Amitabh Bachchan and his wife Jaya Bachchan watched Mani Ratnam’s film Raavan at the movie’s grand premiere in London on Wednesday night. And the experience left Big B overwhelmed.
The mega star shared his experience on his blog: “Just back from an overwhelming cinema experience called Raavan and have been stunned at the manner in which any one could think of such visuals, to have kept them in ones' mind for so long and then finally to have spoken up in the shape of film is quite amazing.”
Though he refrained from commenting on the performances by his son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai, the superstar did have praises for director Mani Ratnam.
“Mani Ratnam is one of the greatest assets of cinema that India has. His approach, his mind, his sense of the visual and his brilliance in presenting complex subjects is unique. May he continue to contribute his great talent to our fraternity and may we ever be enlightened by his produce,” Big B wrote.
The film’s premiere at British Film Institute in London was a gala event. Hundreds of fans turned up to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars, including Shahrukh Khan, on the red carpet.
