AMITABH BACHCHAN

Aamir Khan, Yash Chopra, Guests of Honour at the launch of Amitabh Bachchan's biography, 'Bachchanalia'.

How does a man as modest as Amitabh Bachchan react when someone opts to pen a 'biography' of his? "I hate it," he says almost immediately. But the legendary actor had reason enough to give the nod to Neville Tuli, the Father of Osian's a pioneering arts institution founded in the year 2000, to publish and design 'Bachchanalia: The Films and Memorabilia of Amitabh Bachchan'. Osian's already boasts of an auction house, archive and film house, its world-renowned film festival... and now with 'Bachchanalia' it achieves one more milestone as it launches its publishing and design division.

Penned by Bhawana Somaya with the support of Osian's Centre for Archiving, Research and Development (CARD), 'Bachchanalia' adopts an interesting format for a biography. Amitabh tells us, "It's not the heavy reading type of book that's filled with words. This particular 'biography' is very pictorial and boasts of archaic priceless poster designs. It's very interestingly done with snippets of my films, and interesting trivia."

'Bachchanalia' will be launched in style on January 3, 2009 at Tata Theatre, NCPA, 7:30 p.m. The grand event will include Vintage Memorabilia Exhibition from the Osian's Collection; an Audience with Amitabh Bachchan. And while filmmaker Yash Chopra will be the Chief Guest, actor Aamir Khan will be the Guest of Honor at this exclusive do, where entry is by Invitation Only.
