’ releases on September 16, 2016.
