The general saying goes as 'Whatever a King does, he does in style'. But, in Bollywood, whatever its King (aka Amitabh Bachchan) does, it becomes a style in itself! We are very sure that this piece of information will sound like music to the ears of one and all. If the hush-hush market buzz is to be believed, a major event is being planned by the entertainment major Reliance, to celebrate Amitabh Bachchan's whopping 40 years of being in films!
According to the most reliable sources of Bollywood Hungama, we discovered (read 'uncovered') the news, that the above mentioned mega event will also see the re-release of several of his blockbuster films in cinema halls like Shakti, Do Aur Do Paanch, Zanjeer, Hum, Amar Akbar Anthony...to name a few. This is being done for the younger generation to come face to face with the films with the evolution of the phenomenon called the 'Big B'. The event is being aimed with the basic objective of making the Gen-Next understand the 'Making of Amitabh Bachchan'.
Well, the good news just does not end there. Our source also went onto add that there's also a grand event with lots of stars planned around his birthday (which is on 11th October). We are very sure that many of you out there must be religiously following his blog. For those who don't, here's what you have missed. The Big B, late last month, gave a slight 'hint' of what to expect in the forthcoming days. Here's what he had written: "A prominent corporate wishes to celebrate my 40 years in the Industry and unfolds an elaborate plan. It is embarrassing for me to even think the way they do. It is like a self promotion. Of talking about yourself with a great amount of 'I' 'me' 'myself' thrown in. I am uncomfortable doing that, or even permitting someone to perceive what it all could be. The initial working of such a program has been approved upon. In the end due to the pressure of relationships, I shall perforce have to succumb. And that is the crux. How does one say 'no' to enthusiasm."
Well, as always, here we are, at Bollywood Hungama giving you the taste of tomorrow... today! Simply roll on the celebrations, we say. We just can't wait any longer to re-live the experience called 'Amitabh Bachchan'!
