Big B is getting rave reviews for his performance as a washed out man who ends up lending his voice to a deaf and mute actor, played by Dhanush.
In ‘Piku’, the actor would be seen to play a middle class Bengali father with a paunch. He reunited with the director Shoojit Sircar after their unreleased film film ‘Johnny Walker’.
“‘Piku’ is a slice-of-life family drama. It is a middle class father’s role. Deepika (Padukone) is playing my daughter and Irfan is also there in the film. It is a Bengali home. I feel a lot of Bengalis would be able to identify with what is being said there,” Bachchan said about his role.
The actor made his fiction debut on television last year with ‘Yudh’. Though the finite series did not do well, Bachchan is open to working in the medium again. “‘Yudh’ did not do well. The whole idea with Anurag (Kashyap) was to do something different from ‘saas-bahu’ serials. We attempted something new and we will try again. I feel eventually it is where everything will go,” he said.
