Dream come true to work with Big B, say `Teen Patti` debutant actors

Mumbai: The debutant actors of Bollywood flick `Teen Patti` feel that working with superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been a dream come true for them.

Directed by Leena Yadav and produced by Ambika Hinduja, `Teen Patti` tells the story of a mathematician (played by Amitabh Bachchan) who is trying to write a thesis on probability, and he relates it to the Indian card game of `Teen Patti`.

The film stars heavyweights like Amitabh Bachchan and Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, besides newcomers Dhruv Ganesh, Shraddha Kapoor, Siddharth Kher and Vaibhav Kapoor.

The younger actors said they were very excited to be working with thespians like Bachchan and Sir Ben for their debut film.

Debut actor Siddharth Kher said, "Working with all of them has been fantastic. Mr Bachchan, for me initially, to imagine doing a scene or a film with him, it was very far-fetched and challenging in the beginning, but as you started shooting with him, he just made all the nervousness over."

"Everything took a backseat. He made everything very comfortable. He took the step to break the ice with all four of us. So I guess that`s what really helped us to calm our nerves working with him," added Kher.

Meanwhile, Shraddha Kapoor, the daughter of Bollywood actor Shakti Kapoor seemed quite thrilled of her debut with the bigwigs of the industry.

Kapoor said, "It was just outstanding. The four of us are so lucky that we got that opportunity. It was a complete dream turning into reality."

"Sometimes, I feel that it`s still a dream, but it`s real that in our first film we got to work with such brilliant actors, like Mr Amitabh Bachchan is a legend, then Madhavan is a great actor, and the cherry on the cake was Sir Ben Kingsley," she added.

The film also stars Raima Sen, R Madhavan and Saira Mohan.

`Teen Patti` is an emotionally riveting and razor sharp thriller about greed, deception and giant feats of imagination.

The film is slated for release on February 12.
