After Shoojit Sircar’s courtroom drama Pink, Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu are reuniting for Sujoy Ghosh’s next. Produced by Sunir Kheterpal, the film is tentatively titled Badla and is an official remake of the 2016 Spanish film, Contratiempo, also known as The Invisible Guest.
In further developments, a report in a leading daily also claims that the film will begin shooting as early as the second week of June. A source close to the film also spoke about the same with the leading daily. He said, “It is a month-long schedule and they will be filming in London and Scotland. The film is a murder mystery which revolves around the duo and Taapsee’s love interest who is a businessman.”
In an interview with a daily portal, Taapsee also spoke about her experience of working with the superstar in Pink, she said, “It was an honour to work with him. After all, it’s just my third Hindi film. But I wasn’t intimated at all. I was excited, yes. I am not crazy about any movie star. Mr. Bachchan is an amazing and brilliant actor; everyone knows that. Yes, there was some pressure of performing well. I knew I have to be my best. I had to make sure I don’t stand out like a sore thumb in the frame with him and it may backfire. So I just decided not to think that I am acting opposite Amitabh Bachchan and just do my job. After that it was okay.”
