New Delhi: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan accompanied by film director Shoojit Sircar and son Abhishek Bachchan attended the screening of ‘Piku’ at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday, and said President Pranab Mukherjee absolutely loved the movie, which is about a Bengali family.
“The Honourable President of India Shri Pranab Mukherji, tonight watched ‘PIKU’ and may I say with great reserve of modesty, he absolutely loved it! Most particular he seemed to have enjoyed the ‘perfect’ Bengali-Hindi accent, which he felt was flawless. He later invited us over for dinner and we continued to discuss the film and its merits,” Bachchan posted on his blog last night.
Last year the actor’s film ‘Bhootnath Returns’, which highlighted the importance of voting, was screened for the President. Bachchan thanked the President for bestowing the honour once again.
