Amitabh Bachchan, who is known for his oratory skills, has always been the first choice of filmmakers when it comes to voiceovers in films and now, the actor is ready to give yet another voice over again for a film. While Mr. Bachchan will be doing the same in the upcoming superhero film Krrish 3, he will also be introducing characters in the Akshay Kumar‘s action flick Boss.
Big B who has previously worked with Akshay in films like Waqt, Aankhen, Ek Rishta, Family – Ties of Blood will now give massive introductory build up for Akki’s character in Boss. Producer Ashwin Varde said, “I’ve known Mr. Bachchan for years now because of my journalism background. But more importantly, I’ve grown up on his films. Probably the reason why I am in movies today is because of him. When I called him and requested him to be a part of Boss, he agreed. It’s like a dream come true – to have a legend like him giving an introduction to the film.” Bachchan too seemed pretty excited about the film and despite his busy schedule, he not only agreed to do it but also finished the job in 30 mins.
Akshay has been an Amitabh fan for years now. The actor was most happy when he learnt that Bachchan had become a part of his new film. Akshay said, “It’s an honor and a privilege to have a legend like Amitabh Bachchan introduce my character in Boss. I’ve been his biggest fan since childhood and have even had the pleasure of working with him. He is an institution by himself.”
Boss is produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Cape Of Good Films and Ashwin Varde Productions and is directed by Anthony D’souza. The film also stars Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari, Mithun Chakraborty, Danny Dezongpa, Ronit Roy and is slated to release on October 16.
