Big B’s Hong Kong boundApril 13th, 2009 - 4:58 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Big B’s ain’t moving out of aamchi Mumbai.
Actually it’s his wax figure that’s shifting from Madame Tussaud’s in London . It’s going to the Hong Kong branch of the organisation for five months. This will make him the first Bollywood star to appear there.
Interestingly the only other Indian figure in Hong Kong at the moment is Mahatma Gandhi.
Brett Pigeon of the organization has said, “”We anticipate that Bachchan’s wax figure will be incredibly popular with the Indian community both in Hong Kong and abroad. So, we’ll definitely explore a more permanent tribute to the Indian film industry at Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong, in future.”
Well, it’s natural as the Indian megastar has been topping quite a few polls and is still popular than many stars much younger than him.
Celeb Track Study recently announced him as India’s Most Powerful Celebrity from a poll of 6000 experts.
A spokesman for the researchers said, “We find that Amitabh Bachchan scores highly in most attributes, including likeability, popularity and persuasion power.”
His dear bahurani Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is popular and she topped the female rankings.
Things are exciting for the 60 plus super star on the work front too as his next movie, ‘Teen Patti’ with R Madhavan and Shraddha Kapoor will also have American actor Richard Gere playing a cameo.
He’s said, “The makers wanted an international name for the cameo. Though other names were also in consideration, they decided on the Pretty Woman actor who is well known to the Indian audience not only as a Hollywood star but also as an AIDS activist who frequently travels to India.”
His long stuck film “Zamaanat’ in which he plays a blind lawyer defending Arshad Warsi will probably also release soon as well as ‘Aladin’, which stars Riteish Deshmukh and Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes.
Work has been slow but progressing on the fascinating ad interesting “Kunal Avadana’ about the relationship between ‘Asoka the Great’ and his blind son Kunal, played by Arjun Rampal which has two leading ladies -Tabu and Amrita Rao.
Lucky Big B sure finds reasons all the time to be happy about! -Sampurn Media
