I don’t believe in ghosts, I only believe in God: Amitabh

16/3/2008. The first look of Ravi Chopra’s much awaited Bhoothnath was unveiled at Cinemax in Versova, Mumbai on Saturday. At the event, Amitabh Bachchan spoke about the film and also spilled some other beans in the process.

Why Bhoothnath? 

“I and Kuku (Ravi Chopra) are very old friends. He used to often come to me with this ‘ghost’ story but I never showed much interest. At one point I even said no but then the director Vivek Sharma started crying so I took an emotional decision and said yes. It was a very nostalgic experience shooting for the film.” 

How similar is your look in the film to Babban (Gabbar of RGV’s Sholay)? 

“It has been one and a half years now so please stop asking me about Babban. My look in the film is very dusky. I have worn shabby clothes and put on weight as well. My nails are also very long and ragged.”

Do you believe in ghosts? 

“No. I don’t believe in ghosts. I don’t know how he looks so I was not confident but Vivek was so may be has seen a ghost. I only believe in God that’s why I am standing here.” 

You have performed some dare devil stunts for the film. How was the experience and will you allow Abhishek to do such stunts? 

“When I started off my career performing stunts was very dangerous but now it has become very easy thanks to the use of cranes, wires etc. But I would still not allow Abhishek to carry off such stunts. I am just too possessive about him.” 

How difficult is it working with kids? 

“It’s a big challenge. Kids are very fast and we have to constantly compete with them. But I have worked with Aman Siddiqui before in many ads and also in Baghban so there was a very good comfort level. He is very committed. At times he was running high fever but he still used to shoot. He is a very bright kid and used to remember lines after just one reading.” 

And what about SRK? 

“We have done many films together. He is a very dedicated actor and it’s always good working with him. He has a small role in the film but a good one. We had a nice time shooting and used to play games and chat during our free time. I wish he was here for the event.” 

BOOTHNATH is a story of a deceased grandfather with his grandson. It stars Amitabh Bachchan, Juhi Chawla, Rajpal Yadav, Satish Shah, Aman Siddiqui and Tejas are two main kids. King Khan will be seen playing a cameo (a special appearance) in BHOOTHNATH along with Big B thus putting an end to the much hyped cold war between him and Big B. For the first time BR Chopra banner have hired Vivek Sharma to direct BHOOTHNATH. After hits like Dard-e- Disco and many others the Vishal Shekar duo will be giving the music for BHOOTHNATH. The movie will be released on 9th May 2008.
