Actor Abhishek Bachchan says that he played the next character in Ludo, he didn’t know anything about his character or the proper script in a nutshell, as it led to the quirky, innocent world of director Anurag Basu. dark anthology connects crime with comedy and Anurag Basu’s charming, eccentric musical continues the fascination after 2012’s Barfi! And Jagga Jasoos(2017). In an interview with Zoom News Agency PTI, Abhishek Bachchan said that filmmaking is his strength to marry simply with Anurag Basu’s message. “There’s a quirky outlook to life which comes out in his films. He says something profound simply and innocently, through a particularly colored lens. It’s a pleasant experience. Anurag doesn’t make you realise the severity of what he has said to you, because he says it by putting a smile on your face. Which is the best and most efficient way to make a point.”
Ludo focuses on the inevitable crisis of life and follows four different stories, including Aditya Roy Kapoor, Shalini vats, Rajkumar Rao, Asha Negi, Pankaj Tripathi, Inayat Verma, Rohit Saraf, Pierre Manay, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanya Malhotra.
Abhishek Bachchan said that he made an immediate commitment to the project and also he recalled meeting Anurag Basu two years ago when he was in the planning stage of the film.
Ludo will be released on Netflix on November 12. in which Abhishek Bachchan will play the role of Bittu, whose life turns into a new leaf when he meets a six-year-old girl, Mini.
The Manmarziyan actor said that he was only told a “brief” basic story by Basu, “that too much later” and knew nothing about the character before the shooting.
He said, “I just showed up. I didn’t even know the character is a father. It was only during the time I would go to his office for fittings, he’d tell me bits and pieces about the story. But I am accustomed to working like that, so it wasn’t scary for me,”.
Said Abhishek Bachchan, who completed 20 years in the Hindi film industry in June, “It isn’t the first time I’ve worked like this. When I started my career, most of the work used to happen like this. I was comfortable doing that and in fact, I enjoy it when I can completely lean on my director and follow their instinct,”.
He said Ludo gave the actor a chance to break free from the standards of rehearsal and understand why Anurag Basu does not believe in giving more information to his actors.
After he added, “He doesn’t want to inhibit or shackle you in any direction. He tells you the situation and lets you interpret the way he wants. He gives an environment and looks for an unrehearsed response to a situation… The credit has to go to him for he never misplaced or mistreated the trust that we bestowed on him,”.
