Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan photographed in Mumbai.
Amitabh Bachchan said his Thugs of Hindostan co-star Aamir Khan can be called a “great actor,” but not him.
Mr Bachchan and the 51-year-old actor will be teaming up for the first time in the Yash Raj Films project.
“Aamir can be termed ‘great’, not me. I have enjoyed his performances and his films. He is an accomplished actor and a great star,” Mr Bachchan told PTI when asked about the two great actors coming together.
The film will be helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya who also directed Dhoom 3.
Besides this, the 73-year-old actor is also working on the third instalment of Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar franchise.
“Sarkar 3 begins from where the last outing ended, while the character of Subhash Nagre (played by Mr Bachchan) remains unchanged,” he said.
Meanwhile, on the announcement made by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, that his team (referring to production house Phantom Films) is planning to work with the Piku star, Mr Bachchan said he is clueless about any such development.
“Anurag Kashyap? No, I have not heard of any such venture. We talked a lot during the time I worked with him in Yudh and his short film, but nothing fructified,” he added.
