28 January,2015:Â Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan dismissed suggestion that his name has been incorporated in his upcoming movie â€˜Shamitabhâ€™ for creating some kind of sensation and described the film as a â€œnever before seenâ€ plot.
Amitabh Bachchan, who is in London to promote the film along with co-stars Dhanush and Akshara Haasan, said, â€œA lot of people have been intrigued by the title and feel that my name has been incorporated for some kind of sensation. That is quite untrue.â€
â€œThe title actually comes out of the script of the film. Itâ€™s a story of two individuals who have different exceptional qualities and what happens when they come together. I give my voice to the character of Dhanushâ€¦an aspect of the film which was a first for me,â€ explained Big B.
The actor described the film as a â€œnever before seenâ€ plot.
Writer-director R Balkiâ€™s â€˜Shamitabh will hit the screens around the world on February 6,
â€œBalki has a very intellectual, sensitive mind. He thinks differently and has always made stories that have not been the regular escapist fare that you see in Hindi cinema. And I can say with certain amount of confidence that this is a plot that has never been seen before at least in Indian cinema, even may be true for cinema worldwide.
â€œItâ€™s been a great joy to be able to live with his thought process,â€ said the 72-year-old actor, who has worked with Balki on two previous critically-acclaimed films â€“ â€˜Cheeni Kumâ€™ and â€˜Paaâ€™.
â€˜Shamitabhâ€™, which revolves around a film crazy village boyâ€™s rise to cinematic fame, has been described as an ode to Bachchanâ€˜s distinctive and deep baritone voice.
As part of the UK promotions for the film, the superstar will also be interacting with his social media fans directly at a special podcast event planned at the Apple store on Regent Street in central London tomorrow.
The recording as part of Appleâ€™s â€˜Meet the Filmmakerâ€™ series, will be made available to more than 800 million iTunes users around the world for free, the largest ever for an Indian film.
