We recently watched the trailer of the upcoming movie Boss. Akshay Kumar seems to have left everyone impressed with the action-comedy packed teaser of the movie. Now we have something more to be excited about. The latest news is that Bollywood's legendary Amitabh Bachchan will be introducing Akshay's character in Boss.

This is huge thing for everyone including Akshay. "It's an honour and a privilege to have a legend like Amitabh Bachchan introduce my character in Boss. I've been his biggest fan since childhood and have even had the pleasure of working with him. He is an institution by himself," Akshay said.

The two actors have earlier worked together in movies like Khakee and Waqt: The Race Against Time. In the upcoming Boss, Akshay's character has a huge build-up before he makes an entry on screen and the makers always believed that no one other than the 70-year-old could do justice to the introduction of such a strong and larger-than-life character.

It is also said that Big B loved the idea of this introduction when he read the script. "I've known Big B for years now because of my journalism background. But more importantly, I've grown up on his films. Probably the reason why I am in movies today is because of him. When I called him and requested him to be a part of Boss, he agreed," said producer Ashwin Varde.

Despite Big B's schedule, we hear that he completed the dubbing at the earliest and he even improvised on some lines"It's like a dream come true - to have a legend like him giving an introduction to the film," he added.

Apart from Akshay, the movie also stars Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari, Danny Denzongpa, Ronit Roy and Johnny Lever. Boss is directed by Anthony D'Souza and set to release on October 16.
