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.
