The flood of people was seen in PVR and at two places in Bangalore as the Lamboo Bhai the great actor Amitabh Bachchan came to city with two purposes. The first one is participating in the home banner ‘Paa’ film screening with Karnataka ministers at PVR in the evening and prior to it he took part in the ‘RANN’ promotion activity with Kannada cinema prime actor Sudeep. The stylish Sudeep had acted with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Rann’ that is all set for release all over India soon.
The reason why Amitabh Bachchan mainly came to city is to thank the Karnataka Government that gave 50 percent tax exemption to ‘Paa’ a film on ‘Proogeria’ disease in which the superstar has acted son to his son Abhisekh Bachchan. A new experiment film like ‘Taare Zamin Par’ got the right recognition of 50 percent ET exemption from Karnataka government.
