Taking to his blog, the veteran actor wrote, “Amusingly, when the film ‘DON’ was announced with me ..
many in the world of Hindi cinema were quite unaware of the word don .. what they were familiar with was a product known as DAWN .. the DAWN banyaan .. vests .. And the market was very skeptical and annoyed with the makers as to why a film title should be about undergarments. Many still are.”
The actor, even at 80, is going strong and has his hands full. He will soon be seen in ‘Section 84’. Helmed by Ribhu Dasgupta, the film co-stars Diana Penty, Nimrat Kaur, and Abhishek Banerjee in lead roles.
Recently Nimrat penned down a long emotional note as she wrapped up the shooting of the courtroom drama.
Taking to Instagram, Nimrat shared a string of BTS pictures which she captioned, “No words will ever be adequate to explain what I felt before, between and after my two most favourite sounds – “action” and “cut” were called out on the #Section84 set since exactly 2 months ago today.”
“Like the last page of a book you never want to end, the last day brought with it a heady mix of gratitude, learnings for a lifetime, separation anxiety and a simple knowing that as an actor nothing can quite prepare you for sharing screen space with a once in many lifetimes force of nature, Mr. @amitabhbachchan. Everything can and should not be articulated. So my heart shall savour the best of it forever,” the caption further reads.
The official release date of ‘Section 84’ is still awaited.
