Is Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Pink’ is inspired by Nirbhaya case? Here’s what the producer has to say
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming movie ‘Pink’ has become the talk of the town ever since a thrilling and gritty trailer has been unveiled.
The film's trailer suggests a legal fight with Big B playing the role of a lawyer. Soon there were speculations if the movie has something to do with the 2012 Nirbhaya case of Delhi.
However, producer Shoojit Sircar denied the reports. He said, "No, it's not an inspiration. But the Nirbhaya is really a scar in our heart, in our mind and in our legal system. Yes, we went through that case, we went through compartments of that case. But 'Pink' is not inspired by Nirbhaya case and you will all relate to it somewhere”.
The movie will feature Amitabh Bachchan delivering some harsh and embarrassing dialogues
"My lines are going to be supportive of the legal arguments of the legal track. When you see the film, perhaps you will feel it is just right. I thought it was just important to say.
"The lines are harsh, they are embarrassing... There are objections that are raised by the judge and opposition, but eventually the kind of language that is used is taken in order to justify the event."
Big B said the research for the character was majorly done by the film's writer and Sircar.
"I have actually never been inside the court. Thankfully, I never had to. During the time of the Bofors allegation, I entered a court in London to defend myself. That's the only time I have seen the court.
"I really went by whatever research was done and told to us by the writer and Shoojit."
Directed by Aniruddha Rpy Chowdhury, ‘Pink’ also stars Taapsee Pannu in a key role. The movie will hit the theatres on September 16.
