Amitabh Bachchan, who will start shooting for his upcoming film ‘Brahmastra’, hopes director Ayan Mukherji, actors Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, whom he calls the “new generation” give him learning and educate him in the qualities that he lacks.
“Sleep induced, sleep deprived yet alive to be here and leave soon for the preparation for tomorrow… fresh new film, Brahmastra. The entire day was spent battling with the look for the film .. its a tedious job, sticking removing applying de applying and applying again, until some decision is reached,” he wrote on his blog, reports the Hindustan Times.
The 75-year-old star said that he appreciates the “meticulous planning” of the film’s director Mukerji and the production. “Such efforts were never seen in our time,” he added.
Bachchan also said, “May this fresh and new generation with whom I have the honour and pleasure of working, give me learning and educate me in the qualities that I lack.”
The star says that he first saw Mukerji as an Assistant Director to filmmaker Karan Johar on his film ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’ (2006). He also tweeted a slew of photographs rehearsing with Bhatt and Kapoor. He captioned the image, “It begins tomorrow Brahmastra and the prep started today .. Ranbir, Alia and moi under the baton of Ayan.”
The upcoming fantasy adventure trilogy titled ‘Brahmastra’ will be the first time that Bachchan, Bhatt and Kapoor will be joining hands for a project.
The first part of the trilogy will release on 15th August 2019.
