Cinema has brought India, Egypt closer: Amitabh

Interacting with the media at the inauguration of the India by the Nile festival here on Monday, Bachchan noted that the two countries have always enjoyed ‘good relations’ and the bond has been further strengthened by cinema.

“Cinema is a great integrator. Movies give us an opportunity to laugh and cry together. When we go to watch a movie we don’t ask the religion or caste of the person sitting next to us,” Bachchan, who enjoys a huge fan following in Egypt, said. The superstar has been roped in for the third edition of the festival being organised by the Indian embassy in partnership with Egypt’s ministry of culture and tourism as well as the Cairo Opera House.

Bachchan said the festival (March 30 to April 17) is an opportunity to bring the Indian and Egyptian cultures together. Bachchan hoped that more and more Indians will be lured toward Egypt in the near future.
