A private complaint was filed in a court of Bhopal, alleging promos of the upcoming season of TV quiz-show Kaun Banega Crorepati present the legal profession in a derogatory manner.

It names actor Amitabh Bachchan, the show's host, as one of the respondents. The complaint was filed in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Sanjay Pande by Nasir Ali, legal cell coordinator of 'Gondwana Gantantra Party'.

The court has fixed a hearing on August 23 to record the statement of the complainant to decide whether any case can be registered against the respondents.

The show is to be aired on Sony.

Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, the complaint names Big Synery Media Limited's Managing Director Siddharth Basu and Multi Screen Media Private Limited's Secretary, Rajkumar Bidvatka among others as respondents.

Ali, who is a lawyer, has sought registration of a police case under section 500 (defamation) of Indian Penal Code, and under the Information Technology Act.

Big B refuses Zanjeer remake; okays song

Big B refuses Zanjeer remake; okays song
TNN | Aug 1, 2013, 05.07 PM IST

Amitabh Bachchan may have refused to be a part of Apoorva Lakhia's Zanjeer, a remake of the classic that starred Big B.

But has agreed to be a part of a song from the film titled Mumbai Ka Hero. Lakhia is known to be on very cordial terms with the Bachchan family so it was only natural for him to take permission from Big B to use his dialogues from the original Zanjeer and add it in the new song.

Sources report that Mr Bachchan was taken aback with the line Acche Acche Ki Gand Phat-ti hai in the song and had reservations about it. But Apoorva convinced him that the G word would be beeped which finally convinced Mr. Bachchan and he gave Apoorva the go head.

Although Amitabh Bachchan does not have the rights to dialogues from the original, it was courteous on Apoorva's part to ask him and courteous enough of Mr. Bachchan to agree!

With Ram Charan Teja stepping into Big B's shoes, will he be able to create the same angry young man image that Amitabh Bachchan did and will audiences accept him? Tell us what you think!

Amitabh Bachchan objects to the G word

Amitabh Bachchan objects to the G word
Thursday, Aug 1, 2013, 9:08 IST | Agency: DNA

Apoorva Lakhia initially planned to cast the original 'angry young man' Amitabh Bachchan in the remake of Big B's Zanjeer. But Senior Bachchan was unwilling to make an appearance in the remake. However, now Lakhia has found an ingenious way to incorporate him into the neo-Zanjeer.

The film will feature a song entitled Mumbai Ka Hero which would be interspersed with Big B's most celebrated dialogues from the original. Last week, Lakhia went to the Bachchans' home Jalsa to seek permission to use Big B's voice and dialogue from the original Zanjeer. Says an insider, "He didn't really need to take Amitji's permission to use the dialogues from the original but he shares a very long and warm relationship with the entire Bachchan family. He had to play the song for Amitji and show him how his voice and dialogues were interwoven into the track."

According to a source close to Lakhia, when Bachchan heard the song, he froze at the line Achche Acche Ki Gand Phat-ti hai. "Are you going to use that line in the song?" he asked Lakhia calmly. Lakhia assured him that the 'G' word for the posterior would be beeped out in the song. "Then it's fine," he said. When asked about the song in the film which would now feature his voice, the Big B said, "My voice is part of the dialogue from the original Zanjeer. I don't possess the rights over my dialogues. As a gesture of courtesy Apoorva Lakhia asked me and I approved."

The videos of various activities have been put up

Jalsa, Mumbai               July 31/Aug 1, 2013                Wed/Thu  1:03 am


The videos of various activities have been put up .. do peruse. The video on Uttarakhand is just a pre release information cut, done to bring attention to the telethon to take place on Aug 15th , when we shall all be doing almost a 24 hr tv programme to collect funds and resources for those affected by the disaster at Uttarakhand …

Prasoon Joshi, the writer poet and advertising guru has written a poetry which shall be rendered by me to a music piece, and which shall be rendered on the day. Contributions in monetary terms are already being registered. Many have done their bit, as have I. I have always refrained from mentioning what I do in charity and shall continue to be so, irrespective of caustic, abusive and downright rude comments. That does not bother me. What bothers me is the limit of ignorance and deliberate unwanted speech that many go through. For they are making desperate effort to disguise their own shortcomings, by being critical to another. I shall always look upon them with pity and great sympathy. They need treatment, and they shall never get it.

The campaign for atrocities against women and children has begun, and as ambassador for the UN I give it my involvement. Certain sites shall be put up and I do hope you all shall be able to follow it … its a noble cause, and it helps when millions speak out ..

A wonderful sitting with Aadesh Srivastava on the music for Sudhir Mishra's film, and a long session defining composing ideating all that the film needs. It is such a unique process, one that most of the audience shall never get opportunity to witness … but in time they shall … i shall start putting up videos of those moments … it shall be delightful to watch ..

There have been discussions too with the digital team on some new innovations for the cyber world, and soon they should be coming up for distribution and sharing .. 

The world moves at a faster pace now and keeping up with it and them is such a necessity and need. The entire world sits on an exciting future in this phenomena .. it shall change the way we all think, move, act .. such a wonderful world it shall be .. and we may never get to see it in our lifetime .. !!

There is a selfishness that creeps in when we think of the future. There is wonder whether we shall be around to witness it. But that is the world for us, and that is how it shall be .. for all 

My love to all

Amitabh Bachchan

The appreciation of the Sunday pictures was so great

Jalsa, Mumbai         July 30/31, 2013                 Tue/Wed  2: 56 am


The appreciation of the Sunday pictures was so great that I am compelled to put in some more .. more is good, not so, less … less in temperament perhaps works better … the lesser you show the better you feel about situations … or so some may like to believe … its the quiet one you observe the most after a time .. !!

I try to remain quiet .. !! Many who question my appearance on these platforms wonder .. you have been 'traditionally' quiet and elusive, why this opening up .. telling the world everyday what you do feel and expect … most unlike you ..

Really .. ?? How on earth did you assuage what I was indeed 'like' in the first place !

Celebration is justified on successful completion of thought deed and idea. Celebration is justified too when you become vulnerable. Indeed vulnerability is the corner stone of status. Get status, get hit !!

Part of life .. accept it and accept it again .. 

My love is a celebration … which is why there is abuse … abuse must be welcomed … many take offence on some that become abusively critical of comments .. leave them alone … let them express .. it is such a joy to be in their company … what was that expression in one of Shakespeare's plays about the best flower growing beside the nettle, a stingy leaf. In fact during the years in boarding in Sherwood, the hills around us abounded in the nettle plant, which when it touched your skin stung you with great intensity and pain. But … right next to it grew another plant, the leaves of which when rubbed at the area of the sting would immediately provide relief ..

That is life .. that is nature .. that is the world …

The most painful episodes in our lives have the solution right next to it .. simple … easy access and with cure ..

My love to all

Amitabh Bachchan
