The film “Teen Patti”, which releases on February 26, marks the Bollywood debut of Sir Ben Kingsley, who became a household name in India with his iconic portrayal of Mahatma Gandhi in 1982 Richard Attenborough’s film “Gandhi”.
Kingsley plays a mathematics genius in the film and Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan plays a mathematics professor. The film is directed by Leena Yadav and produced by Ambika Hinduja.
Big B is full of praise for the Oscar-winning actor, whom he considers a “wonderful” human being.
“I found Sir Ben to be a wonderful human being before encountering him as an actor. We did lot of reading rehearsals before shooting. When we met as ordinary people in our hotel room, he knew his dialogues very well. He is a considerate and well prepared actor and also a gracious man,” Bachchan said about Sir Ben Kingsley.
