I hope ‘Black’ instills the audience with strength: Amitabh Bachchan

New Delhi: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan said that his 2005 film ‘Black’ has started streaming on ‘Netflix’ and he hopes the critically acclaimed drama gives strength and compassion to the viewers.

The film, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, completed 19 years of its release on February 4. Based on the real-life story of Helen Keller, ‘Black’ featured Rani Mukerji as a blind and deaf woman to whom Bachchan played the teacher, Debraj.

Bachchan made the announcement on his ‘X’ page as he shared the trailer for the film.

“It’s been 19 years since ‘Black’ was released and today we’re celebrating its first-ever digital release on ‘Netflix’! Debraj and Michelle’s journey has been an inspiration to all of us and we hope it instills you with strength and compassion,” the 81-year-old wrote in his post.

For his role in ‘Black’, Amitabh Bachchan went on to receive his second National Film Award for ‘Best Actor’. The movie won two more National Awards in the ‘Best Feature Film in Hindi’ category and ‘Costume Design’ for Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s first web series, ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’, will also premiere on ‘Netflix’ this year.
