Angry young man is back: Amitabh Bachchan in Shamitabh
Big B recently took to Twitter to unveil his look in his upcoming movie, R Balki's Shamitabh. The actor can be seen in an intense look sporting a beard amidst Hollywood movie posters and a picture of Woody Allen. Senior Bachchan tweeted the pic saying, " Shamitabh’ in the day .. its quite an effort to live with that hair all day !!”
From the grungy look with scruffy beard to dark kohl eyes, Amitabh Bachchan's expressions in the pic sure remind us of his 'angry young' days. The actor has been teasing the look of the film on social media sites of late. He earlier posted this pic on Facebook, from the sets of the movie.
The 71 year old actor, however, has admitted that it has become increasingly difficult to preserve the look of the film, posting on his blog, "............It is getting exceedingly difficult to preserve a look for a film or occasion when we have millions of mobile cameras following us and immortalising us... Thank you." The film, which is Amitabh's third time collaboration with R Balki, will see him and Dhanush in the lead. Reportedly, Dhanush is playing a deaf and dumb character in the film. The film will also mark the debut of Kamal Haasan and Sarika's younger daughter Akshara.

Amitabh Bachchan likely to be the chief guest for 45th IFFI in Goa
Indian cinema legend AmitabhBachchan is likely to be the chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of the 45th Indian film festival of India (IFFI) scheduled to be held in Goa from November 20 to 30.
Briefing the media on Saturday, Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar said that Amitabh Bachchan's name is on top of the list of the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), the Goa government's nodal agency for IFFI. Goa has been hosting the IFFI from 2003 and has been declared a permanent venue for the IFFI.
Parrikar however said that Bachchan's name as chief guest for the IFFI inaugural has to be approved by the directorate of film festivals, government of India and only then would the ESG formally request Bachchan to be the chief guest.
Incidentally Parrikar was the chief minister of Goa when the state hosted IFFI for the first time in Goa in 2003. He is credited with creating some of the crucial infrastructure for the film festival including the Inox in Panaji.
Stating that the government is making profits from the Inox, he said his government will now draw up plans to boosting more film infrastructure since Goa has been declared the IFFI's permanent venue in India. For example, the government will earmark funds to improve the acoustics at the newly-built Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee stadium on the Taleigao plateau. The stadium will then be utilized for IFFI-related programmes.
