Kalki 2898 AD Director Nag Ashwin About Working With Amitabh Bachchan And Kamal Haasan

Lately, Director Ashwin gave an interview to Film Companion and shared his experience during the shoot of Kalki 2898 AD. When asked about how it felt directing Superstars like Amitabh and Kamal Haasan, Ashwin replied “I have no idea how to deal with Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan. I always found it very silly to try to tell them something about their acting or performance.

But, especially to Mr Bachchan Sir, because we started our  journey with him in this film. Like, the very first day of the shoot was with Amitabh Sir. I was just clueless and I think it had been a long time since I shot anything. It had been around 2-3 years and then the first person I had to direct was Amitabh Bachchan. I was like, “What am I gonna say? Maybe, Sir, a little slower?” It sounded silly”.

Ashwin said despite their status, both the superstars were open and receptive throughout the filming. The director added “What I realised down the lane with all of them was that they want to be part of the process, they want to be directed.

They don’t want to think that they know what they are doing. Especially, the bigger they are, like Bachchan Sir and Kamal Sir, they are more open to being valuable and having more ideas. They were even open to being directed. They don’t want to do what they have done before. They were like “Don’t make me Mr Bachchan or Mr Kamal Haasan, I don’t want to do that.”.

Ever since the project has been announced, the hype for the movie has only kept increasing with each update from the makers. The Trailer of the film has taken the Internet by Storm. Now, the makers have announced that they will be releasing “Bhairava Anthem” tomorrow. It is sung by Punjabi rapper and actor Diljit Dosanjh. This visually spectacular film will have a huge release on June 27.
