Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has praised film director Srijit Mukherji for the upcoming Bengali crime-drama film “Zulfiqar”.
The 73-year-old actor on Thursday sent out a tweet to Mukherji, and also shared a link of the trailer of the Prosenjit Chatterjee, Parambrata Chatterjee and Paoli Dam starrer movie.
“What a wonderful interpretation of Julius Caesar in Bengali by Srijit (Mukherji),” he tweeted.
“Zulfiqar” is based on an adaptation of two of British playwright William Shakespeare’s tragedies — “Julius Caesar” and “Antony and Cleopatra”.
On the Bollywood front, Mukherji has directed actress Vidya Balan for the upcoming film “Begum Jaan”, a Hindi adaptation of his Bengali offering “Rajkahini”.
Produced by Vishesh Films and Play Entertainment, “Begum Jaan” marks Mukherji’s directorial debut in Hindi films.
