The much-awaited trailer of Amitabh Bachchan-Deepika Padukone-Irrfan Khan-starrer Piku was released on Wednesday evening.

Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Piku is the story of the relationship between a father-daughter duo played by Big B and Deepika.

In the trailer, Piku (Deepika) is a working woman who is also dealing with an ageing father who sends messages like, "semi-liquid motion first, then two days gas and constipation. What should I do?" to her office! This promises to be one of the most funny dad-daughter duo from Bollywood.

The trailer promises a sweet family drama where a young woman shoulders the responsibility of her '90-year-old kid' as Irrfan calls Amitabh in Piku.

Talking about the protagonist, played by Deepika, director Shoojit said at the trailer launch, "Piku is a girl like you, like any working person in a cosmopolitan city."

Deepika Padukone, who was also present at the event, said, "Piku is someone who I relate with, a lot. In fact she is very relatable for all women. Women are born to multitask. The situations in the film, too, I guess are something every one of us will identify with." Deepika further said that she agreed to do the film just after hearing the first scene.

At the trailer launch, Amitabh Bachchan said that working on the film made him miss his family a lot.

In an innovative style of promoting the trailer launch, Shoojit Sircar circulated a video on a chat application as well as online where Deepika asked parents of journalists and non-media people to meet the cast at the trailer launch of the film on March 25 at a Mumbai hotel.

The comedy-drama, that also features Moushumi Chatterjee, Akshay Oberoi and Jishu Sengupta in pivotal roles, is set to hit theatres on May 8.
