Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush, Akshara Haasan, R Balki at film Shamitabh trailer launchAfter “Paa”, Amitabh Bachchan and R. Balki teamed up together for their forthcoming venture “Shamitabh”. The movie also features Dhanush and will mark the Bollywood debut of Akshara Haasan. Big B says that he was intimated by the actress in the beginning as she came well prepared for her role.
At the trailer launch of the movie, when Akshara mentioned that she was initially intimidated on the sets to be working with Amitabh, but later, became comfortable, Big B said that she was the one who intimidated him, for she was so well prepared.
Big B has lent his voice to the song “Piddly” in the movie. The song features him sitting in a loo and singing using a shower as the mic. The megastar, showing off his little finger, playfully explained what Piddly is, and said, “It means that a person wants to go to the loo.”
He further said, “I have never learnt singing...gaane ke peeche Ilaiyaraaja jaise maharathi hain, aur unke saamne gaana gaane ki himmat nahi hui (Ilaiyaraaja is the one behind this song and I couldn’t sing infront of him), so I requested that I sing in my bathroom and that’s how it happened.”
“Shamitabh”, which will hit the screens on February 6, is said to be about an aspiring actor, who is a deaf and mute, and will see Big B lend his voice to Dhanush’s character. Throughout the trailer launch, the two stars were seen playfully arguing on who is Shamitabh, just to tease the media
