Amitabh Bachchan, the name says it all. The global artist, who has been an inspiration to many in different walks of life, turns 80 and his admirers all over the world can’t keep calm. His art has and still has a mesmerising effect on cinephiles. He is what many would dream of becoming one day. Celebrating his birthday, film festivals are being organised all over India and tickets have been priced at Rs 80 so that everyone can relive the magic on the big screen. Celebrities too are excited. They talk about the Big B film they would like to see in theatres and why; and also shares a message for him on his birthday:
Neelu KolhiI am his fan forever. From Kala Pathar to Satte Pe Satta to Deewar to all his films and the magic he has created in this industry, I would like to go and see it all once again. Even my friend is a crazy fan, so we both could do this from the start to the end of the day.
Nivedita BasuSo, Amitabh Bachchan’s brother Mr Ajitabh Bachchan happens to be a very good friend of mine. So, whenever we meet, we take a trivia from him about how they were as kids and some interesting stories. He told us about the accident incident and how strong Mr. Bachchan is mentally and physically, how he bounced back from the major internal injury. I don’t know if there’s a single person in this country who doesn’t know Amitabh Bachchan and doesn’t worship him. There’s one film of his which I love the most is Satte Pe Satta, it was the movie which came when we were in our college, I guess.
Hiten PaintalYes, 11th October is Mr. Bachchans 80th birthday. Besides being my father’s friend and doing a lot of films with him, I am a very big fan. I’ve met him on multiple occasions, interacted with him and also did a Parker pen advertisement with him. I had a great experience of working with him. I am so happy that the Amitabh Bachchan festival is going to happen all over India and they are providing tickets at ₹80. I love all of his movies, especially Namak Halal, Satte Pe Satta. Not only because my father was also there, but it was a great film. I would definitely love to go and watch all his films. On the 9th October there’s a festival where my father has been invited to watch the film Satte Pe satta at the PVR, which is very exciting. I want to tell those few who haven’t seen Amitabh Sir’s movie in the theatres to please go and watch these films because it’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience. My message: ‘I want to pray to God to bless you with good health, lots of success, and you keep Entertaining and inspiring us every day, Amit Uncle. Always be the charismatic, amazing human being you have been and wish to celebrate another 100 years of yours. Happy birthday Amit Uncle’.
Rohit ChaudharyIt’s a big thing for our country to have a true legend like Amitabh sir with us and all the people who love him and inspire to be like him one day. He’s a very humble man. He’s the only man I think who hasn’t had any controversies or anything. Earlier when he had met with an accident, with people’s blessing he came back. Today also he’s working with so much love towards his work. He never gets tired. He inspires us all. He’ll always be the greatest of all. Obviously, a grand celebration on his birthday is a must. All of his movies, Satte Pe Satta, Zanjeer, Namak Halal are his best films. He’s got a tag of angry young man from his movie Zanjeer, which is also said to be the movie which got him a lot of name, fame and success. I wish to God that he stays healthy like this always and lives a very long life. There’s a spark in him which makes us fall in love with him every time. I believe KBC would have never got the fame if it wouldn’t have Mr. Amitabh Sir. There’s no one in this industry who can beat him. He’s the best and a superb hero. Happy birthday Sir.
Ishaan Singh ManasOut of all the films being shown in this festival, I would like to watch Amar Akbar Anthony. It’s a three-hour long classic! I was a kid when I watched it on TV and watching it again on a big screen would be a much better experience. The small details which I must have missed on a TV screen will be clearly visible on a big screen. It’s a classic multi-starrer that has comedy, action, drama, great music and the outstanding performance of Mr. Bachchan which takes the film to another level. On his birthday my message for Mr. Bachchan is that he should keep doing great work as always because we love watching him onscreen playing different characters. At the same time, he should not ignore his health and fitness. Wishing him a very Happy 80th Birthday!
Pranitaa PanditAmitabh Bachchan is one person whose birthday should be celebrated nationwide. I am so glad that we are celebrating it now. Also, all the tickets are priced at ₹80/- it’s such a happy moment for all of us to relive all the memories watching his movies again in the theatres. My favourite movie of all time is Chupke Chupke and I missed watching it on-screen but would love to see it now. A very Happy Birthday sir, wish you a long, happy, healthy and blessed life. He makes 80 look like 50, hats off to him. More and more success to him.
