Megastar Amitabh Bachchan had recently penned a letter for his granddaughters Navya Naveli and Aaradhya Bachchan. In the much-discussed letter, the actor had imparted valuable life lessons to them.
Talking about the letter at an event, Mr Bachchan said that the letter had captured the essence of his latest release ‘Pink’. He said, “The letter was emotional. It addressed all daughters and granddaughters and I had such an immediate reaction from my own daughter and granddaughter. I got an immediate reaction from Navya and she said, ‘Nanu, I will exactly follow this’. My daughter said, ‘I have been trying to teach Navya for so many years and just through one letter, you have conveyed what I wanted to for so many years’. That had an immediate impact.”
He further added, “There were a lot of questions that was asked as to why I wrote that letter. I was asked if this was a deliberate promotional technique. You can look at it the way you want to. Let me tell you how we arrived at it. We were promoting the film but there were many interviews that we did and each one wanted to know what Pink is. We were unable to describe the content of the story without disclosing the story line because it was a thriller. Shoojit (co-producer Shoojit Sircar) said then why don’t we take the essence of the film and put it in the form of a letter and why don’t you write it to your granddaughters. It will be a nice gesture and it will be something that we will be able to convey to the audience without revealing the story. So what you saw in the letter was the essence of Pink.”
He feels it served the purpose. It worked as a good promotional device along with an emotional message to all the daughters and grandaughters.
‘Pink’ that speaks about women empowerment, also stars Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang. It has garnered a positive response at the box-office.
