All roads in Mumbai seem to lead to the birthday bash organized in honour of Amitabh Bachchan by his wife Jaya Bachchan. But a few Bollywood celebs won’t be able to make it.
Jaya Bachchan has organised a mega bash Wednesday to ring in her husband, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday. But actors Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra will not be attending the big bash.
Big B turns 70 Thursday.
Both the actors are rooting for their film Barfi! at the ongoing Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). It has been chosen in the Open Cinema Section.
When contacted, Priyanka's spokesperson told IANS: "Yes, Priyanka is currently at the Busan International Film Festival with Ranbir rooting for 'Barfi!'".
The nine-day film festival will end Oct 13.
Dia sad about missing Big B's b'day bash
The whole of Bollywood is geared up to celebrate megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday, but actress Dia Mirza won't be able to join the mega celebrations.
"Sometimes work takes you away from moments that you really wish to be part of...like tonight Mr. Bachchan's 70th B'DAY celebration," tweeted Dia, who is in Jakarta for some work.
Amitabh turns 70 Thursday, but a special, star-studded celebration is set to witness the Who's Who of the film industry Wednesday night.
Dia Mirza finds the veteran actor "a great inspiration".
"My most memorable film with him is Shoojit Sircar's film ('Shoebite'). Can't wait for you to see it. Epic performance. The amount of work he packs in, his dedication, commitment and love for the craft is just unparalleled. RESPECT," she added.
