This special occasion was witnessed on the sets of Shoojit Sircar's Piku in Kolkata recently. The city of joy was abuzz with excitement as the Prince of Kolkata, cricketer Sourav Ganguly, met Amitabh Bachchan. Sourav dada was accompanied by his wife Dona Ganguly. Both self confessed Bachchan fans were delighted for a chance to interact with him.
Sourav Ganguly wished to meet his favourite star as soon as he knew the actor was in the city for the film's shoot. Having met on several occasions earlier too, the couple couldn't contain their enthusiasm during the visit. The well known cricketer wore a white polo shirt with denims while Dona looked graceful in a traditional Bengali sari. Bachchan Senior was in his Piku look, with a Nehru jacket and a pot belly.
According to a member of the unit, "The couple was very glad to have met their favourite star. They had a great time together speaking about his character and the movie. Amit ji played a perfect host for Sourav and Dona and also interacted briefly with the film crew."
Piku is a roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone with Irrfan Khan top lining the cast, in a pivotal author backed role. Piku also marks coming together of Shoojit Sircar, Ronnie Lahiri and Juhi Chaturvedi, the team that had scripted Vicky Donor.
Produced by MSM Motion Pictures (a division of Sony Entertainment Network), in association with Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films, Piku will release worldwide on April 30, 2015.
