When you have two powerhouse of talents like Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu together, expect fireworks to explode on-screen. The two actors are reuniting on the big screen after 'Pink' for Sujoy Ghosh's upcoming revenge-thriller Badla.
The makers have dropped the official trailer of the film. Amitabh Bachchan shared the video on his Twitter page and wrote, "Sach nazar ke saamne hai, par nazar jhooth par hai . Watch the twisted truth trapped in a web of lies in the #BadlaTrailer."
The trailer begins with Amitabh Bachchan's deep baritone voice, "Badla lena har baar sahi nahi hota, lekin maaf karna bhi har baar sahi nahi hota." Soon, you learnt that he plays a high-profile lawyer. On the other hand, Taapsee's character has been framed for a murder. What follows next is the search for the twisted truth which lies in a web of lies.
Reportedly, Taapsee has taken inspiration from Hollywood actress Kerry Washington for Badla. The actress had earlier said, "It's a character I have never done before so wanted to have an interesting look put together. She is a sharp and intimidating woman who dresses up in an extremely prim n proper way. Kerry Washington's look was a perfect reference point for us and if I can achieve something even close to hers I think we will be good."
Speaking about the film, she had said, "This is going to be a riveting thriller. It's Sujoy's favourite genre ... I am out of my comfort zone which I actually enjoy the most."
Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Badla is presented by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment, produced by Gauri Khan, Sunir Kheterpal and Akshai Puri. The film is slated to release on 8th March, 2019.
