MUMBAI — This topic has been on everyone’s minds ever since Amitabh Bachchan and presenter Shoojit Sircar raised the mysterious question “What is Pink?” on their social platforms, inviting a flurry of responses from all over the country. #WhatisPINK is now trending across the digital space.
Following the engaging conversation, Amitabh Bachchan unveiled the “Pink” motion logo Aug. 8 and announced the trailer launch, sparking curiosity among fans eager to know what his latest co-production (as per son Abhishek Bachchan), “Pink” is all about.
The “Pink” team finally ended the suspense with the trailer launch Aug. 9. Amitabh Bachchan, his co-stars Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi and Piyush Mishra, along with director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, producers Sircar, Ronnie Lahiri and Rashmi Sharma have made a thought-provoking film that raises pertinent questions in society. One of Amitabh Bachchan’s bolder roles (he plays an attorney), it also has Pannu in her most meaty role to date in a Hindi film.
The Sept. 16 release has music by Shantanu Moitra. So far, Sircar has always succeeded in comedies (“Vicky Donor, “Piku”) and never in his serious films (“Yahaan,” “Madras Café”), but this one looks to be an exception. The trailer whets your curiosity, and the cast is intriguing indeed. Yes, Sircar is not the director this time.
