Bachchan has been seen around town in London and Dubai to promote his latest film, Shamitabh. Written and directed by R Balki, the Hindi film will be shown in UK cinemas from February 6, 2015.

Commenting on Shamitabh, Big B said: “It’s a story of two individuals who have different exceptional qualities and what happens when they come together. I give my voice to the character of Dhanush… an aspect of the film which was a first for me.”

The 72-year-old superstar enjoyed working with Balki and complimented the director’s creative approach. He said:

“Balki has a very intellectual, sensitive mind. He thinks differently and has always made stories that have not been the regular escapist fare that you see in Hindi cinema.

He played a businessman and mob boss Meyer Wolfsheim in the hugely successful musical drama, which starred Titanic heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and received numerous award nominations.
