The legend returns. Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan will be in Dubai for the premiere of his latest film Bhoothnath Returns on April 9.
“With a legendary actor like Mr Bachchan, we have not organised any mall activity. But his fans will get to see him on the red carpet premiere at 9.30pm,” said organiser Shujah Syed, of Dream Advertising and Ministry Of Events.
Incidentally, April 9 is also Bachchan’s wife, the actress Jaya’s birthday.
Bhoothnath Returns is a sequel to the 2008 comedy Bhoothnath, which had Bachchan playing a friendly ghost to Banku (Aman Siddiqui) who comes to live in Bhoothnath’s house with his parents. Bhoothnath Returns, however, is a different story which will see Bachchan’s ghost character come face-to-face with a corrupt politician, played by Boman Irani, with a little help from a fearless street kid.
The venue for the premiere is yet to be announced.
