‘Peepli Live’ Leaves Amitabh And Jaya Speechless
Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan
Aamir personally invited the senior Bachchan couple to the premier of his Friday released movie ‘Peepli Live’. After watching it, the Bachchans just became speechless and appreciated it a lot.
After watching the movie, Amitabh Bachchan was reminded of his birthplace, in a small village in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. It is a movie about farmer’s suicide and the subsequent response of media and politicians.
Amitabh writes on twitter, “Aamir invited Jaya and myself to view his film Peepli Live and then for dinner to his house. The film took me back to my place of birth and deposited me within the distinct atmosphere of my roots, and I loved that."
He further adds, “But apart from that, it was a superb film, even the wife loved it. And we all know how she is with her own brand of films.”
The actor couple is highly impressed with the movie and they further add, “The enactment of those times, the actors selected and the way they performed, all came to us in a heady mix by the end of the day... We talked about the film of course, but more than that whether such films should be made in abundance, whether we need to educate the masses, to entertain them and drive them away from the realities of life, or to succumb to the age old formula of escapism.”
Aamir, Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan had a great time overall and spoke a lot over dinner, Jaya and Kiran speaks fluent Bengali, so they enjoyed their company a lot.
