||Amitabh Bachchan Memories
"There were meetings on
promotional activity - visits to Dubai perhaps and the Hard Rock Cafe to
accompany Vishal and Shekhar as they perform live on stage some of the
songs from the film 'Bbuddah' smash a guitar as an honour from the facility,
ride a Harley...gosh this is like being back in University again," Big
B said on his blog.
Sharing his memories about
college days, Big B said, "The freedom to move independently, to follow
opinion away from the norm, to become temporarily impressed by pseudo dudes,
to lumber up to girls at the bus stop, hands in pocket of unwashed for
a year jeans, and the only one you had, shirt collars up, Elvis Presley
in making side locks, the only book of study in the hip pocket, and wondering
why none of the girls was noticing you!!."
||"What a time we would
have then! Bunking class, jamming at restaurants and coffee joints with
the 'gang', buzzing off on picnics in borrowed cars and scooters and then
dragging ourselves home looking most studious and overworked in College!!
We were incorrigible were we not," the 68-year-old actor said.
MF Hussain, artist, painter,
friend ... passes away ! Sad, very sad! Many of his works and gifts adorn
my home..Hussain's best painting gift to me..a Hanuman with 'jadi buti'
flying .. given to me in Breach Candy Hospital, during Coolie episode.
Another special painting he did for me .. translated my poem I wrote in
Hospital, on canvas ... very special and most endearing !! Amitabh Bachchan
wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Directed by Poori Jagannath,
'Bbuddah Hoga....'is a romantic comedy about an angry old man, played by
Bachchan, who gets into trouble because he loses his cool easily.
"One could get past Dad,
but Moms always knew! How did they ever come to gather what we had been
up to! Ha ha!!. Ah! those days of college and university. How can we ever
forget them! Sad they got over in 3 years," Bachchan said.
And the music...never
went beyond Elvis, and for the more intellectual, Miles Davis and Zoot
Sims! Any one remember those fantastic jazz artists?? Astounding!!, he
