Amitabh Bachchan will soon team up with celebrated director Anurag Kashyap for a short film and later in the year, he will shoot for a featured film with the same director.
Excited to be a part of Anurag’s film, Big B wishes he was young as he feels the present generation is “this most interesting period in the life of our film world, riding high on confidence of the youngsters
The 70-year-old posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com, “I work with Anurag Kashyap tomorrow for a short film that he makes, as part of a compilation of short stories being put together as an experiment.”
However, he didn’t reveal the title of the project.
“And later in the year to start a complete film, which he has narrated to me, and which sounds innovative and exciting. The young generation that has found its place in the industry is most commendable. I just love their enthusiasm and drive, their thought process, the confidence that they exude and their absolute faith in the medium which they are associated with,” he posted.
Big B also says, “I can safely say that this period in the history of cinema in India, shall pave the way for a kind of recognition that may never have been witnessed before.”
Amitabh Bachchan wants to be a part of this change, but his age doesn’t permit.
“And as I sit with jaw wide open in adulation and surprise, I regret the fact of not having been young enough to take on and be a part of this most interesting period in the life of our film world. I wish and want to be with all, in all their thinking and endeavour, in their desires and accomplishments … but I do feel that that time has long since passed,” he said.
