Big B, who will be seen in a different look in this film, said, "For this film we have tried different looks and some international makeup artistes have worked together for this look. We have worked really hard for this film. My makeup artist Deepak Sawant has also worked on my look."
Although the trailer is more than two minutes long it doesn't reveal much about the storyline. The film's audio trailer which was out earlier was an innovative idea and now the trailer launch has increased the curiosity of both Dhanush and Amitabh's fans.
The last two letters of actor DhanuSH and Amitabh makes the name Shamitabh. Amitabh says in the trailer, ""It's not picture, it's mixture."
R Balki's earlier association with Amitabh Bachchan were with films like Cheeni Kum and Paa. Shamitabh marks the debut of Southern star Kamal Haasan's daughter Akshara Haasan.
Amitabh said, "Balki always comes with some interesting scripts. He always comes up with very different stories like 'Paa' and 'Cheeni Kum' and surprises me."
Shamitabh music is composed by Ilaiyaraaja and the film will release on February 6, 2015.
