While all actors of the current generation consider it an honour to share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, the legend found himself honoured when he collaborated with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for TE3N.
When asked about his experience of working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who had once openly confessed his admiration for Amitabh Bachchan, the superstar actor told IndianExpress.com,”It’s the other way round. I am an admirer of his work.”
Elaborating on the joyous experience of working with Nawaz, Amitabh Bachchan said, “He had a small passing shot in Shoojit Sircar’s Shoebite which is ready but not yet released. I was so astonished at his talent that I asked Shoojit, ‘Where did you get him from? Give him something bigger to do. Why is he in just a passing shot?’ And look how wonderful he is today. Now I am working with him in TE3N which is a great honour for me.”

Amitabh Bachchan also went on to explain how working with someone who also happens to be his admirer has never come in his way of being professional while acting. “We are professionals and we go about doing our job professionally. If I have to slap somebody of whom I am a great admirer, I will do it if that has to be done in the scene. That’s the story and we as actors have to do it. I am happy that I got to work with an exceptional talent like him. It’s a great joy because with every new talent you get to learn something new,” averred Amitabh Bachchan.
