ON June 10, the Power of Three will be unleashed as the formidable trio of exemplary actors in the shape of Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, with Vidya Balan in a pivotal guest appearance will be seen together in Ribhu Dasgupta’s emotional thriller TE3N.
People have been taken aback with the unusual images and visuals of the megastar Amitabh Bachchan zipping away on an antique blue scooter, but what they don’t know how special it is, not only in the movie but to the actual owner itself.
The scooters vendor and owner Sujit Narayan Sur who gave the scooter to the production for the shoot, has been inundated with offers to sell the scooter ‘driven by Amitabh Bachchan’ but he has refused despite an Rs 1 crore offer. He has modified and customized it for Mr Bachchan in TE3N.
Sujit also known as Bhaida, said, “This second-hand scooter is about 20 years old. I bought it 13 years back and still use it. The unit came with a sketch of what they needed and my scooter’s colour matched their requirements. I was thrilled. I will not be able to lend out the scooter ever again. I want to keep it at my Tollygunge home with a life-size photo of Bachchan. And also, the scooter that he rides is not less than a crore in worth. So, there’s no question of selling it.”
Well, now that is true passion for cinema memorabilia and for Mr Bachchan.
