Amitabh Bachchan might be an Indian actor, but his reach is international. And now his fans in Poland can get to see him, meet him and even watch his award-winning performance in Paa with him!
The Big B is part of a group of filmmakers and actors invited to the International Festival of Independent Cinema in the beautiful, historical city of Krakow in Poland, that will be on from April 16-25. He will be accompanied by wife Jaya, Balki, Aparna Sen and Kabir Khan (whose New York will also be screened as part of the ‘New Indian Cinema’ section).
A gala screening of Paa where AB and Balki will address the audience, a live appearance on a local TV show, a meeting with University students and a dinner reception hosted by the Indian Embassy — there’s lots on Big B’s itinerary this trip. Poland is waiting for the ‘big’ event, as Januesz Bylinski, Consul General of Poland puts it: “We are proud to host the superhero of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan, who is a great ambassador of Indian culture.”
