Amitabh Bachchan will introduce Akshay's character in 'Boss'. Here's more


When two superstars get together, the result is bound to be nothing short than spectacular. Akshay Kumar’s new film 'Boss', has been getting a lot of attention since the time the film’s trailer was launched a few days ago. Now, the makers have added another trump card to the movie.
 
Few days back, they managed to get none other than Amitabh Bachchan to do the complete voice over for the film and to also introduce the character of Boss in the movie. It’s no secret that Akshay has been a huge Bachchan fan over the years. In fact, he was the first actor to say that when it comes to the No. 1 title, it’s only been Amitabh Bachchan who’s been the crown king for so many years.
 
In the film, Akshay’s character has a huge build-up before he makes an entry on screen. That build-up is done through a voice over that introduces the character.From the time the script was penned, the makers always believed that no one other than Amitabh Bachchan could do justice to the introduction of such a strong and larger-than-life character. It was important also because the voice over propels the film from the first reel and sets the tone for the entire movie. When the script was sent to Bachchan, he loved the idea and immediately agreed to be a part of the movie. Now, the makers are more than pleased because they couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Akshay has been an Amitabh fan for years now. The actor was most happy when he learnt that Bachchan had become a part of his new film. Says Akshay, “It’s an honor and a privilege to have a legend like Amitabh Bachchan introduce my character. I’ve been his biggest fan since childhood and have even had the pleasure of working with him. He is an institution by himself.”

Bachchan was given a script of the scenes well in advance. And despite his busy schedule, he made it a point to complete the dubbing at the earliest. He came sharp at 8.30am to BR Dubbing Theater in Juhu, Mumbai, and finished the job in 30 minutes flat. He also improvised on the lines, much to the delight of the film’s makers.

Producer Ashwin Varde says, “I’ve known Mr. Bachchan for years now because of my journalism background. But more importantly, I’ve grown up on his films. Probably the reason why I am in movies today is because of him. When I called him and requested him to be a part of BOSS, he agreed. It’s like a dream come true – to have a legend like him giving an introduction to the film.”
