Bollywood movie Paa will see real live father-son duo of Amitabh-Abhishek will do a role reversal and play son-father roles. Amitabh Bachchan will be seen as Auro, a 13 year old son of Abhishek Bachchan.
Auro suffers from a rare disease called progeria, which forces rapid growth. Hence, Auro looks five times older than his age.
The movie will open to worldwide audiences in across 700 screens on Friday, 4th Dec09. In India, a mega event if sorts will be witnessed in Mumbai, as superstars Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are supposed to be at the premier event of the movie.
The Makeup of Amitabh as Auro in Paa:
Christien Tinsley, who was involved in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Memoirs Of A Geisha and I Am Legend and Dominie Till of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy fame, are the one’s responsible for giving Amitabh Bachchan the 13 year old Auro look.
The movie is first of its kind, where the lead actor’s real face is not shown even once. Amitabh Bachchan has the biggest fan following in India, and to have him in the film, but not show his face for even once, is in itself an amusing thought. However, as long as the Director has done justice to the story, and it doesn’t become like an art-film-preaching-story, the effort should be well appreciated by all.
