Wazir Chess Movie Teaser Video with Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar

"A dangerous game is about to begin."

Remember the last time megastar Amitabh Bachchan played a schemer in Aankhen? It's about to happen again in Bejoy Nambiar's upcoming film Wazir.

The first teaser of the film, which released on December 19, shows Big B and co-star Farhan Akhtar engrossed in a precarious game of chess. However, their game is not limited to the chess board, but spills to real life.

Mr Bachchan, who is wheelchair-bound, takes on the role of a scheming 'wazir,' making moves that have a domino effect on Farhan's life, who is seen grappling with reality.

The film is written by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who also co-produces with Rajkumar Hirani. Wazir is scheduled to release in 2015.

How a Game of Chess Won Irrfan Khan a Film Role

Bollywood celebrities are known for their quirks. And before signing him for his next movie, Tigmanshu Dhulia gave Irrfan Khan a challenge that he needed to complete.

Tigmanshu challenged the actor to a game of chess and only after he beat him hands down, did he let him sign on the dotted line.

A source says, "For the sequel of Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster, everyone thought that since Irrfan is Tigmanshu's good friend, getting in would be a cakewalk for Irrfan. But the director came up with this unique test." Irrfan finally beat Tigmanshu in the game and came on board for the film.

The source adds, "It was only later that Tigmanshu explained to Irrfan that since his character plays mind games in the film, he wanted to see him in action in real-life too." (NDTV Movies)
