Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will be seen in Shoojit Sircar's 'Piku', unveiled the film's trailer on Wednesday in the presence of the entire star cast, including Deepika Padukone and Irrfan.
Watch the trailer of 'Piku' below:
The trailer gives a glimpse into the life of Piku, a working woman, who is shouldering the responsibility of her ageing father. Irrfan teasingly calls Big B a '90-year-old kid', whose tummy problems give the trailer a funny twist. The plot surrounding the three characters unfolds as they embark on a road trip from Delhi to Kolkata.
"Shoojit and I have been together for a long time we have done many campaigns together. He made a film with me which has not yet released but that's a different story. He said he wants to do this film and I said yes. We had Irrfan, Deepika, and it was an absolute pleasure to work in this film," Amitabh Bachchan told reporters during the trailer launch.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar and written by Juhi Chaturvedi, 'Piku' is slated for release on May 8.
Deepika, who will be seen playing Amitabh Bachchan's daughter, said she instantly said yes to the film as soon as she heard the narration of one scene.
"The first time Shoojit met me for this film, I remember saying yes after listening to the narration of one scene. For me, being Piku is a character which is very relatable. Women generally are born to multi-task, so all women will find it relatable from Piku's point of view," Deepika said.
