Amitabh BachchanA movie close to Bachchan's heart

One of the things that inspired Amitabh Bachchan to produce Viruddh was the story of an elderly couple taking on the system.

Viruddh, directed by Mahesh Manjrekar , portrays the fight against the system by an elderly, middle class couple whose only son is murdered under mysterious circumstances and later wrongly accused of being a criminal.




According to Bachchan, son Abhishek told him about the script after Manjrekar discussed it with the younger actor while shooting for Run .

"It is a very topical film, which is different from the ordinary, glamorised and escapist commercial cinema that we usually see," says the Big B.

He also praised Manjrekar and commented on his unique style of direction, which made the film a unique experience. "I have always felt that directors who are actors know the exact craft and tempo of a scene, something that Mahesh Manjrekar amply represents."

This Friday will see the release of Bachchan's forthcoming movie Sarkar , in which he and Abhishek Bachchan have worked together for the first time in the role of a father and son. This is their second movie together after Bunty Aur Babli .
