Introducing Amitabh Bachchan or describing what he brings to cinema is not an easy task. They call him "Mahanayak". He has been voted the global Star of the Millennium. In B-town, he is the differentiator. There are the boys, the men and then there is the Big B.
It's the same story on TV. Friday through Sunday, viewers tune into Kaun Banega Crorepati just to see Bachchan host the game show. His repartee with the contestants, the ease with which he navigates his superstardom is the hallmark of a great TV host.
On Friday evening, it'll be the turn of Bachchan to be in the hot seat, as he interacts with the cream of the national capital at The Indian Express Adda, a unique series of conversations with individuals at the centre of change.
The Adda series began in August last year in Delhi with marketing and ad guru Martin Sorrell and travelled to Mumbai to host superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The other Adda guests have included The New York Times columnist Thomas L Friedman, editor-author Fareed Zakaria and actor Vidya Balan.
The conversation with Bachchan promises to be a treat. He may have turned selective about his film projects but for someone who has had a Paa and a Black in his recent body of work, the bar indeed has to be high. For a journey that began in 1969 with Saat Hindustani, Amitabh Bachchan continues to live his iconic Kaalia dialogue: "Hum jahan pe khade ho jaate hain, line wahin se shuru hoti hai. (The queue begins from wherever I stand)".
