'Deepika Was Paid More Than Me'
"I dunno if this is relevant or not. Whether coz of circumstances this has happened but I can tell you one thing, in Piku, Deepika Padukone was paid more than me," told Big B to BL.
'I Have Lost My Price Tag"
"And that says two things - one that she is obviously more important than me and two I have lost my price tag coz I have been working for so long. Maybe I am not so important."
Big B On Women-centric Film
"But I think what's the harm? If the woman's character is that then it's okay. For example, everybody asked me if it's( Piku) is a woman centric film. I said why? Coz a woman has a stronger character that's why it's a woman centric film."
Why Not Man-centric Film?
"But there are many films with only heroes but that is not man centric film. So don't see a film like coz there's a woman's pic on the poster it's a woman centric film."
"Its' A Cinema"
"It's a cinema, a film a story. She maybe is the hero of the film and that's how you should see it," concluded Big B and we can't agree with him more!
Big B's Fun Talk
Did you know that during Piku promotion, Amitabh Bachchan had made a cute revelation that if he wants to play a romantic role opposite Deepika too. In fact, he regrets not been able to romance with other actresses of current era.
Big B's Unfulfilled Desire
During a recent media interaction, Big B was asked to reveal one of his unfulfilled desire as an actor to which Amitabh Bachchan candidly said, "Time is not on my side, so unfortunately when I see all the young talent, I want to be in every frame with them."
"I wish I could do romantic leads with some of the younger ladies like Katrina, Priyanka or Vidya, Deepika or Parineeti....with all of them."
Big B's Experience Working With Deepika In Piku:
"Having 'Deepika' as a daughter would be wonderful. Having Piku as a daughter would be in line with the story of the film. Annoying or difficult would have to be assessed when you see the film."
"But for the moment, let us just say it is a very evolved relationship. Father-daughter relationships in general are somewhat conservative. Or perhaps tend to be conservative."
"There is greater 'talk man to man' kind of attitude with a son, not often with a daughter. In this film, that notion has been challenged rather bravely I must say."
"There is debate and argument and disagreement and opinion, but deep down, there is understanding and empathy and breaking convention and a freedom, and respect for individual thought and comment, which is all rather endearing," had told Mr Bachchan while interacting with media.
