A source informs, “The newly launched Reliance Film marketing company met Bachchan and finalised the show in the last week of May. It will be a huge event which may be held in one of the stadiums in Mumbai and practically everyone from the industry will be present to witness Mr Bachchan being felicitated."
It will be a complete recall, as the all the significant people who contributed in Bachchan's career will share their memories about the star.
Amitabh fans will also have a chance to catch up on his old classics. The source adds, "The second part of the celebration includes a carnival of Amitabh’s old blockbusters. The idea is that this generation, who has not seen his films in theatres, can do so. This carnival will be held after Amitabh’s birthday on October 11. Films like Shakti, Sholay, Deewar, Trishul, Do Aur Do Paanch, Zanjeer, among others will be re-released.”
