Paa-The Baritone-voiced Legend at work again

Do you remember the scene in Slumdog Millionaire where the slum kid, Jamal, locked in a makeshift toilet jumps into a pile of shit just so that he can get to meet his favourite superstar Amitabh Bachchan and get his autograph. He stands there covered in a poop suit, next to the iconic superstar who signs his dog-eared photograph.

I am a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan(i know, i know who isn’t?) and while I wouldn’t go to these extreme measures, I sure do wish I can get to meet him someday.

I grew up watching him make even incredulous scenes credible, and listening to his wonderfully deep baritone voice threatening the bad guys. He has such a massive and unique repertoire of work and even today continues to astound us with his performances. Amar Akbar Antony, Sholey, Chini Kum, Don, Satte pe Satta…I mean ,you name it and his performance is just outstanding.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS HIM???

When I saw this promo picture from his latest movie paa I was speechless. It’s tremendous don’t you think. He plays the character of ‘Auro, a 13 year old child suffering from progeria. Progeria is a terminal disease; a rarest of rare genetic disorder in which a child begins to age at a rapid pace and dies before hitting teens.

Amitabh Bachchan will be playing son to parents Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan in the Balki directed Paa. I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
