Big Ben helps Big B

The prestigious Cambridge University of England, recently opened its gates to two legendary actors — Sir Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan, who were given permission to shoot for a day in its premises for their forthcoming Hindi film — Teen Patti.

But what’s more interesting, is to overhear from sources that Sir Ben was instrumental in getting this permission.

A source says, “Cambridge was very forthcoming to grant permission to Leena Yada (the director), when the authorities of the British University learnt that Bachchan and Ben will be shooting together. Both the actors are immensely popular in England.”

Reports also say that Ben played an important part in helping get the permission.

Since they have a very small portion together in the film, getting one day was a big boon for Leena who wanted to have the University shots. Bachchan and Ben were very cordial to each other but didn’t bond that much after the shoot.
