First look of Amitabh Bachchan in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku is out and knowing Big B’s penchant for getting into the skin of a character, his first look is no surprise.
The superstar who plays Deepika Padukone’s dad in the movie has grown his hair long and a big belly to look the part. The look is quirky yet adorable, somewhat similar to the shade and treatment of Piku.
Check out his pic from the film’s shoot here:
Piku directed by Shoojit Sircar is a slice-of-life cinema. A quirky roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh and Deepika, along with Irrfan in a pivotal author-backed role.
Shoojit Sircar of Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe fame, is all praise for his three main leads.
“Piku is a story that will warm your heart and make you smile! We have the best of the talent coming together for a refreshing tale of a father-daughter relationship. I am privileged to direct Mr. Bachchan along with Deepika and Irrfan. They are three powerhouse performers and it doesn’t get better than this for me,” says the director.

Produced by MSM Motion Pictures, in association with Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films, Piku also stars Bengali actors Moushumi Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta.It is slated for release on April 30th 2015.
