Mumbai: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says he grew up wanting to become like megastar Amitabh Bachchan and now looks forward to working with him soon."When I as a kid I wanted to grow up and become Amitabh Bachchan. Lot of things happened, but there has been a re-connection now and I am looking forward to make a film with him," the 40-year-old said here Wednesday at the premiere of his film The Last Act.Once Kashyap had accused Amitabh of using his clout to delay the former's film Chittagong, to promote his son Abhishek Bachchan's film Khelein Him Jee Jaan Sey. The subject of both the films was almost the same.Kashyap's new production "The Last Act" is co-directed by 12 young filmmakers. The film revolves around a murder mystery where 12 clues have been dropped by the killer. Each director has directed a portion regarding one clue each.Kashyap says these young filmmakers keep him going."I think we have all become old foggies compared to these new, young filmmakers who are more balsy and edgy than us. Their courage shows in their cinema and they work fearlessly," he said."We fear if the film will work or not, but they don't have any such fear. These young filmmakers are the ones who keep inspiring us. It's because of them that I also keep going," he added.Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra is also a part of the project and was involved in the selection of the directors.IANS

'Transcendence' review: The film is clunky and lifeless

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
