Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is a perfectionist. He has the reputation of taking every scene of his film seriously. The Piku star is known to rehearse a single scene over fifteen times before the shooting call. But recently he shocked one and all when he fell asleep on the sets of his upcoming film ‘102 Not Out’.
Yes, Big B was shooting for a scene where he had to fall asleep, but he slept for real.
This fact was revealed by Amitabh on his blog. He wrote, “Sleep .. that mechanism that has been a constant in us all .. like taking in air to breathe and survive .. and the opportunity of catching up with its loss, on set is a gifted moment in the script .. rare .. but so welcome .. one actually goes to sleep, while the lighting and the action and the scene is being conducted .. such a delight .. And my sleep was genuine .. they actually had to come and wake me up to tell me that it was over…” wrote the actor. Isn’t this funny? We also want to know if Big B snored but maybe we will see that on screen.
Check out the picture of Big B dressed in simple kurta pyjama with socks and wore a monkey cap as he slept like a baby on the set.
‘102 Not Out’ stars Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. The film has Big B essaying the role of a 102-year-old daddy, while Rishi Kapoor will play his 75-year-old son. The Umesh Shukla directorial will hit screen on December 1.
