Shoojit Sircar is in news these days because of his next film Pink. In a recent interview, he revealed that Amitabh Bachchan is an intelligent actor as he said 'yes' to the movie in just five minutes.
Director-producer Shoojit Sircar told Indian Express, "We were thinking about whom to cast in this lawyer role. Meanwhile, Piku was about to complete. So we were discussing why not cast Amitabh Bachchan in this role. I messaged him about the film and told him that I want to cast him in this lawyer's role and said I think he should be part of it. Amitabh Bachchan is an intelligent actor. He just heard five minutes of the narration and said let's shoot.''
Talking about the script of the movie, he said, "Ritiesh (Shah) is the spine of the script. The casting of the girls was not hard but to define the characters was difficult. How to conceive the characters and how a working girl in Delhi faces different situations, how a lawyer argues in session court, all these things had to be created. I would give all credits to the writer."
"Pink is hard-hitting. Therefore, when one line was narrated to us, we thought this is a very apt film to be set in Delhi. My most films are based on this city and as I have stayed in Delhi, I know the place and the people well. Pink is an important film for our generation and we think it is the time to initiate a debate on this," he said.
