The upcoming TE3N, an emotional thriller starring Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, with Vidya Balan in a pivotal guest appearance, had a few scenes which required the presence of children in the film.
We hear that Amitabh Bachchan shot those scenes with not child actors but real children from Kolkatta, and that too the children from the Calcutta Deaf & Mute School! The makers decided to give a touch of authenticity to the film by shooting with actual children and chose the kids from the noble Calcutta Deaf & Mute school for the scenes.
The endearing children had a grand time shooting with the megastar, and we also hear that he spent quite some quality time interacting with them on the sets as is evident in these two sweet images we received. The superstar took many selfies and pics with the kids, signed autographs and even played football with them.
Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, and produced by Endemol India, Reliance Entertainment, Cinemaa Pictures, Kross Pictures and Blue Water Motion Pictures TE3N is slated for release on June 10.
