Amitabh Bachchan to introduce Akshay`s character in `Boss`
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will do a voiceover and introduce actor Akshay Kumar`s character in his upcoming film `Boss`.
From the time the script was penned for `Boss`, the makers believed that no one other than Big B could do justice to introduce a strong and larger-than-life character portrayed by Akshay in the film.
When the script was sent to Bachchan, he loved the idea and immediately agreed to be a part of the movie.
"It is an honour and privilege to have a legend like Amitabh Bachchan to introduce my character in `Boss`. I have been his biggest fan since childhood and have even had the pleasure of working with him. He is an institution by himself," Akshay said in a statement here.
Bachchan was given a script of the scenes well in advance.
Despite his busy schedule, the veteran actor made it a point to complete the dubbing at the earliest and finished the job in 30 minutes.
"I have known Mr Bachchan for years now because of my journalism background. But more importantly, I have grown up on his films. The reason why I am in movies today is because of him. When I called him and requested him to be a part of `Boss`, he agreed.
It`s like a dream come true ? to have a legend like him giving an introduction to the film," producer Ashwin Varde said.
Directed by Anthony D`souza, the film hits the screens on October 16.
