Amitabh Bachchan confirmed for cameo in Kajol’s Helicopter Eela, will play himself
Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in a guest appearance in Kajol's upcoming movie Helicopter Eela!. Kajol and Bachchan are reuniting after their 2001 family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
The film directed by Pradeep Sarkar, will see Bachchan playing himself. "There is a particular scene for which we needed him, so we requested him to play this part. It is an important scene and Mr Bachchan agreed to do this since he has worked with me before and is also close to Ajay and Kajol," Sarkar said in a statement.
The film that deals with parenting and generation gap, will have Kajol essaying the role of a single mother to National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen. Speaking at the film’s trailer launch, Kajol said, “My mother has always told me that if you work on your birthday, you will work the whole year round. On my birthday, I feel I am the queen of the world.” Mother to teenaged Nysa and son Yug, Kajol said, “I have to say I look damn good for a mother of a 15-year-old daughter.” On a serious note, she added, “When Nysa was born, I went to my mom and told her, ‘I didn’t know how much you loved me’.”
The film also features Neha Dhupia and Tota Roy Chowdhury and is produced by Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada. It is set to release on September 7.
