Hope to meet Big B in Kolkata: Iranian filmmaker

A huge fan of Indian films, award-winning Iranian filmmaker Niki Karimi Wednesday hoped she bumps into Bollywood screen icon Amitabh Bachchan during her stay in the city. Karimi is participating in the 20th Kolkata International Film Festival that kicked off Monday.

Counting Big B’s Amar, Akbar, Anthony’ among her favourites, the actress-turned-director lamented the missed opportunity during the inaugural of the KIFF. ‘I heard that Amitabh Bachchan was here at the inaugural, how come I didn’t meet him? Is he still in town? I would like to meet him,’ a keyed-up Karimi said. Big B is in the city shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.
