Amitabh Bachchan, a Day of Prayer to Mark His Father's Death Anniversary

 Amitabh Bachchan, a Day of Prayer to Mark His Father's Death Anniversary

NOTED POET HARIVANSH RAI, WHO IS CREDITED WITH WORKS LIKE MADHUSHALA AND AGNEEPATH, DIED ON JANUARY 18, 2003

I shall be in prayer with him in his surroundings," Big B posted on his blog


Remembering Harivansh Rai Bachchan on his 12th death anniversary on Sunday, his son and megastar Amitabh Bachchan paid a tribute to the noted poet.

Harivansh Rai, who is credited with works like Madhushala and Agneepath, died on January 18, 2003.

"It is the death anniversary of my Father. When you think of those moments it sends shivers, apprehensions, prayer and remembrance to the one departed, especially when it happens to be your own Father," the 72-year-old posted on his official blog on Sunday.

"I shall be in prayer with him in his surrounding, for whatever little that we can do for him, it is after all the day of his passing. My Father... my father... lost today but in my thoughts and mind continuously... where do they go, and where are they that seek indifference to their problems."

Many wonder if they reached the doors of heaven, of meeting that phantom like 'old man' with rather large beard and a guffaw at his disposal... reverential and obedient and filled with pardon to be sought from the one that sacrificed his," he added.

Meanwhile, Big B, currently busy promoting his forthcoming film Shamitabh, has cut his finger.

Amitabh Bachchan attends Shatrughan Sinha’s son’s wedding

Salaamat Rahe Dostaana': Amitabh Bachchan attends Shatrughan Sinha’s son’s wedding

That the dynamics of relationships among the stalwarts of the Indian Film Industry keep changing is a thing of common knowledge; more so with the superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha who jointly ruled the silver screen in the 1970s. Having worked together in movies like ‘Kaala Patthar’, ‘Naseeb’, ‘Shaan’ and ‘Dostana’, the relations between Big B and Shotgun, as they are fondly called have always been soured. When asked about the history to such clashes, Shatrughan Sinha had said, “Jawaani thhi, josh thha, ego issues they.

But now the duo seems to have buried the hatchet and mended bridges. Amitabh Bachchan was seen attending Shatrughan Sinha’s son Kussh’s wedding in Mumbai on January 18 and an ecstatic Sonakshi Sinha took to Twitter to thank her ‘Amit Uncle’ and ‘Jaya Aunty’ for gracing the occasion. 
 
She captioned the pictures, “Salaamat rahe dostaana aapka! Thank u @SrBachchan uncle and jaya aunty for the warmth and happiness :)” 

In one, Amitabh Bachchan can be seen warmly greeting Shatrughan Sinha.

The second picture shows Sonakshi Sinha flanked by veteran actresses Jaya Bachchan, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon and Tina Ambani.  
 

Earlier, the Sinhas had returned the box of sweets sent to them by the Bachchans on the occasion of Abhishek and Aishwarya’s wedding in 2007. “Jab bulaaya nahin toh mitthaai kis baat ki?” Shatrughan Sinha was quoted saying. As a reply to this, Big B had said, “Those who were not invited were not friends in the first place.” 

The route back to friendship, however, started when last year when the Bachchans invited the Sinhas over to their grand Diwali bash and Shatrughan Sinha along with wife Poonam, daughter Sonakshi and sons Kussh and Luv attended the party.

I strictly believe that drinking alcohol is not good for an actor says : Amitabh Bachchan

 Amitabh Bachchan: There are some actors who drink before doing a scene

The story of 'Shamitabh' revolves around the ego clash between two characters but Amitabh Bachchan says it bears no similarity with his 1973 hit 'Abhimaan'.

In 'Abhimaan', Bachchan and Jaya played singers who get married. Their marriage, however, hits the rock when the husband finds it hard to deal with the growing popularity of his wife.

"'Abhimaan' was the story of a couple where the wife was more talented than her husband. In 'Shamitabh' it's a story of two people. One person having something which the other person doesn't. Then comes the role of Akshara, who is a journalist. She is the one who will evaluate the two and get them to come together. The story is around these two people and their egos," Bachchan said in an interview.
 
Directed by R Balki, who has worked with Bachchan in 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa', the film also stars Dhanush and Akshara Haasan. It will release on February 6.

The trailer of 'Shamitabh' shows the actor in a drunk state. Bachchan who has played similar roles in 'Sharabi', 'Do Anjaane', 'Amar Akbar Anthony' and 'Hum' among many others, said he delivers such scenes without touching the alcohol.

"He (his Shamitabh character) is frustrated in his life and sometime he takes the help of alcohol. There were many roles in the past where I had played such scenes but in every film the situations and the characters are different. Thus changes the way you perform on screen.

"But, I strictly believe that drinking alcohol is not good for an actor. There are some actors who drink before doing such a scene but I don't believe in that and will never do that," Bachchan said.
2014 was a busy year for the 72-year-old actor as he shot back-to-back films like 'Shamitabh', 'Wazir' and 'Piku' besides shooting his TV show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. 
   
"I am an artist. There are different looks for each film and I enjoyed working in them," said Bachchan, who collaborated with a Hollywood make-up artiste besides his make up Man Friday Deepak Sawant to create the unkempt look in his upcoming film.

Get a chance to sit next to Amitabh Bachchan in a flight

 Amitabh Bachchan - Shahenshah of B-Town


Picture this- a candid chat with a celebrity on a flight. Sounds unrealistic. Not anymore as a start-up venture Fly with VIP is offering a seat next to a star on a flight through online auction, starting with megastar Amitabh Bachchan. After Big B, the unique initiative will be followed by the team of forthcoming movie 'Shamitabh' - Dhanush, Akshara Haasan and R. Balki when they will fly on a private jet. 

The chance to fly with Amitabh is likely to occur in the first week of February. The bidding will take place at FlywithVIP.com. The treat by the company doesn't end with 'Shamitabh'. They have signed up celebrities across 14 different genres including film directors and producers, sportsmen, fashion designers, spiritual leaders, TV stars among others.

The users can take their pick from stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Virat Kohli, Farah Khan. One can also take styling tips by sitting next to ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra. The company founded by Mumbai-based entrepreneur Gautam Chhabria and co-founded by Bangalore-based social entrepreneur Anil Shetty in 2011, has patented the concept in India, US, Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia and other places.

"There is a rigorous screening process adopted to ensure unwanted bidders like bookies who may want to fly with the Indian cricketers are kept out," said Chhabria in a statement. There are two methods of participating- an auction model which shall see the highest bidder get the seat and a raffle model where multiple participants pay as little as Rs.100 and get selected by a lucky draw.

There is also an advance booking section where interested participants will give non-binding offers without knowing the celebrity's flight date or sector. And then, when a celebrity makes a last minute travel plan, there would be a short duration - one hour auction open only to the advance bookers.
