To act with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is every Indian actor's dream. But what's it like to live that dream, is a question that now actress Rashmika Mandanna gets to answer with pride.
During a press conference in New Delhi, which OTTplay was a part of, Rashmika was asked by several members of the media about her dream debut of working beside Amitabh Bachchan. To which, she coyly said that she had never imagined one day she would be standing next to the megastar. Acting with him, of course, is something she had never thought of.
"On the first day of the shoot, it was intimidating being in his presence. I felt so small in front of him and was like, 'Hi, how are you sir (joking about her height being in stark contrasdt to his)' and was nervous. But, I am like a sponge to all my co-stars and was soaking all of their talents in through observations. Like I mentioned before, I was a different person before Goodbye and a completely different person after it. Bachchan sir was just amazing to work with. I am extremely happy with Goodbye and how it has come out," she said about her co-star and the overall working experience with Big B.
When she was asked to mimic one of his dialogues, she laughed and said that she would rather not as the actor might see it on socials and ask her about being goofy. During the press conference, Rashmika also talked about Amitabh Bachchan's films and how Piku had deeply resonated with her.
Directed by Vikas Behl, Goodbye features Amitabh Bachchan and marks South Indian star Rashmika Mandanna's Bollywood debut. The family drama also features Shivin Narang, Neena Gupta, Ashish Vidyarthi, Sunil Grover and Pavail Gulati in pivotal roles, and is all set to release in theatres on October 7, 2022.
