Amitabh Bachchan launches his maiden TV production

It was in 2010, that Anurag Kashyap had lashed out against Amitabh Bachchan, accusing him of calling up the producer of ‘Chittagong’, to postpone the release in order to safeguard Abhishek Bachchan’s film on the same subject.

But that acrimony is truly a thing of the past. Not only did Bachchan invite Anurag’s crew to shoot at his bungalow for Bombay Talkies, earlier, when Steven Spielberg came to town, the veteran actor introduced him as the face of new Indian cinema. The bonhomie reached a new high last evening, when Anurag came on board Bachchan’s fiction project for television as creative director.

It was here that you first read about Bachchan’s big TV designs (Bachchan to shine as daily star, February 13). Last evening, the actor officially launched the show, a fiction series on social issues that will go on floors in December. He is slated to act in the series as well.
