Amitabh Bachchan's Bhoothnath Returns will release in Pakistan the same day as it does in India. Big B is very happy that the neighbouring country is welcoming indian films. "I am very happy. We promoted the film in Pakistan through video call, and it is nice to know that they are welcoming our films in their country," Amitabh Bachchan told.
Bhoothnath Returns after going through so many hurdles finally releases on April 11. Apparently, Amitabh has a huge fanbase in Pakistan, and hence the decision to release in two nations simultaneously. Though, Amitabh doesn't have any memories of Pakistan, he does remember that he visited Pakistan when he was two years with his Late mother Teji.
"My mother was born in Lyallpur, which is now Faisalabad. She studied and spent her life before marriage in Lahore, my grandfather was from Karachi...My mother took me to meet him when once, but I was two years old then and so I have no memories of it," he shared.
"We have many friends there. People from my mothers' time communicate with us, and it's been nice," added the actor.
Asked if he has ever been approached by any party from Pakistan for a collaboration, he said: "No business collaborations, but they (people) keep saying that you have so many fans there. And so, I keep saying 'If you invite me, I'll come'."
Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future and produced by T-Series and BR Films. The film is directed by Nitesh Tiwari.
