While the audience loved Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu's performances in the 2016 courtroom drama Pink, they were super excited to know that both of them will feature together once again in another movie. Yes, we are talking about Badla here which released in 2019 and received a positive response from the audience and the film critics. Today, the suspense thriller reaches another milestone as it has completed two years of its release in the theatres.

But did you know that Badla's director Sujoy Ghosh was not very keen on directing it? Yes, that's right. The renowned filmmaker himself has admitted this fact in many of his interviews. While he was initially hesitant, it was Taapsee who insisted on taking up the project. According to him, the actress asked him to read it which was an adaptation of the 2016 Spanish movie titled The Invisible Man. It was only after that Ghosh gave it a read and was convinced when the final script came to him. 

The filmmaker hilariously revealed in one of his interviews that no idiot would say no to directing a film if Amitabh Bachchan is in it. Talking about Badla, the murder mystery has been co-produced by Gauri Khan, Sunir Khetarpal, and Akshai Puri. Apart from Taapsee and Big B, it also featured Amrita Singh, Tony Luke, Manav Kaul, Denzil Smith, Antonio Aakeel, and others in pivotal roles. It was released on the eve of International Women's Day which falls on March 8.

Anonymous : Taapsee is a perennial underactor who thinks that is brilliant acting. Badla is a case in point. Her good scenes are few and far and they have something to do with her co-stars in those scenes. Like with Vicky in Manmarziyaan. She could not have carried Thappad on her shoulders alone. All the other stories and actors made the movie interesting.
