Tough to work with Farhan, says Big B

MUMBAI: India’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has essayed complex roles effortlessly in his over four-decade career, says he has always found it tough to work with Bollywood actor-director Farhan Akhtar.

While Akhtar had directed Bachchan in Lakshya, he co-stars with the thespian in the forthcoming film Wazir.

Asked about the experience of working with Akhtar, who is over 30 years younger to him, Big B said, “It was tough for me to work under Farhan and it was tough for me to work with him as an actor. Farhan has grown up in front of me. It was just wonderful to be in his company.”

The 73-year-old said Akhtar also expressed his views as a director for Wazir, which is directed by Bejoy Nambiar.

“He was a director there (Lakshya) and an actor here (Wazir). But during the making of this film, there are points that he may have viewed as a director and brought it up… that’s very interesting,” Big B said.
