Big B festival


IT IS going to be an Amitabh Bachchan film festival, as he is going to have one release every week for the next one month! On June 11, it was Govind Nihalani's "Dev" in which Big B plays a top police officer trying to protect a riot torn city. In Farhan Akhtar's "Lakshya", releasing on June 18, he is a colonel in the Indian Army. In Milan Luthara's "Deewar", releasing on June 25, Bachchan is a prisoner of war trying to escape from a high security jail in Pakistan. And on July 2, there is that romantic Vivek-Oberoi- Aishwarya Rai starrer "Kyon Ho Gaya Naa..", in which he plays a crucial role. Will all this lead to over-exposure? Bachchan disagrees: "I am no longer the hero in my films. Today I do only character roles which take just 15 to 20 days to shoot."
