And none was the wiser, because the native folks had no clue they had been interacting with Amitabh Bachchan!
Says Director Shoojit Sircar, “As we wished each scene to be completely genuine and actual, there have been many pictures located within the absolute coronary heart and congested streets of Hazratgang and Chowk, it’s fairly unbelievable to ponder capturing scenes there! We used to shoot within the tiny charming alleys and gully of outdated Lucknow….we might prepare…and attempt to end the shoots inside an hour or so, in order not to attract too many crowds within the small lanes. Only a few folks realized what was occurring and principally no one acknowledged Mr Bachchan, which was our goal. I didn’t need him to appear like Amitabh Bachchan within the movie, I wished him to look and sound like Mirza, and that was what we achieved. Sure, after our shoots wrapped, he would typically stroll round within the bylanes, chatting with the native folks and expertise town, with no one recognizing who he was!”
