And I bring you a song titled "Give it up for Bachchan" from Bombay Talkies! While I trash Anurag Kashyap a lot for his seemingly endless lack of self-awareness, I'm actually really looking forward to his segment of Bombay Talkies. Funnily enough Get Filmy and I talked a lot about this when we met up in New York. (SHOUT OUT!)
We live with these stars, in a way. When we see Amitabh in a film, it's like watching a family friend. There is no way any of these stars could ever live up to the perfect images constructed of them and that gap remains a source of fascination for film fans. Ranbir drunk and partying with girls in Vancouver; family men rumored to have second wives; and my favorite scene in Guddi in which Pran reveals himself to be a perfect gentleman.
(Also, how great is it to hear Sukhwinder Singh again?! I missed those smoky tones.)
