Amitabh Bachchan moved into tears
Gauri Shinde’s ‘English Vinglish’ left megastar Amitabh Bachchan in tears. Big B got emotional during the screening of ‘English Vinglish’. The concept of the movie touched him so much that his eyes got moist.
The film marks the comeback of the successful actress of 80’s Sridevi after a gap of fifteen years and also has Big B playing a cameo in the movie.
"A viewing of 'English Vinglish' directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R Balki tonight, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts.
"And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all...," Bachchan, 69, wrote on his blog.
The film is about a housewife who enrolls in an English speaking class in order to impress her husband and family.
"In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords.
"...Many do it with the ease of a breath taken deeply and exhaled with silent confidence. For me that was the moment in Gauri's film tonight. It said so much in so little!!," added Bachchan, who acted opposite Sridevi in 'Khuda Gawah' (1992).
The film is slated to release in October 5.
