Big B is ready to blast the silver screen with his upcoming back to back three movies ‘Shamitabh’, ‘Wazir’ and ‘Piku’. Shamitabh is set to be released on 6th February, 2015.
"He (his Shamitabh character) is frustrated in his life and sometime he takes the help of alcohol. There were many roles in the past where I had played such scenes but in every film the situations and the characters are different. Thus changes the way you perform on screen," Big B said.
