Big B gets conscious when Jaya is on the set
After ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, the most cherished couple of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan will again be seen in a Bhojpuri film titled ‘Ganga Devi’ to be produced by Amitabh Bachchan’s make-up man Deepak Sawant. Amitabh Bachchan has been working with Jaya after a long time and he said that workplace changes when wife is on the set.
“When your wife is on the sets with you...your behavior changes. There are lots of restrictions...there is always a discipline on the sets. Or else the situation at home becomes tense...out of control,” Bachchan said jokingly at a promotional event of the film.
Directed by Abhishek Chaddha, 'Ganga Devi' speaks about reservation for women in elected bodies.
Bachchan, who plays the lead character said Sawant is like a member of his family. “I am glad that I am a part of this film. Deepak is like a family. I know him for 30-35 years. He is my make-up man and he takes care of my face. It was my duty to give him something in return. When he approached me for this film, without any hesitation I did it.”
Big B had also appeared in Sawant's previous Bhojpuri films including 'Ganga' and 'Gangotri' which did not do well at the box-office.
The film is slated for September 14 release.
