To celebrate Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday, the Film Heritage Foundation has curated a film festival for his fans titled – Bachchan Back To The Beginning – that will bring the superstar’s iconic films back to the big screen. The four-day film festival will be held from October 8-11 in 17 cities, with 172 showcases across 22 screens. Moviegoers across the country can catch Big B’s classics like Don, Kaala Patthar, Kaalia, Kabhie Kabhie and Amar Akbar Anthony in theatres.
Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, Director, Film Heritage Foundation, says, “Growing up, I was the biggest Amitabh Bachchan fan. I used to break rules to watch his films in my school days. In fact, in college, I was often thrown out of class for sitting on the back benches and writing notes about his films. I am so glad that the Film Heritage Foundation is paying tribute to him on his 80th birthday with this first-of its-kind, country-wide, four-day festival. ” A special price of ₹80 has been decided for each film (as a nod to his 80th b’day celebration), and those who want to watch all the films can purchase a special movie pass for ₹400.
