It seems Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan grows stronger every passing year like the wine. There are not many actors of his age in Bollywood who works as hard as him. But this 67-year-old veteran is not ready to rest. In fact, he is still ready to take up challenging and unusual roles, thus posing a threat to even young actors including his own son Abhishek Bachchan.
The Big B never runs short of surprises ever since he entered the film industry about four decades ago. The latest being his role as a 13-year-old Auro, a progeria-affected boy (progeria is a rare disorder that shows ageing at a very young age) in Paa. Poster of the film where his son Abhishek carries his real father on his back created lots curiosity amongst the public. That's Amitabh Bachchan for you!
The way he put up Paa premiere was amazing. Believe it or not, he called up each and every people he wanted for the premiere besides sending a personal invitation, that too well in advance so that they could avail the day for it without disrupting their shooting schedules. It was wonderful for a person of his stature to contact everyone personally. He is such a professional.
Well, public will finally get the chance to see him as 13-year-old Auro on the big screens, as Paa releases today with about 700 prints worldwide. It will be a treat to watch him as the son of Abhishek (his son) and Vidya Balan.
Amitabh Bachchan is here to stay for he is still 67 years young. Expect the unexpected from him in the years to come!
