Amitabh Bachchan excited about TV show with Anurag Kashyap

We want to do something different on TV: Big B

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan says a lot of brainstorming has gone into the creative aspect of his upcoming fiction show on TV, to be directed by Anurag Kashyap.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will soon be seen acting in a television show that he is co-producing, says his creative team wants to make something different but refuses to divulge anything about the storyline.

"There are many shows running on TV at the moment but we want to give a different kind of story to this one. We want to put it out there and see the reaction. It is premature to talk about the story right now," he said while announcing the show at a press conference here Wednesday.

The name of the show has not been decided yet but will star Amitabh Bachchan and will be directed by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. The show will be aired on Sony and has been produced by Bachchan's company Saraswati Creations in collaboration with Endemol India.

Responding to a question as to how he came on board, Bachchan said that he had been wondering for a while if it would be appropriate to act in a fiction show on TV.

"It has been a long journey. With each enterprise I feel what can be done next. I have been wondering for a while if working in a serial would be appropriate," he said.

The actor, however, added that he had a desire to work with Anurag Kashyap.

"We are in the process of constructing the show. I always had the desire to work with Anurag Kashyap. I am very appreciative of his work," he said.

Amitabh Bachchan said that a natural pressure comes with every new venture.

"Honestly, we have been working on it for six months which is a long time. Whenever you do something novel there is pressure and anxiety which comes with it. We have had debates, discussions and arguments," he said.

"We have reached a stage where we have found and discovered that this is what we want to make. Everyone is in agreement. Now it is time for us to get down to working," he added.

Talking about television as a medium, he said he does not want to compare with the west.

"We don't want to compare ourselves with the west. We want to do something individual and get the west to admire it," he said.

Bachchan also added that he kept his decision to come in a fiction show away from his family as well.

"When I was going to do KBC, everyone said it was a mistake. They said it would reduce my stature. In a couple of months I will be 71, no stature is left now. I want to do what I have not done before. I kept mentioning it to my family but they didn't ask much. I hope they maintain the same protocol," he said.
