Bachchan gets smitten bu appnu Gujarat

Bachchan gets smitten bu appnu Gujarat

Amitabh Bachchan gets smitten by Gujarat's beauty, while shooting for Gujarat State Tourism department, in order to promote Gujarat as a tourist destination. A family visit to Dhordo in Kutch in the month of December is a proof of the same.

 Yes, there seems to all possibilities that, the Bachchans, Amitabh, Abhishek, Aishwariya Rai and Jaya, are planning to pay a visit to the white land during 'Sharadotsav' in December.

As of now, Amitabh Bachchan will be visiting Saputara, for the third phase of his ad shoot for Gujarat Tourism. Sources in the state government said, "Out of seven ad films, which have time duration of 1 minute each, three films are already made and released, three films are under production and the last will be shot at Saputara, the only hill station of Gujarat located in the Dangs.

Inclusion of tourist destinations such as Rani ki Vav in Patan and Buddhist heritage site at Vadnagar are also being considered for the last ad shoot."

The official further said, "The state government will have to shell out nearly Rs 3 crore towards production of these ad films, which will be made by O&M advertising company. O&M will also be charging an additional amount of Rs 1.2 crore as fees for its creative consultancy."

However, despite the ongoing ad shoot of Amitabh Bachchan for Gujarat Tourism department, it is believed to be one of the lowest priced ad shoots. The reason is that, Bachchan is not charging a single penny as his fees. "Generally, he charges Rs 1 crore per day for ads.

However, having the country's most popular star, as a brand ambassador, could have cost the state government dearly. But the superstar refrained from charging a single penny as fee, to the state government, which is a great achievement on the part of Gujarat Government. Bachchan has already devoted 13 days for the ad shoot for Gujarat Tourism ," clarified Vipul Mitra, secretary for Gujarat Tourism department.

KBC Big Campaign For Big Show With Big B

KBC Big Campaign For Big Show With Big B

The TVCs of KBC-4 strike the chord with the audience; the campaign is conceptualized by Leo Burnett

Koi sawaal chhota nahi hota, obviously anything on Kaun Banega Crorepati won’t be small. The television commercials of Kaun Banega Crorepati are out and have been successfully able to strike the chord with the audience. The TVCs have been conceptualized by Leo Burnett.

The promo opens with a child asking his father ‘Akbar ka baap kaun tha?’. Father doesn’t take question seriously and keep answering his son in a facetious manner. The Father realizes the value of question when Amitabh Bachchan asks him the same question in KBC 4. The promo ends with Amitabh saying ‘Koi sawaal chhota nahi hota’

Sharing the thought process behind the TVC, K.V. Sridhar a.k.a. Pops, National Creative Director, Leo Burnet, said, “KBC is a unique blend of knowledge and entertainment and Amitabh Bachchan also brings with him certain wisdom to the show. Entertainment and knowledge were two aspects we kept in mind while working on the TVC. People do not watch KBC for mere knowledge; entertainment quotient has to be there. The way we have rendered this thought in TVC, it has come out in a humorous manner.”

Commenting on the campaign, Danish Khan, Vice President and Head of Marketing at Sony Entertainment Television, said, “The biggest challenge was the communication, while KBC is a popular format the gigantic task was to present it in a very engaging way. To bring that talk of the town impact we went back to the viewer and society to figure out what do they want. The brief given to Leo Burnett was to create an engaging communication platform so that KBC becomes talk of the town.”

Informing about the response which campaign has got, Khansaid, “We have just released the second TVC on Sunday, 22nd August. The first TVC, which was released on 15th August at the sets of Grand Finale of Indian Idol 5, has received phenomenal response so far. We have made three films and by the end of September it will be one of the most successful ad campaigns on TV. In fact, the second spot brings in flavor to the campaign and the 3rd spot which we’ll launch around mid of the September bring absolutely another sense of adventure, humor, romance along with knowledge to the campaign.”

The TVCs have been shot by chrome pictures.

Abbas Mustan to direct Big B

Abbas-Mustan to direct Big B?  

By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Aug 20 (IANS) Director duo Abbas-Mustan may soon direct Amitabh Bachchan in a film for the first time and the project could be pushed ahead of Abhishek-starrer "The Italian Job".

The film with Big B would be a hard-hitting socially-relevant subject written by Nishikant Kamat who directed the intense anti-terror film "Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan". 

When asked about the project, Abbas-Mustan feigned ignorance.

"We have not approached Amitji for any film," said Abbas initially. Then when told that Big B has confirmed his presence in an Abbas-Mustan film, Abbas sang a different tune. "Yes, we are working with him. But we haven't decided what."
