New Delhi[India], Aug. 28 (ANI): Actress Tapsee Pannu, who is all set with her upcoming Amitabh Bachchan-starrer flick 'PINK,' recently revealed about how the Shehenshah helped her during the shoot-days.

"He helped me by doing his job perfectly. For an actor, it is a blessing if your co-actors do their job brilliantly. Being from a non-acting background, I am an actor who feeds off other actor's energy, which is why, whenever I shared the screen with Amitabh sir, I felt I did my job well," the actress, who is sharing the screen with Big-B for the first time, told ANI.

The 29-year-old actress, while sharing her first reaction when Shoojit Sircar revealed that she would be acting alongside Senior Bachchan, said, "I could not believe my ears."

On being asked who broke the ice between the two, the 'Baby' star said, "He is usually the first one to break the ice but I am a very outspoken person, so I could not wait to talk to him either."

"When we went to his house for a reading session, he asked everyone very courteously about what they want to speak, but none answered to him. While everyone was quiet, I was the first one to speak to him," she continued.

The 'Chashme Baddoor' actress further said that the film, which speaks about women empowerment, does not highlight 'rape' or Delhi as a 'rape capital'.

"The film is not about rape or Delhi. But Delhi was a perfect place for the story as it was in news since long for being an unsafe place for girls," she concluded.

Directed by national award winning director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, 'PINK' also stars Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang and Angad Bedi.

The film will hit the screens on September 16(ANI)
