'Badla' has impressed the audience and critics, both. They are calling it 'a masterpiece'. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan, this crime drama is winning hearts all over. 'Badla' is an adaptation of a Spanish film, 'The Invisible Guest (Contratiempo, 2016), written and directed by Oirol Paulo. While the original revolved around a businessman Adrian Doria, who is out on bail after being accused for the murder of his lover, Laura Vidal, 'Badal' revolves around Taapsee Pannu in the same situation.
With references from Mahabharata, this film is engrossing, spectacular and thrilling.
As the movie garners all the positive reviews, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan's fun banter can't be missed on social media. In a promotional video for 'Badla' the duo are seen recreating 'Ek Doosre Ko Karte Hai Pyaar Hum' from Amitabh's film 'Hum'. Shah Rukh Khan, following Bachchan's footsteps, numbered his tweet this time and shared the video captioning it as: "T4018 - एक ऐतिहासिक पल @SrBachchan sir के साथ | Amidst all the fun, love and talk...we also have a selfie video together!”
Both of them called this moment 'historic'. Watch the video below -
