The movie Piku , a roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone turned out to be more fun than expected , courtesy the warm equation the two actors shared on the sets.
While Deepika Padukone has often said that she considers Amitabh
Bachchan as a father figure in real life, Big B too has mentioned
that Deepika reminds him a lot of his real daughter Shweta. The
warm equation the two shared off-screen , reflected beautifully in
their on-screen chemistry. Now a picture from the sets of
Piku too shows yet another shade of their father-daughter
For a certain scene in the film, Amitabh Bachchan being the
perfectionist that he is, kept asking a lot of questions to
director Shoojit Sircar. Infact ,every time
Deepika attempted to rehearse her lines with Bachchan, he enjoyed
pulling her leg and went back to Shoojit with his queries.
Says Shoojit Sircar, "Mr. Bachchan succeeded in pulling
Deepika's leg. Every time Deepika was going to say her lines, he
would interrupt her and ask me questions about the scene. This
happened a few times till Deepika realized he was just having fun
at her expense, and that's when we caught this animated
The movie Piku also features Irrfan Khan who will be seen in a romantic relationship with Deepika Padukone. Piku is set to release on May 8th.
