Amitabh Bachchan, son of the literary giant Dr Harivanshrai Bachchan’, is often seen reciting anecdotes or lines from his father’s poem. During the marketing and promotional discussions of his upcoming film Badla directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Amitabh Bachchan came up with this idea of narrating the iconic poet’s creation ‘Gudiya’ based on the concept of the Russian doll.
He shared this idea with his music director team of Rohan-Vinayak, and together they created the sound recitation and the final product . Mr. Bachchan uses the poem as a metaphor symbolizing the Film’s characters and the World around them.
‘Gudiya’ signifies the underlying layers of the people who inhabit Badla and the world they live in. The poem was inspired by the Russian doll, commonly known as Matryoshka, talking about the various facades we unfold in life.
The Russian doll which unveils smaller dolls one after another on uncovering, is significant to the Film’s characters, who unfold their multiple layers as the Film progresses.
BADLA is presented by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment, Co-produced by Gaurav Verma and produced by Gauri Khan, Sunir Kheterpal and Akshai Puri, the crime thriller is directed by Sujoy Ghosh, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles is slated to release on 8th March 2019.
