Fridays still affect Amitabh Bachchan

Saturday, May 16, 2015

In his more than 40 years of acting career, Amitabh Bachchan has braved the box-office challenge innumerable times but the megastar says he still gets Friday jitters.

"Of course they do," Bachchan said when asked if he still gets affected before the release of his movies.

"There is anxiety and apprehension and jitters on what the audience is going to think about the film," he told PTI in an email interview.

The 72-year-old star is happy and relieved with the response to ‘Piku’, a slice-of-life story about a hypochondriac father obsessed with his digestive system and his overworked daughter (Deepika Padukone).

Bachchan has teamed up with Shoojit Sircar after 'Shoebite', which did not release. It is also his second big screen outing with Deepika Padukone after "Aarakshan" while he calls working with Irrfan Khan "a privilege".

"It is always a joy to be in a space that brings smiles on the faces of the audience. 'Piku' was certainly that space," the star said.

The movie is a family drama and a road-trip rolled in one and Bachchan's experience of working with Bengali directors helped him channel a Bengali father.

“I have lived and worked in Kolkata for seven years and have a bit of Bengali in my home too (wife Jaya Bachchan)... So yes it made things somewhat familiar!!”
