Amitabh Bachchan wears sunglasses worth 2.7 lakh

Amitabh Bachchan “Shehenshah of Bollywood” will be seen wearing Rs. 2.7 lakh worth Rayban sunglasses in his forthcoming film ‘Zamaanat’. The film is due to be released next week.

Meanwhile the Income Tax (IT) department on Friday denied that it had served any notice to the Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan asking him to explain the purchase of the Ray Ban glasses.

A TV channel had earlier reported that the IT department had issued a notice to Amitabh on the basis of his purchasing the sunglass. The channel also said that Big B later gifted the sunglass to filmmaker S Ramnathan on completion of the film.

“We clarify that the Income Tax department, Mumbai has not issued any notice to Amitabh Bachchan with reference to media reports that the actor had purchased sun glasses in New York valued at Rs.270,000,” H Tulsyan, Chief Commissioner Income Tax Mumbai, told IANS.

“There were several misleading reports in certain sections of the media. The media has been reporting that Income Tax department Mumbai has issued a notice asking the actor to explain the purchase of sun glasses in New York. We have not issued any such notice to Amitabh Bachchan,” he added.

The sunglasses have bifocal lens and also serve as regular spectacles. Moreover, Italian frames by designer Roberto Cavalli are used; prices start at Rs 40,000.

    Amitabh supporters ransack IT offices

    2006/6/12 17:35:51

    An angry mob in Allahabad has ransacked the offices of the income tax department.

    The people, claiming to be supporters of Amitabh Bachchan, were angry with the Mumbai IT department for serving a notice to the Bollywood star.

    The move followed a press report that Amitabh had used sunglasses worth Rs 2.7 lakh during the shooting of the film Zamanat.

    The IT department had subsequently denied sending any such notice, but it seems that people in the actor's hometown have decided to pay no heed to the department's denial.

    Aishwarya Rai's Rs.1 million sunglasses

    2008/5/19 12:29:22

    The gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan reportedly made the producers of Sarkar Raj shell out Rs.1 million for designer sunglasses for her look in the film.

    Apparently, Ash herself chose the glares that made a big hole in the producers' pocket. Obviously, the price tag left the production houses, K Sera Sera and Z Picture Company, reeling.

    Ash plays Anita Rajan, an aggressive and ambitious business tycoon - she is the CEO of a power plant.

    According to a source from the production house, Ash was given a pair of designer glasses as part of her look in the Ram Gopal Varma directed film.

    But the Bachchan bahu didn't like the sunglasses much and told the producers that she would get a pair for herself. It sounded fine, until the bill arrived.

    Ash didn't settle for anything regular. The source added that she finally selected a pair of Gucci sunglasses from Harrods when she was in London.

    The glares do make a style statement as far as her look in the film is concerned, but the production house could not digest the idea of her wearing such expensive glasses, especially since they had to settle the bill.

    Sarkar Raj also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan in pivotal roles.

    Rituparno's The Last Lear has no takers

    2008/1/9 12:03:18

    The Last Lear has been on the international festival circuit for a while now but there are still no signs of a theatrical release. The buzz is that the Rituparno Ghosh-directed English language film for Planman Motion Picture Company, has no takers.

    The few distributors for whom the film was screened have shied away. The none-too-flattering reviews haven't helped either.

    The film's producer, Arindam Chaudhuri, however insists that audiences at Toronto, London, Rome, Dubai and Goa have given his film the thumbs up. Chaudhuri hopes to release the film in April, with TV promos staring in February .

    Planman will also release Rajat Kapoor's Mithya and Saurabh Shukla's I am 24 this year..

    Digital ke side-effects

    What about Rituparno Ghosh's Sunglasses with Jaya Bachchan, Konkona Sen Sharma and R Madhavan? The film was wrapped up months ago.

    "Sunglasses will come later this year after the three films. We need a gap of a month or two.. so the releases are well spaced out. Sunglasses has taken a while because of its extensive post-production. Its digital effects have taken time," explains Chaudhuri.

    Chaudhuri believes that Ghosh's cinema targets a niche market. "With increasing multiplexes their numbers are growing," he states.

    The trade gup is that Ghosh has overshot the budget, adding to Planman's woes.

    "Given The Last Lear's star cast - Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta and Arjun Rampal - it's a reasonably budgeted film. A commercial film with the same actors would have cost so much more," he argues.

    And the AB-SRK war continues

    2006/12/6 19:27:16 What happens when two titans come face to face in the competitive arena in Bollywood? Fire works, ego clashes and a war of words is inevitable. Like the Amitabh Bachchan-Shah Rukh Khan war which was one of the biggest star wars first reported in July, 2005. It was alleged that whatever Amitabh did, Shah Rukh wanted to do the same, but bigger and better.

    Even if it meant doing a remake of the Amitabh Bachchan hit Don or endorsing the same brands as Big B or working with the same banners, SRK did not shy away from the opportunity to match footsteps with the stalwart. With Shah Rukh Khan taking over the KBC mantle from Amitabh Bachchan, their war has reached another level. All this and more, when the two vehemently deny any such bad vibes.

    Amitabh Bachchan's portrayal of 'Sexy Sam' wows audiences, critics

    2006/8/26 14:08:17

    Amitabh Bachchan 's portrayal of the 'sexy' and 'young-at-heart' sexagenarian Sam in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna , who believes in living life to the fullest and wears his heart on his sleeves, has endeared him to the audiences across the country and abroad.

    At a time, when most of his contemporaries in the film Industry like Dharmendra , Shatrughan Sinha or Vinod Khanna have either gone into semi-retirement or seen largely in grandfatherly roles in films, it seems life on celluloid has just begun for Bachchan.

    His portrayal of Sam in the Karan Johar magnum opus has been hailed by critics as unique in the history of Indian cinema with the youthful fervour and vibrancy infused into the character by the Bollywood mega superstar.

    Trade analysts say audiences have fallen in love with the character of Sam played by Bachchan who on the one hand, comes across as an incorrigible flirt while on the other he is also seen as an intensely emotional father whose heart bleeds when he sees his son's marriage breaking apart.

    Critics feel the beautiful combination of joviality and frivolity with pathos in Bachchan's portrayal of Sam's character puts him in the league of the best of Hollywood actors.

    Bachchan's 'below-the-belt' comments in the film in presence of his son kept audiences, specially in the cities, laughing in the ailes, providing the much-needed comic relief in the otherwise serious film.

    At the same time, his emotional scenes like the one where he feels crestfallen seeing his son's marriage break apart and the scene after the 'Rock and Rock Soniye' song where he suddenly gets emotional on watching his son and daughter-in-law ( Rani Mukherjee ) fighting make the audience's relate with character.

    Observers say Bachchan's portrayal of the character of Sam in 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' is first of its kind in the history of Bollywood.

    Shah Rukh Khan is said to have commented recently that he wished he would also get to play a character like Sam when he is 60.

    In fact, they say that of all the characters in the film, Bachchan's is the most endearing, apart from that of Abhishek Bachchan .
