Actor Ashton Kutcher, who plays the lead role
in a biopic based on Steve Jobs, says he had a 'bizarre emotional
reaction' when the Apple co-founder expired in 2011. This special
connect helped the Hollywood actor portray the late tech wizard
with more authenticity in his upcoming biopic Jobs.
"When Steve Jobs passed away, I had this bizarre emotional
reaction and I didn't know what it was. I was like, 'Wow, why am I
so shook up about this?' And I started thinking about all the ways
my life was affected by this guy and began learning about him
anywhere and everywhere I could," Kutcher said in a statement.
Steven Paul Jobs, who died on October 5, 2011, was an American
entrepreneur, marketer, and inventor, who was the co-founder,
chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. The movie Jobs chronicles
his darkest days, biggest triumphs, his dreams, hopes and passions
and his aspiration to change the world, as well as question the
impossible. PVR Pictures will release this much-hyped biopic across
Indian theatres August 16.
