Big B in Bandra
India’s greatest superstar of all time remains the “Big B.”
For those who never heard of Bollywood (is that possible?), Amitabh Bachchan, is the ‘angry young man’ who took Hindi films by storm in the 1970s and 80s.

Wednesday’s “house-warming” was combined with the launch of The Bartender’s new video… The entire place was bursting with talent and instruments. Fabulous!
It was a riot seeing the video together with the folks involved in making it – lots of familiar faces!

It is based on an old hindi film hit “Khaike Paan Banaraswala” re-interpreted “Bartender” style.
