Wondering what’s with the name ‘Piku?’ It’s a treat for the filmy buffs to catch veterans Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone share the screen for their upcoming movie ‘Piku’.
‘Piku’, by Shoojit Sircar is based on Satyajit Ray’s Bengali short film ‘Pikoo’ that explores a child’s take on his mother who is suspected to have an extra marital affair.
Deepika will be seen playing Piku, daughter of Amitabh Bachchan. Along with them, we will see Irrfan Khan, Jishu Sengupta and Moushmi Chatterjee in the movie. To keep it short, the movie could be described as a quirky kinky tale of a father and a daughter. The genre it falls under is a comic-drama.
Today Bollywood gets to its viewers some very lovable behind the scene moments from the movie. It gives the audience a great deal to expect from the movie. The movie is slowly coming into the public eye however it has geared up on social media platforms. Hashtags like #pikuthefilm #Piku and #waitingforpiku #YehPikukyaHai have been trending on twitter.
It is not for the first time that Big B is sharing the screen with younger actresses. We have seen his magic in movies like ‘Black’ and ‘Cheeni Kum’. In ‘Piku’, Big B will be seen in an altered avatar of an old man with huge fat glasses with extremely simple costume.
Deepika on the other hand will emit her beauty and this time she is going to keep it simple.
Recently the actors were spotted in Kolkatta where the film is based and currently shooting. ‘Piku’ brought together Shoojit Sircar, Ronnie Lahiri and Juhi Chaturvedi as a team once again.
