Harivanshrai Bachchan's poetry will be enacted by a ballet troupe from Paris. Amitabh Bachchan is very excited at the prospect and went to Paris for discussing the modalities of a ballet based on his father's poems.

Big B will have to sift through his father’s voluminous works and choose those poems whose images render themselves fluently to the ballet.

“The whole process of selecting those poems that have maximum universal resonance and are suitable of enactment in the ballet form is wonderfully exciting," says Amitabh.
