Mumbai – Technology has eased the predicament of actors who enjoy delivering a scene in one take, says megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who says there’s “immense satisfaction” in living a scene in “one stroke”.

The 71-year-old shared some photographs from the set of “Yudh”, which marks his debut in the fiction space on TV, and pondered over how technology has turned out to be a boon to those in his field.

“It is quite challenging to be in character and do an entire scene comprising several pages of dialogue, movement, introduction of other characters, camera movements, covering large areas of space on set.

“But at the end of it there is immense satisfaction of having lived that scene in one stroke… unlike at other times when we would have to do a few lines and cut for different angles and positioning of artists,” Big B posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.

He says that the “benefit of three cameras running at a time, and the benefit of digital photography” has made it possible to place cameras at “vantage points, covering all the angles, thereby allowing the artist to perform all in one go than to play stop and keep playing again and again for the rest of the scene”.

This, he believes, gives an artist the “joy of having continuity of thought and performance, and speed in completing a given scene in a shorter period of time”.

“These changes in technology have given us, as artists, the benefit of the act. It could be taking a little more time to prepare for the shot, but when it is ready there is huge satisfaction in its accomplishment, for, it all gets over in one take,” added the actor, who has dedicated over four decades of his life to showbiz.

He said the challenge in shooting a scene with a break is the “effort required to get back to the same mood again and again after a break, is at times not just enough but also at times hampering the final output”.

Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, “Yudh” is likely to go on air in July on Sony. It also stars Sarika and Kay Kay Menon.
