They say Bollywood is one big family. And attending premieres of
each other's films certainly a part and parcel of the ways of the
tinsel town. In a latest, Amitabh Bachchan has confirmed that Aamir
Khan and Shahrukh Khan will grace the premiere of Paa,
where Big B plays a 13-year old boy afflicted by the rare disease
Bachchan writes on his blog, "And now for the bad news. The
London and Dubai premieres stand cancelled. Several issues have
cropped up and it would not be prudent to go ahead with it, under
such uncertain pressures and circumstances. But Mumbai is on ... at
the IMAX Wadala on the 3rd of December and Aamir and Shahrukh have
both assured me of their presence there, today, as I begin to send
out letters and requests to block said date from the Industry."
In the same post, Bachchan praised the regional press for their
incisive questions and informed fans that he's going to Chennai to
'get an idea of the mechanics that go behind a final product -
background and sound and effects and titles and sub titles.'
Sure, there's a lot that goes behind making a film. Especially,
when you have the biggest star of Bollywood in it.
