You don’t have to be a Bollywood buff to know (and love) Amitabh Bachchan. The man needs no introduction. However, turns out Big B’s PINK co-actor Andrea Tariang didn’t know who the actor was for the longest time! The Shillong based girl is originally a musician, and debuted in Bollywood with PINK. She plays one of the three women who face assault charges, after being molested by some men. The other two women are played by Taapsee Pannu and Kriti Kulhari.
Andrea said in an interview:
I said yes thinking if I do the film I will get some pocket money. I didn’t know who Amitabh Bachchan was, I had heard of his name. I don’t understand Hindi so I haven’t watched his films and then when I got to know that I will be working with THE Amitabh I started watching some of his films and my dad said he is a huge icon in Bollywood industry.”
We wonder how Big B reacted to this!
