Bachchan embarrassed by ignorance

Abhishek Bachchan has said he was "embarrassed" that he didn't know any of the history behind his latest role.

In the Ashutosh Gawariker film, Khelein Hum Jee Jan Sey, Bachchan plays the role of a freedom fighter during the Chittagong Uprising.

Bachchan said he felt it was a story that needed to be told but also that he was initially unaware of the historical significance of it.

"I was embarrassed because as an Indian citizen I didn't know about Surjya Sen, the great Chittagong Uprising and these great freedom fighters who laid their lives for our freedom," the 34-year-old actor said.

Based on Manini Chatterjee's book Do and Die: The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34, the film chronicles the true story of revolution against the British in Chittagong.

Deepika Padukone as Kalpana Dutta also star in the film, which will be released worldwide on December 3.
