Last week, the Bollywood Hungama website marked the release of ALADIN by organizing a Live Chat with legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Diana, from the Cinema Hindi team, was able to interact very briefly with him to discuss his motivation as an actor as well as a future film project. Here is what Bollywood's most famous actor had to say:
CH: You are the greatest actor in the world today. After having played so many different roles, what motivates you to choose one film rather than another?
AB: A (role) should have lots of challenge.
CH: Can you give us any updates regarding the filming of SHANTARAM?
AB: Mira Nair gave me the script but has not progressed further. I believe the film has been shelved.
SHANTARAM would be the film adaptation of Gregory David Roberts acclaimed novel and would possibly star Amitabh Bachchan and Johnny Depp, who has also bought the rights to it.
The entire live chat shall be available at the Bollywood Hungama website shortly.
