Big B celebrates 80th birthday with ‘Uunchai’
As Big B fans the world over celebrate Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday on October 11, he marked the milestone by introducing his character from the upcoming film 'Uunchai' along with a new poster.
Taking to his social, Big B dropped a poster along with a caption. The poster depicts the two sides of the Bollywood superstar. One is seen sitting in the backdrop of a hilltop amid a mesmerising view of the Himalayas. On the other hand, he seems to be the centre of attraction for all the women around him.
Earlier, on the occasion of Friendship Day, Bachchan had unveiled the first poster of his film 'Uunchai'.
The film is directed by Sooraj Barjatya under the Rajshri production banner. The film, which is set to hit the theatres in November, also stars Neena Gupta and Sarika, with Parineeti Chopra in a special appearance. The film’s line-up also includes Danny Denzongpa and Nafisa Ali Sodhi.
Makers began shooting for 'Uunchai' in October last year in Nepal and wrapped it up in April.
The film marks the directorial comeback of Sooraj Barjatya after his 2015 family drama 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', which starred Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Anupam Kher in the lead roles.
