Shoojit Sircar who is known for his different movies in Bollywood like Piku and Vicky Donor is ready with his new film Pink with Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu.
The movie is based on a rape case and Big B is seen playing the part of a Lawyer. Taapsee Pannu plays the victim along with Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Taring.
Although there is a lot of research done on Nirbhaya but Pink is not based on the Nirbhaya case. “Nirbhaya is a scar on our hearts and minds & legal system. We went through all the aspects of the Nirbhaya case” Shoojit sircar at the trailer launch of Pink.
Amitabh was also seen supporting education as he feels that is the remedy to such issues in India “The base is somewhere we are losing respect for the female gender. And that can be remedied through education, and through films like Pink to give them the respect and honor and their right place in the society. That’s what we are all working towards. It will take time but it will happen.”
Amitabh Bachchan’s acting and the concept of the movie has set high expectations for the audience. The movie will hit the theatres on 16th September.
