Director-producer Bejoy Nambiar, who is set to direct Amitabh
Bachchan in his next thriller, finds the megastar "ridiculously
humble" for his stature.
"For the kind of person he is, he is overtly and ridiculously
humble. He makes you feel comfortable. In fact, the first thing he
did when we met was that he cracked a joke. I was completely taken
aback. he does not let stardom come in between," Bejoy said.
Bejoy, who last directed David and has produced the upcoming
supernatural thriller Pizza, will direct the untitled movie,
produced and written by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film also stars
Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hyadri.
The director, who will start the film in September this year,
said he is still waiting for the "fanboy" in him to get out and
look at Bachchan as an actor.
"I am in awe of him. I need to spend more time with him. I am
waiting to overcome my 'fanboyness'," he said. Pizza, a
remake of the hit Tamil film of the same name, marks the
directorial debut of Akshay Akkineni and stars Akshay Oberoi and
Parvathy Omanakuttan in lead roles.
