For filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh, Amitabh Bachchan is as essential to his cinema as the air he breathes. But Kahaani 2 which opens next month doesn’t seem to have room for the Big B.
“Kya karoon? I cannot think of making a film without Sir (Mr Bachchan). When I directed Aladdin, Sir starred in it. He sang ‘Ekle Chalo Re’ for my Kahaani. He starred in Te3n which I produced. He is not in the cast of Kahaani2. But I’ve to find a way of including him in my film. Otherwise it doesn’t seem complete.”
Sujoy feels it is important to ensure the Big B is not misused in cinema. “I know he loves me so much that he’d do anything I ask him to in Kahaani 2. Which is exactly why I need to make sure I don’t compromise him in any way.”
