Shraddha Kapoor’s excitement for Wazir

Shraddha shares, “When Farhan and I were shooting together in Shillong, we had a brief discussion on his film. I have seen the trailer and it looks really interesting. I’ve followed his work since his first film and have been a huge fan of him. I am really looking forward to watching the film. He always plays such different roles with such specificity and finesse that I always look forward to watching his films.

Wazir was about to release on 4th January, 2016, but it delayed because of special effects movie makers are doing to give effects on Amitabh Bachchan’s leg. The movie would be completely ready till 15 December, to get successful movie, it won’t be complete in any kind of pressure. So, to give more effects and making the movie more attractive, movie makers delayed the film.

Wazir looks like those movies which comes only once after long time. Anyway, I am very excited to see Neil Nitin Mukesh’s acting and Amitabh Bachchan – Farhan Akhtar’s friendship.
