Amitabh-Abhishek planning world tour together


By Subhash K Jha

Mumbai, Nov 28 (IANS) Bollywood's dynamic father-son duo Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan are all set to show the entertainment industry how to make the right moves on stage.

Titled "One Amazing Night", the series of world concerts featuring the father and son on stage, is expected to storm show business.

Says the Big B, "Yes, we're planning a series of world concerts. We're looking at summer 2008. The shows, to be entitled 'One Amazing Night', will have other leading entertainers from Hindi cinema besides the two of us.""I've been doing world tours long before they were fashionable in the mid-1970s when (wife) Jaya and I would be on stage along with (music composers) Kalyanji-Anandaji. Jaya and my enactment of the song 'Mere angnein mein' always brought the house down. A lot has changed since then. The concerts abroad have become far more slick and technically advanced," he added.

With both the senior and junior Bachchan being inundated with work, obviously the two-month concert needs meticulous planning.

"Yes, it requires very careful planning. Though I've been on stage a number of times, this is going to be Abhishek's first world concert. The fact that our company AB Corp Ltd is involved does put an extra responsibility on us. Let's see how it goes," the Big B said.
