Amitabh Bachchan will next be seen in Bombay Talkies, which celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema. From the time when society looked down upon film people to now when children from well-off families are aspiring to make career in filmdom, Indian cinema has come a long way in the last 100 years, says Amitabh Bachchan.
The Indian movie industry completes 100 years this year.
"In these 100 years we have done a lot of progress, at least for the society. Earlier, film stars were looked down upon in the society, but now we have reached a stage where children from well-off families aspire to become a part of the industry," Amitabh said.
As a part of centenary celebrations, four filmmakers - Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap - have come together to make Bombay Talkies.
Releasing May 3, Bombay Talkies unveils four different stories directed by the four directors respectively.
Big B is all praise for the younger generation of filmmakers and said: "I feel great about the new generation because I feel that they are very capable, doing a great job and all of them are moving in the right direction. They are hard working...they show so much talent that we have never seen."
