Big B Is Very Relaxed And Friendly: Shoojit Sircar

 Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has worked with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in multiple movies and commercials. He has revealed that he thinks the actor has the talent of making the atmosphere so relaxed and friendly that it doesn’t even feel like they are working.

"Shooting with him is more like having a fulfilling conversation with a friend, as we talk about movies, sports, books and all that's happening around the world. It never felt like work with him , although when he delivers a shot, it is always pitch perfect," Sircar explained.

The two most recently worked on movies such as Pink and Pihu. The two have once again joined hands for an advertisement which will feature Big B playing a Sikh army man. When asked about the commercial and how the role made him emotional, Shoojit said, "Mr. Bachchan told me that every time he gets to play a Sikh character, he remembers his mother, Teji Bachchan. His mother was Sikh and representative of the robust Punjabi culture.

"He feels that both his mother and his grand father would have been very proud to see him play a Sikh army man."
