Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was the chief guest at the closing ceremony of the 10th Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF), heaped praise on the Tamil Film Industry and even donated Rs. 11 lakh. Read on.

Even though Bollywood is bigger in size, it needs to learn from the Tamil film industry, megastar Amitabh Bachchan said here Thursday.

"Bollywood may be bigger in size and popular, but it still needs to learn from the Tamil film industry. I've shot for a few films in Tamil Nadu, and built strong camaraderie with the industry, and in turn have understood how disciplined they are and the affection with which they treated me," Bachchan said at the closing ceremony of the 10th Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF).

"This is something Bollywood needs to learn from them," said Bachchan, who was the chief guest at the event.

"The Indian film industry may be the largest in the world but a major proportion of it consists of the southern film industry. The Tamil film industry is the pivotal part in the south and one can't ignore it come what may," the actor said.

The CIFF, which began Dec 13, ended Thursday. A total of 154 films from over 50 countries were screened at the festival.

Big B donates Rs.11 lakh to CIFF

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan donated Rs. 11 lakh towards the Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF) as a token of appreciation.

"I'd like to donate Rs. 11 lakh towards CIFF for the relentless effort they've put in organize the event. I've come to learn that when CIFF was originally formed in 2003, they struggled to raise funds. I don't want them struggle anymore and therefore have decided to contribute some amount from my end," Amitabh, who was invited as chief guest, told reporters here Thursday at the fest's closing ceremony.

Talking about his passion for cinema, Big B said: "I'd be more than happy to be part of many film festivals and be of some help... even if it means that I should be an usher, I'd be more than happy to help".

The eight-day 10th Chennai International Film Festival screened 154 films.
