On June 10, the Power of Three will be unleashed as the formidable trio of exemplary actors in the shape of Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, with Vidya Balan, in a pivotal guest appearance, and will be seen together in Ribhu Dasgupta's emotional thriller ''TE3N''!
Well, this movie sparks many new things, specially for Nawazuddin, who not only is sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh, for the very first time, but he apparently even learnt Bengali! The atmosphere on the sets, in Kolkata was one of bonhomie, Bengali food and often a lot of conversations in the mellifluous language, as Ribhu, creative producer, Sujoy Ghosh, Vidya and Amitabh (both of whom know the language quite well), would discuss the activities of the day in Bengali...so much so, that Nawazuddin over the course of the shoot too, learnt Bengali well enough to hold a conversation, unwittingly!
Says a source, "Sujoy, Ribhu, Bachchan and Vidya, who feel quite at home in Kolkata, would often slip into Bengali phrases in their conversations. By the end of the shoot, Nawaz understood most of it and could speak quite well, helped by the actors."
Well, nothing like a film set that gives you so much to learn from! We are sure Big B and Vidya must have made for amazing teachers!
