Amitabh Bachchan enjoyed a rare day off this Ganesh Chaturthi by watching the classic The Godfather series. “On a rare off day today (Thursday), I remained that lazy unperturbed bird, curled up on a couch and back to back watched the Godfather Series — perhaps a version which was the director’s cut and so a longer version and having scenes that were not seen before,” posted the 68-year-old on his blog.
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, the first instalment of the underworld saga came in 1972 with power-packed performances by Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. Parts II and III were released in 1974 and 1990, respectively.
“There is something so mesmerising about Godfather that even after so many years of its making and release, it still remains fresh and attractive every time you see it. The selection of the players in each part of ‘Godfather’, the locations and the performances are simply flawless.” he wrote.
