Hit or flop, Big B is Bollywood’s goldmine

A ghost, an eccentric theatre actor or a flamboyant genie, Amitabh Bachchan has done quite a few over-the-top roles and not delivered big hits in four years. But for filmmakers, the megastar is still a phenomenon they can’t wait to sign on.
"I would love to cast him for all my films. I just hope that I keep getting ideas where I can fit him," said R Balakrishnan, director of his forthcoming film Paa.
Relasing on Dec 4, Paa features Amitabh as a progeria patient.
"Amitabh Bachchan has crossed that mark of a hit or a flop affecting him. He is a phenomenon. He is the first veteran where stories are written keeping him in mind. Whether or not a film works is besides the point. He is not competing with anyone here," said trade analyst Taran Adarsh.(PTI)
