Sujoy Ghosh’s Bollywood remake of the classic story has already tried to keep the buzz going around the movie with all kinds of promotional stunts. Recently, Riteish Deshmukh, who plays Aladin in Sujoy and Jacqueline Fernandez, who plays his bride Jasmine, were asked to create three new Baskin Robbins Aladin Ice Cream Flavors inspired by their characters in the comedy flick.
But yesterday it was Big B’s turn to discuss the film the old fashion way! To Amitabh, who plays the Genie, Aladin is "a contemporary version of the old tale." In fact, the star added, "the only thing in common with the old tale is the name." So what can we expect from this B-town rendition of the old movie that hits theaters on October 30?
"Aladin is not Aladdin," revealed Amitabh. "He is Aladin Chatterjee. The other students make fun of him because of his name and ask him to rub lamps but nothing works, until one day."
Sounds exciting! What do you think? Will you catch the movie? Check out our pics from the event and share your thoughts!
