Big B sees cinema as an integrator
‘Cinema in today’s times is perhaps the only integrator left, in this fast disintegrating world ... Proud to be in its fraternity,’ the 71-year-old tweeted Sunday.
A star, who rose on the film firmament during the 1970s, has so far retained his charm and his fan following is growing even today. If he was known for big hits like Deewar, Zanjeer, and Don during his prime, in the past over a decade he showed his versatility with films like Baghban, Sarkar, Bunty Aur Babli and Paa.
His wife Jaya, son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai are also film stars.
He will turn 72 Oct 11 and his kitty is full with assignments – he has Vidhu Vinod Chopra-produced film in hand and he recently wrapped up filming for R. Balakrishnan aka Balki’s Shamitabh.
Currently, Amitabh is hosting reality game show Kaun Banega Crorepati on the small screen.
