Bachchan world concert versus SRK world concert
The Bachchan family which has Amitabh, Abhishek and Jaya has now also included the new daughter-in-law Aishwarya Bachchan which makes the Bachchan brand/family one of the most sought after in tinsel town. After the Ash-Abhi engagement was announced, many directors and producers decided to sign Ash-Abhi as a package pair for their films. A prominent entertainment company also signed all three Bachchans, Amitabh, Abhi and Ash for stage shows across various countries. However the grand Bachchan stage shows have been postponed to mid 2008 due to all the stars prior commitments. However now it seems the Bachchans have competition from the badshah of bollywood, King Khan, Shahrukh and his team who are also planning a concert in different countries in April 2008.
The Bachchan world concert titled One Amazing Night was planned for this year, but unfortunately due to the Ash-Abhi wedding and all the members’ prior commitments, the concert had to be pushed back to next year. The Bachchan world concert was to also have other high profile stars like Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra, unfortunately when the concert was postponed both stars opted out. Though Hrithik and Priyanka cited the postponement as a reason not to do the Bachchan concert, it is more likely that they did not want to be overshadowed by the Bachchan brand. Wizcraft Company is organising One Amazing Night and the MD confirms “Yes we are in the process of coordinating the schedules and dates, but we will make a formal announcement only later.” The Bachchan tour will be headed for the US, Europe and Middle East.
Actor Shahrukh Khan has also done world concerts earlier and ‘Temptations’ was one of his most successful shows and now the actor along with some other high profile stars will attempt another concert titled ‘Temptations’. The Shahrukh world concert will be organized by the Morani Brothers and in all likelihood will include Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta; SRK also wants to rope in Priyanka Chopra now who had previously opted out of the Bachchan world concert. Organiser Kareem Morani states “We are still working on the tour, but Priyanka and Rani are likely to be part of the tour. Shahrukh is the only confirmed actor for this 40 day tour.” Morani also confirms that the ‘Temptations’ concert was to be held this year but SRK postponed it to April 2008. The Shahrukh concert is headed for the US, UK and Canada.
Well so it’s the Bachchan world concert versus the Shahrukh world concert as both will be taking place around the same time. It will be quite a treat to see which team gets a better response, because whichever team gets a better response will no doubt reign over bollywood.
