Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says his upcoming film “Wazir” has a special script and that he was blown away by it.
Farhan, who will be seen as an ATS officer in the Bejoy Nambiar directorial, said: “‘Lakshya’ had just released then and Vidhu (Vinod Chopra) happened to be there at the screening. He called me and said that he did not like the second half of ‘Lakshya’.”
“Since then I respect his honesty regarding movies he makes or any of his work. That time he informed about this script and he wanted my feedback on that. That was in 2004 and the next time I met him was in 2014. When I heard the script, I was blown away.”
Continuing about the screenplay, Farhan said that “Wazir”, whose trailer was unveiled on Wednesday, has a very special script.
“It moved me to my core as it is an emotional film. There is so much focus on the thrilling part or action scenes that people will really get into watching the film and it will make you think about the things in life that are important.”
“Wazir” also features Amitabh Bachchan, John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Aditi Rao Hydari in key roles.
Co-produced by Chopra, “Wazir” is set to hit the screens on January 8, 2016.
