NEW DELHI - Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is trying to connect with his fans by gambling with them one on one in the age-old game of ‘teen patti’.
His latest film “Teen Patti” is about greed and deception with the background of high-stake gambling.
A social game - Teen Patti - on ibibo.com is similar to poker but is a fast-paced game. One can win money a lot quicker in this game and also lose it in a jiffy. The game uses a standard 52-card deck with Aces ranking highest and two’s the lowest.
“Amitabhji is doing very well with his fans, he is playing very well. Anybody can be a part of the game. People ranging from those who know nothing about the game and are just there to be with Amitabhji to those who are experts in this game, are playing,” Rahul Razdan, vice president of ibibo told IANS over the phone.
“The response has been remarkable - reason could be the love for the game or an opportunity to know Big B’s fun side,” he added.
The uniqueness of the game is that one not only plays with live multiple players and earns money but can chat with friends while playing. Players can invite their friends to play the game or try their luck with others across India.
The film “Teen Patti” stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Raima Sen, R. Madhavan and Saira Mohan in important roles, apart from Amitabh in the lead.
The film also introduces four newcomers - Siddharth Kher, Vaibhav Talwar, Dhruv Ganesh and Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha Kapoor.
