Amitabh Bachchan who celebrated 100 years of Indian Cinema in Chennai, seems to be upset by the fact that such an event was not conducted in Mumbai. He was invited for the event by the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce and felicitated by Pranab Mukherjee, President of India. Bachchan was quite impressed by the event which was supported by Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Dr J Jayalalitha.
The Sholay actor posted, “What an event. They decorated all the elders of the cinema world not just from the South but from all parts of the country, in all different languages. We in the North and in Mumbai have done nothing on this occasion, but the South does and humbles us all. What a fantastic gesture!! Most grateful and so thankful.”
It is evident that he was upset over the fact that such an event was not conducted in Mumbai but going by the power and influence he has, he could have organized an event like that himself. Wonder what stopped him?
