It's raining 'Biopics' in Bollywood! It's a new hit formula and there are several biopics being made on celebrities from various fields, right from Sanjay Dutt to Mohammad Azharuddin. We too have listed down our choice of luminaries, on whom we would love to see a biopic happening. We would love to discover various aspects of their life.

Salman Khan:While brother Arbaaz Khan is, reportedly, not really convinced about the idea of making a biopic on bade bhaiyya Salman Khan, as he feels there is nothing new about him to talk, a biopic on the superstar toh banta hai. Perhaps, the aspiring filmmaker can present the true picture of his bad phase.

Amitabh Bachchan’s Piku connection with his 1971 hit Anand

3 April 2015 1:14 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan who essays the role of Bhashkar Bannerjee in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku, has an old connection with the name – the actor also essayed a role with the same name in his 1981 hit, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand.

Talking about how it is a happy coincidence  director Shoojit Sircar says, “Neither Juhi (writer Juhi Chaturvedi) nor I consciously forged the connection. For both of us, Mr Bachchan was always Babumoshai in Anand. In fact, I don’t recall Mr Bachchan reacting to it, though he did occasionally reminisce about Hrishida’s style of working” and adds, “It was his performance that made the film so real and while his character in Piku is very different, there’s a subtlety here even in the exaggerated portions. I’d say he’s an older Babumoshai.”

Incidentally  Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand happens to be one of Shoojit’s all time favourite films »
