How did she manage to get rescued by Amitabh Bachchan? Explains Leena Yadav, “Teen Patti"s script could have gone anywhere because of the tricky nature of the subject. On top of it, I wrote a lot of stuff, which left me in two minds. I wasn't able to decide the course of the script."
She goes on to add, “As I was finalizing the cast of the film, I approached Amitji to enact the role of Prof. Venkat Subramaniam. Luckily, he agreed, even though I was halfway through my script when I told him about this. Further, I also asked Amitji for his inputs in order to streamline the script. "
“He felt nice that the director was asking his inputs. His suggestions provided new dimensions to the story and were key to the development of the plot."
What were those crucial inputs? Leena mentions, “The inputs that I got from him were on the elements of greed and deception around which Teen Patti revolves. Besides that, I cannot divulge any more information."
