In an interview with a daily portal, Taapsee also spoke about her experience of working with the superstar in Pink, she said, "It was an honour to work with him. After all, it’s just my third Hindi film. But I wasn’t intimated at all. I was excited, yes. I am not crazy about any movie star. Mr. Bachchan is an amazing and brilliant actor; everyone knows that. Yes, there was some pressure of performing well. I knew I have to be my best. I had to make sure I don’t stand out like a sore thumb in the frame with him and it may backfire. So I just decided not to think that I am acting opposite Amitabh Bachchan and just do my job. After that it was okay.”view original article
