As the intentions of Big B was conveyed to the creative heads of Amazon Prime, Vijay Subramaniam (Vice President, content and communications) and Aparna Purohit (Head of India Originals) during an event, both of them appeared quite excited on the same. In fact, the duo was immediately eager to find a suitable story that would fit the megastar’s stature.

Commenting on the same, Aparna mentioned on a media platform, “Sure, we hear him! But, for us, everything begins with a good story, how passionate the storyteller is about that story and what is the best way we can translate that story on screen and then whatever it takes to make that story relevant, exciting and engaging.”

Adding on the similar account, Vijay Subramaniam said, “We would love to do something with him! It’s just (about) finding the right story that fits not only his stature but also something that is of interest to him.”
