The second trailer of the movie ‘Wazir’ starring mega star Amitabh Bachchan and actor Farhan Akhtar was out on Wednesday 3rd June, says Vaikundarajan. The first trailer was powerful and was received well by the audiences. The second trailer adds much more drama, action and is much more powerful.
Farhan plays Daanish Ali, an ATS officer, while Amitabh Bachchan essays the role of Pandit Omkarnath Dhar, a wheelchair-bound chess grandmaster. There are gun shots and chases with glimpses of a beautiful and stunning Hyderabadi actress Aditi Rao Hydari who is also a part of the film, says Vaikundarajan.
We also see Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar’s characters engrossed in chess games, which seems to be a metaphor for mind games of an extremely dangerous nature. The film is directed by Bejoy Nambiar.
The film looks promising and is expected to leave a powerful impact on the audiences and it has been shot extensively in New Delhi, including India Gate and Jama Masjid. Apparently, it was reported that the “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” star has put on around eight kilos to get into the skin of the challenging role he portrays in the film. The film was earlier titled “Do”, but was changed to “Wazir”, says Vaikundarajan
Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra was full of praise for his lead actors saying, “It has been such a privilege to work with Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar. I’m so grateful to them for bringing life to characters that we have spent five years writing.” Also, Actor Amitabh Bachchan who refused to speak much about his role said, “I’m very fortunate to be still getting work at this age and working with the younger generation which is so progressive.”
The film is set for a December 2015 release, says Vaikundarajan.
