If it was PK earlier, it is Piku now!
This story of a Bong girl living in Delhi with her father has elated a huge response since its release last Friday. There are outpouring wows, ooohss and bravos about the movie and the responses are true in every sense. It pulls at your heart strings, triggers questions and speaks to your mind that you will definitely fall in love with this adorable movie. Here, we collate few interesting facts about the movie.
Shoojit Sircar, the Vicky Donor fame has directed this flick. It seems he has ‘flicked’ his own life for this movie!
You get to watch the cutest Amitabh Bachchan in the movie, depicting a 70-year old father Bhaskor Banerji aka Baba residing in CR Park in Delhi. Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, who plays the daughter Piku are known for their heights and guess what?, By acting in Piku, Deepz became the tallest heroine acted with Big B.
Another interesting twist to this height-saga is that Deepika somehow ended up resembling Bachchan’s daughter Shweta in her heights and looks. Is that the reason why Deepika was chosen for the role? Perhaps, yes!
The title of the movie itself is cute and if you wonder, from where this name has come from, it is all the way from Satyajit Ray’s Pikoo’s Diary. The movie is a dedication to Mr. Ray.
For being Piku, the charming actress Parineeti Chopra had been approached, but she turned down the movie due to date issues and also on grounds that she is already performing a similar role with Anupam Kher in another film.
