Amitabh Bachchan unveiled the trailer of his upcoming film TE3N today and quite interestingly, his 1978 release Trishul, which means trident, also completed 38 years on Wednesday.
A nostalgic Big B went down memory lane on the film’s 38th anniversary and wrote, ”TRISHUL .. completes 38 years of its release … ! 38 years is like an eternity, but an eternity that one looks back with great nostalgia and extreme joy. The narration itself by Salim–Javed in the presence of Yash ji and Gulshan Rai the producer was a moment .. I was there too .. it was a mere formality I think, for the text and the desire to make the film had already been taken. The story idea had been shared to me by the writers and its concurrence for its production house was to be taken by Gulshan ji.”
"Yes it was quite a dynamic film and somewhat progressive in its story and scripting .. brilliant I should say .. and the shootings in location familiar to me from my University days was all the more exciting . Yash ji loved beauty and winter and food .. and that came to us in abundance in all his films that he did with us at the time, except Kaala Patthar ,” he further added.
"TRISHUL .. was ‘three’ in a sense and it is quite ironic and coincidental that we have another ‘three’ a TE3N coming up again .. the circles of life .. they come back in time .. you either need to be riding it or getting off the tread mill and awaiting its return to the same wheel," stated the megastar.
Big B will share screen space with Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in TE3N.
