Famed Bollywood Legend actor Amitabh Bachan has reportedly turned down the role of Pakistani protagonist in Resul Pookutty’s directorial debut.
According to Indian Television and Social Media media, the ‘Badla’ actor has refused to do the role because he doesn’t want himself to be called as (anti-nationalist).
Big B Amitabh Bachan was initially very excited about the script, which talked about peace between the two countries India and Pakistan but recent skirmishes forced him to have a second thought on the project.
Many Indian Bollywood actors had faced wrath of Hindu extremists for speaking peace with Pakistan or supporting artists from across the Country.
It is always a tough call for Bollywood celebrities and Superstars when it is about Pakistan and most of them succumb to the pressure of extremist elements there and Big B Amitabh Bachan is no exception.
