Amitabh Bachchan refuses to portray Pakistani role in Resul's directorial
In actual BigB Amitabh Bachchan has to play Pakistani Hero in Oscar Awardee Resul Pookutty’s debut directorial debut movie. As the relations between India and Pakistan been magnified BigB refuses to portray Pakistani role in this particular subject.
Resul was in talks with BigB regarding this project for a couple of years. Indeed BigB loved the script and also the end message this Indo-Pak subject. As BigB was very busy another project as the dates were not available to kick off the project immediately. Resul delayed the project and waited for BigB's arrival. When all the things have fallen in place and ready to start the project, the relations between the two neighboring countries had inflamed which hit Amitabh Bachchan in dilemma to be part of this project.
Why trigger controversy by featuring in this movie which involves rigorous points and put himself in the most ridiculous position. This may also lead to portraying Amitabh as anti-national by hate parties. Hence Amitabh opts to come out this project.
