Mumbai, May 1 - Conquering new peaks has become a bit of a habit for Amitabh Bachchan. He did it yet again on the sets of his English-language film 'Last Lear' when he penned down some on-the-spot Hindi dialogues for a scene with Preity Zinta and Bengali superstar Prosenjeet.
Director Rituparno Ghosh, reluctant to reveal details, admits that Bachchan has indeed penned the Hindi dialogues for a scene in 'Last Lear'.
Ghosh told IANS: 'Since the film is almost in English, 'Last Lear' has been my easiest film to date. But this is a film-within-a-film plot. There was a scene where Preity and Prosenjeet are supposed to be enacting a tense dramatic scene in a Hindi film.
'I casually asked the Big B to help me out, not even thinking he'd take me seriously. Before I knew it he went into a corner and asked everyone, including me, to leave him alone. In no time at all the dialogues were ready!'
Hence, in 'Last Lear' we would be hearing for the first time dialogues written by the Big B.
'That isn't the only first for Amitda in 'Last Lear'. This is his first full-length English-language film and also the first film where he plays an actor doing a film within the film.'
