Amitabh Bachchan looks more than a little eccentric in the first look of Piku, the film that stars Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Moushumi Chatterjee and Bengali star Jisshu Sengupta.
In the picture released officially by makers, a pot-bellied Mr. Bachchan is dressed in a checked over shirt and wears an angler’s hat from beneath which longish silver locks peep out.
Mr. Bachchan has often experimented with his look on-screen in various films. Amitabh Bachchan who plays Deepika Padukone’s dad in the movie looks quirky yet adorable, somewhat similar to the shade and treatment of Piku.
“What makes the process of filming Piku extremely enjoyable is that it is helmed by Shoojit Sircar and also stars the immensely talented Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. The film has an interesting story and there is a lot of excitement on the sets.” states Mr. Bachchan.
Piku directed by Shoojit Sircar is a slice of life cinema and is a quirky roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship.
Shoojit Sircar of Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe fame, is all praise for his three main leads.
“Piku is a story that will warm your heart and make you smile! We have the best of the talent coming together for a refreshing tale of a father-daughter relationship. I am privileged to direct Mr. Bachchan along with Deepika and Irrfan. They are three powerhouse performers and it doesn’t get better than this for me,” informs Shoojit Sircar.
The film is currently being shot in Kolkata. Besides Kolkata, the film will also be shot in Delhi and parts of Gujarat.
Produced by MSM Motion Pictures, in association with Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films, Piku is slated for release on April 30, 2015.
