"It was not intimidating. I was really excited. Anxious to a certain degree of course, because you kind of want to be there with him because you know what he is capable of doing. So I was just anxious about that. I think those were the two main things," Farhan said
Wazir's writer Abhijat Joshi said: " There's not one percent malice towards anyone", while Mr Chopra said: "How can he have malice? Our character is that (paralysed). Amitabh Bachchan is playing that. We don't mean malice"
"The team of Wazir is very special. All those who have worked on the film -- whether it is Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani, Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan, Bejoy Nambiar, everybody is a special person and a very special artiste. They are all amazing people. I'm the youngest in the team," said Aditi
"Wazir is an intelligent, smart and modern film. Two minds, a common cause and a game of chess woven beautifully into the fibre of the story, the objects of desire, the players, the 'mohra' and the quality of their presence in a story of immense emotion," Big B posted on his blog
"It was tough for me to work under Farhan and it was tough for me to work with him as an actor. Farhan has grown up in front of me. It was just wonderful to be in his company," said Big B. Farhan, who directed Big B in Lakshya, co-stars with him in in upcoming film Wazir
With January 2016 offering an attractive line up of films for the audiences, it will be interesting to see if the star-studded month can finally break the jinx and deliver good at the box office. Akshay's Airlift, Madhavan's Saala Khadoos, Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar's Wazir are up for release
"I think it's high time we take a uniform decision about what kind of content we should be allowed to watch. If this kind of discussion is consistently happening, it means there is definitely a problem, which has not happened earlier. It's high time we get a certificate rating like we have in the west," said Bejoy Nambiar
Neil Nitin Mukesh says that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra was so impressed with his performance in Wazir that he renamed the film after his character. After I finished shooting, I got a call from Vidhu sir and he said, 'I am changing the name of my film to Wazir now'."
"I don't have a big production house, big director or a big actor backing me. I am taking things step by step. I came from outside. I knew nobody. I don't know how to play the game. I can't think of schemes or ways to put myself ahead of others or back stab somebody," said Aditi Rao Hydari
Wazir depicts the emotional journey of two unusual friends - a paralyzed chess grandmaster, played by Amitabh Bachchan and a grief-stricken ATS officer, played by Farhan Akhtar - brought together by a twist of fate. Wazir will release on January 8
"Farhan is an honest actor. He is a down to earth person. It's an absolute delight to work with him. Most of my scenes are with Farhan. He doesn't interfere with anyone's work. He is director's actor. It's comfortable working with him. I enjoyed doing action scenes with him," said Manav Kaul
Recently, the Censor Board was criticised for cutting short kissing scenes between actor Daniel Craig and his leading ladies in the 24th James Bond film SPECTRE. Thus, to avoid any issues, the scenes were cut from Wazir by the filmmakers themselves
