Gurfateh Pirzada of Guilty fame will soon be seen in a pivotal role in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead roles.
The film also stars the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, whom Pirzada shares the most screen time with.
Speaking about working with Big B, the young actor gushes, “Amitabh sir used to reveal stories about his life. When he had some free time, he would pick up songs from his films and would go to recording studious to sing them. He made me hear the songs that haven’t released yet. I was excited that at his age and at this level, he still works so hard. Why do we get tired so fast? It’s after working with Mr Amitabh Bachchan that I have decided to work as hard as him.”
Pirzada adds that the veteran actor is sharp as a tack.
“Amitabh sir takes note of everything while you are doing a scene with him. I remember in one scene while I had to give my cue, I looked at him, got intimidated, and had forgotten the cue. Amitabh sir, immediately said, ‘Eh, kya kar raha hai, cue de jaldi (Hey, what’re you doing? Give the cue quickly).’ The next moment I was comfortable and gave him the right cue. Such humility enables everyone to be comfortable while working with him,” he smiles.
Produced by Karan Johar, 'Brahmastra' was slated for release on December 4 but may be delayed if the coronavirus situation worsens.
