Amitabh Bachchan: Nana Patekar is brilliant
'RGV shows me a rough cut of his latest 'Attacks of 26/11' ... stunned, shocked, angered .. but choked with tears when ..! Nana Patekar is brilliant ... such restraint and maturity in his performance .. And the young actor that plays Kasab , so convincing,' he tweeted.
'I cannot fathom why I choked with tears after film was over, but I did .. that is the truth .. perhaps that the reason .. truth !! Was the emotion, content, honesty of performances, or was it just the inhumanity that resides in humans .. yes ! truth is painful ! There were times in the film when I wanted to stand up and SCREAM .. !! At other times silenced by its audacity .. !!' he added.
'Research on the film '26/11' has been infinitely precise .. the subjects shown have all been talked to in detail,' he added further.
Based on the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the film stars Nana Patekar as Rakesh Maria (Joint Commissioner of Police) and Sanjeev Jaiswal as Ajmal Kasab. It will release on March 1.
