Actor Elli Avram shared a photo of himself with Amitabh Bachchan from the sets of upcoming drama Goodbye on Saturday. She expressed her excitement when her old dream of starring alongside the megastar came true. A few weeks ago, Bachchan had mentioned in his blog that in addition to Rashmika Mandanna and Pavail Gulati, Elli Avram also stars in the film.
In an Instagram note next to the photo, Elli also recalls how she and her friends danced to Bachchan’s popular song “Say Shava Shava” from the 2001 family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. “Dear fan-fam, this is it! Remember the script I held but didn’t share? Well it was ‘Goodbye’ with the one and only amitabh bachchan. I still remember how I used to dance to Shava Shava, at home in Sweden with my girlfriends, and today I get to perform with mister!!!! OMG. I can only say that miracles happen, if you dare to dream big. Can’t wait for the next schedule to start soon!!!”
Amitabh Bachchan and Rashmika Mandanna resumed filming of Goodbye in June, months after the second wave of Covid-19 halted filming.
Goodbye also plays Neena Gupta in a pivotal role. The actor will be seen as the wife of Amitabh Bachchan and Pavail Gulati, known from Thappad, will be seen as his son. Goodbye is directed by Vikas Bahl and supported by Balaji Motion Pictures of Ekta Kapoor.
