Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchanhas shared a black-and-white sketch of R Balki’s upcoming film Shamitabh on his blog. The 72-year-old sports a pensive look with heavy beard in the sketch.
“Yes… Notice the ‘Balki nisation’ of the Blog, as in the years within the Balkans… hehehe… Some times its good to laugh at one’s own stupidity .. I just presented a sample .. !” he captioned the sketch. Bachchan, who was in Kolkata for Shoojit Sircar’s Piku, co-starring Deepika Padukone, is off to Gujarat for the shooting of Shamitabh.
“It’s departure time in the morrow and more of the film that Balki asked me not to talk or print about, in the extensive lanes of Gujarat, away from the hurly-burly…” he posted.
The actor posted a poem along with his Shamitabh look. The film also stars Dhanush and Tamil cinema star Kamal Haasan’s daughter Akshara in her debut. Bachchan has previously worked with Balki in Cheeni Kum (2007) and Paa (2009).
