A ten-day film festival, dedicated to Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, is attracting droves of Big B fans in the city.

Despite initial hiccups when it started on March 31, the Pink City film festival is going on well, the event's Creative Director Anoop Srivastava said on Sunday.

The venue at the Ambedkar Circle in Jaipur showcases sets of the film Black, costumes worn by the actor, rare photographs as also a painting exhibition by local artist Rajpal Singh who has depicted Bachchan in various moods.

Two books Amitabh Tujhe Salaam edited by Shyam Mathur and Main Amitabh Bachchan Bol Raha Hoon by Sumant Mishra were also released during the festival, which concludes on April 9.

Actors Govinda and Sunil Shetty had enthralled audiences with mesmerising performances at the festival's opening ceremony on March 31.
