While the entire world is widely raving and admiring about India's winning of Golden Globe awards, here's one man who's not so happy with Director Danny Boyle's underdog drama SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE winning the Golden Globe. And that is none other than our megastar Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. Reason being - showcasing India in the poor light.
Writes Big B in his blog, ''If SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE projects India as Third World dirty under belly developing nation and causes pain and disgust among nationalists and patriots, let it be known that a murky under belly exists and thrives even in the most developed nations. It's just that the SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE idea authored by an Indian and conceived and cinematically put together by a Westerner, gets creative Globe recognition. The other would perhaps not.''
He further added, ''The commercial escapist world of Indian Cinema had vociferously battled for years, on the attention paid and the adulation given to the legendary Satyajit Ray at all the prestigious Film Festivals of the West, and not a word of appreciation for the entertaining mass oriented box office block busters that were being churned out from Mumbai. The argument. Ray portrayed reality. The other escapism, fantasy and incredulous posturing. Unimpressive for Cannes and Berlin and Venice. But look how rapidly all that is changing. Retrospectives in Paris and New York. Dedicated TV channels running Hindi cinema on prime timings. Premiers at Leiscester Square, the home of all Hollywood royalty, thronged by hundreds on the street in cold biting weather. Affable recognition at most corners of the universe... And a dear friend from Los Angeles wires in that Hollywood is abuzz with India and the phenomenal talent that exists there. We're talking cinema still!''
Well Big B has shared his opinions now we would like to know what you have to say about the same
