Tony Luke said, “I was suppose to begin shooting from June 14 though the film hit the floors a few days earlier. Bachchan Sir was already on the sets doing his scenes. All his scenes with Taapsee were shot then. I arrived in Scotland around June 7. Around June 9-10th, ready on the sets doing his scenes. All his scenes with Taapsee were shot then. I arrived in Scotland around June 7. Around June 9-10th, Sujoy Sir asked me to come to the sets and watch Mr. Bachchan perform on the sets.
The first time I met him face-to-face, I was with Sunil Kheterpal whom I fondly call ‘Big Boss’. He was the one who actually found my photo and suggested my name to Sujoy. I was standing with him and talking while I was watching Bachchan Sir. I could see him discussing with Sujoy Sir and joke with the stylist. I was standing there watching him for half hour with Sunil Sir by my side.
Then, I was looking at my shoes for around two seconds. When I looked up, I found Bachchan Sir standing right in front of him. (laughs)
With a smile on his face in his baritone voice, he wished me, ‘Hello’. I replied back, ‘Hello Sir’. To that, he said, ‘Welcome to Badla’. (laughs) He wished me luck. He was very kind. That’s one moment which I would cherish throughout my life.
We didn’t exchange any acting tips as such. I believe acting is all about observation. You don’t have to tell anything. By just watching Bachchan Sir perform, I learned some of the things. So, it was all about warmth, kindness, and fun on the sets. (Source: FilmiBeat)
