Big bash for Amitabh Bachchan’s 70th Birthday

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will turn 70 on 11th October this year. So the excitement and celebration plans for the event are quite understandable. The people around him are trying to make the event as Big as the Big B himself. Though, the actor personally doesn’t like to celebrate his birthday with big fan fare.

The actor is at present in England where he is taking part in the Olympic torch relay, a day before the grand opening ceremony. Not only Asians but people from all walks of life lined across both sides of the street to get a glimpse of him. Mr. Bachchan carried the torch through Southwalk in south London.  The iconic star said that it was an “Incredible experience” and something he will cherish all his life.

In the meanwhile, his close friends , designers Abu Jani  and Sandeep Khosla will be in charge of all the planning, which includes deciding the venue , decorations , the food and of course the guest list . The venue will probably be a 5-star hotel in a suburban area as guests from not only India but across the globe will come to this mega and grand event.  They will design what the actor will wear on that day. It has to be something special.

The reasons of the huge celebration are quite obvious. Mr. Bachchan is the face of the Indian film Industry to the world. Bollywood at present is spreading its wing to find a bigger market, spread throughout the globe. It is a global brand in the making.

The makers of KBC (Kaun Banega Crorepati) are also planning something special. They will mark the beginning of the 6th Season of KBC on that auspicious day. The TRP for the show is expected to be on an all time high for that day. In fact they have to make it special, as it was with this show that Big B made a mega comeback.

His recent film “Buddha Hoga Tera Baap” captures the essence and energy with which the actor has worked throughout his life. After his first hit ‘Zanjeer’, he became recognized as the angry young man. He has come a long way after that, carrying the Indian film industry on his strong shoulders. Unlike most of the actors of his generation his charm hasn’t faded away with time. On the contrary it is growing every day. So it really counts to celebrate the legends birthday with pomp and show, with millions of well wishes from his fans.
