Shoojit Sircar’s Piku, a riotous account of a crazy, father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, turned out to be huge fun for all involved, in most part down to the warm equation the two actors shared on the sets. While Deepika has often said she sees Mr. Bachchan as a father figure in real life, Mr. Bachchan too has expressed that Deepika reminds him of his real daughter, Shweta.
Piku also shows yet another shade of their father-daughter equation. For a certain scene Mr. Bachchan, being the perfectionist that he is, kept asking a lot of questions of Shoojit. Infact, every time Deepika tried to rehearse her lines with him, he enjoyed pulling her leg and reverted back to Shoojit with further queries. Says Shoojit
“Mr. Bachchan succeeded in pulling Deepika’s leg. Every time Deepika was going to say her lines, he would interrupt her and ask me questions about the scene. This happened a few times till Deepika realised he was just having fun at her expense, and that’s when we caught this animated reaction.”
We can’t wait to see the father-daughter chemistry these two have on screen! Keep it locked for more updates on the cast of Piku!
