The movie, which talks about the current condition of women in our country, is directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. While the movie is scheduled to release on the 16th of September, the makers organized a special screening of the film for the ladies of B-town. And since then, the cast of the film has been showered with appreciation on various social media platforms.
Bollywood In Awe Of Amitabh Bachchan’s Performance In Pink
Female celebrities have been praising the spectacular performance by Amitabh Bachchan. Interestingly, when producer Shoojit Sircar was quizzed about having Senior Bachchan on board, he revealed that the veteran actor gave his nod to the script in just 5 minutes of the narration. Shoojit says that he was apprehensive about the actor’s response and just took the chance of asking him. However, because of the trust factor that has been built between the two after Piku, Bachchan said a yes.
The Vicky Donor director went on to say that he believed in challenging the brilliant actor in every film. In both their previous collaborations, Shoebite and Piku, he was challenged as an actor. Hence, Sircar felt the need to do the same in this film. In Pink, the actor will be portraying the part of a gritty lawyer who doesn’t mince his words.

After Mr. Bachchan was brought on board, Shoojit had to rework on how he had framed out his character. Since the legend had placed his trust in the filmmaker, it became his responsibility to not let him down. Plus, since the subject is so serious, it was immensely necessary that the film is handled well. Shoojit also said that he admires the actor because of his level of discipline and enthusiasm.
