Amitabh Bachchan – Pink
Amitabh Bachchan plays the same, exact role, this time, as the fierce lawyer Deepak Sehgal. As Sehgal, he is what stands between the film’s three heroines, Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) and a deeply patriarchal and judgemental Indian society which is hell bent on proving that these women are of ‘questionable character’.

Shahid Kapoor played a role named Tommy Singh. Tommy is obnoxious, rude, badly behaved. You will hear a lot of expletives from him, and he is everything that will turn you off. But my brief from my director (Abhishek Chaubey) was that Tommy will do everything wrong in the first five minutes, but end of the fifth minute, everyone should love him.

The situations she faces, people she meets and her attitude to love and relationships is reflective of the way norms in our society are evolving today.
Alia Bhatt – Udta Punjab
Udta Punjab, of the four main parts, she has the one which endures the most and thereby draws most empathy from the audience.

In a beautifully scripted meltdown and outburst by Chaubey and Sudip Sharma, Alia steals the show.
