New Delhi: Actor-director Farhan Akhtar, who will be seen sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the film “Wazir”, says he was really excited and anxious to work with him in the forthcoming movie.
Asked if it was intimidating to work with Big B, Farhan told reporters here: “It was not intimidating. I was really excited (to work with him). So that was the predominant kind of emotion.”
“Anxious to a certain degree of course, because you kind of want to be there with him because you know what he is capable of doing. So just anxious about that. I think those were the two main things.”
Farhan, who directed the 73-year-old thespian in the 2004 war drama film “Lakshya”, says that he had an “out of body experience” on the “first day of shoot” with Amitabh.
The 41-year-old actor will be seen essaying the role of a tough Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) officer named Daanish Ali in “Wazir”.
Asked how different is this role from the others he has essayed, the “Dil Dhadakne Do” star said: “It’s a completely different part. It’s a completely different film. So you can’t compare.”
Directed by Bejoy Nambiar, “Wazir” is co-produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani.
The film also features Aditi Rao Hydari, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham in pivotal roles.
“Wazir” is slated to hit the screens on Friday.
