The actor received ample praise, including from Resul Pookutty, over his 14-minute long scene in Chehre.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has always put his best foot forward for all his films. The actor, who will now be seen in Chehre with Emraan Hashmi, gave a 14-minute long take at a stretch and the crew was stumped by the performer’s talent.
Oscar-winning sound artiste Resul Pookutty took to social media to praise the star. “Today Amitabh Bachchan marked another history in Indian cinema. Last day, last shot of the first schedule of ‘Chehre‘… he performed a fourteen-minute long submission in one shot and the whole crew stood up and clapped! Dear Sir, undoubtedly you are one of the best in the world,” he wrote.
Reacting to Resul, Big B wrote, “Resul… you give me far too much credit than I deserve or am capable of.”
Adding to this Anand Pandit says, “I believe I am blessed to be a part of a film that has this historic scene. Giving a fourteen-minute shot is not only difficult but requires the dedication of a different kind. And add to it the way Amit ji delivered it with finesse. There was pin-drop silence on the sets followed by thunderous applause. He is legendary and inspiration for each one of us.”
Directed by Rumi Jaffrey, the film, which stars Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Raghubir Yadav and Annu Kapoor apart from Emraan, is slated to release on February 21, 2020.
