Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will be seen with his wife Jaya Bachchan in Bhojpuri film “Ganga Devi”, says there is lot of restriction when your wife is on the sets and he gets conscious in her presence.
“When your wife is on the sets with you, then your behaviour also changes, there are lots of restrictions, there is always a discipline on the sets or else when you go back home, the situation goes out of control,” a laughing Amitabh told reporters during the music launch of the film here Friday.
“I hope you all will promote ‘Ganga Devi’ and the audience likes it,” he added.
Amitabh played a key role in his makeup man-turned-producer Deepak Sawant’s film, which is about reservation for women in elected bodies.
He acted earlier in Bhojpuri “Ganga” and “Gangotri”, which did well at the box office. Amitabh says Sawant is like a family member.
“I am glad to be part of this film. Deepak is like family and when he approached me for this film, I did this film without any hesitation. I know him now for 30 to 35 years.”
“He is my makeup man, he takes care of my face and it was my duty to give him something in return. The best part of working with them (Sawant) is that they finish shooting for 30 to 35 scenes in a day so that I don’t have any problem.”
Produced by Sawant and directed by Abhishek Chaddha, “Ganga Devi” also features Dineshlal Yadav ‘Nirahua’, Pakhi Hegde, Girish Sharma, Awadhesh Mishra and Vinay Bihari. The music director is Madhukar Anand.
The film is slated for Sep 14 release.
