Apparently he was not too happy with the way shooting was conducted and also shocked to see the unprepared unit in the last shooting stint of the film which was underway in London.

“Wonder Why He’s Doing It…Ben Kingsley Has A Small Cameo”

Amitabh BachchanWhy is Sir Ben Kingsley who not so long ago swept the world, critics and the Oscars by playing Gandhi, ready and willing to do a 5-day cameo in an out-and-out Amitabh Bachchan film?
