Highlight Story

Amitabh BachchanProducers of Bachchan's forthcoming film Rann are all set to play homage to the star in a distinct way. The actors's 40-year-old journey would be captured by forty actors who'll dress up like him.

Bachchan would be invited by producers of Rann, Sheetal Talwar and Madhu Mantena to a suburban theatre at 7 pm tonight for a promotional event. However, in reality, the event is being held to celebrate his four decades in the film industry.

Forty of his fans who are also actors will be dressed as Bachchan’s most memorable characters and mouth his dialogue from the film.

Co-producer Talwar informs a daily, “Mr Bachchan’s 40-year-old journey in Hindi cinema is exceptional in every sense. He started his career with Saat Hindustani in 1969 and that’s where our staged homage begins.”

The homage is meant to be a surprise for Bachchan. “Mr Bachchan thinks we’re inviting him to an event related to Rann. He doesn’t know about the homage yet,” chuckles Sheetal.

It's certainly not a surprise anymore!
