Abhishek Gets Embarrassed
Junior Bacchan will again make his presence on the silver screen with his upcoming movie ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ based on the uprising for freedom by the Chittagong gang, but the actor says that he was ignorant about such a big episode of freedom fighting and he is embarrassed for that.
The actor adds, “I was embarrassed because as an Indian citizen I didn`t know about Surjya Sen, the great Chittagong uprising and these great freedom fighters who laid their lives for our freedom. I felt the story should be told at a wider scale.”
He also quotes the reasons for picking up the role, “I did `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey` because I wanted to pay tribute to the freedom fighters of our country. Very little is known about the Chittagong uprising and when I got to know about it, I felt it was a story worth telling. It is Ashutosh and my small way of paying tribute to some great people involved in this revolution.”
The movie is based on journalist Manini Chatterjee`s book "Do and Die: The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34". It is the chapter in history against the British for freedom fighting.
The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and it will hit the screens soon. The movie will also decide the future career growth for Abhishek as his last movie ‘Raavan’ was a dud.
