Bollywood has been exremely popular all over the world. In recent times many of the bollywood Actors, characters have been used in other ways such as toys (Krish, Ghazini), Or Stickers etc.

Soon we would see Bollywood glam girl Priyanka Chopra as a comic strip heroine in an international comic book series.

British businessman Richard Branson is all for Priyanka Chopra. After showering accolades on the actress, the entrepreneur is keen on turning her into a comic strip heroine for his publishing house, Virgin Comics. The character will look like Priyanka and will also be named after her. With this new facet as a comic strip heroine, Priyanka becomes the first Bollywood star and the second in India (after Sachin Tendulkar) to be featured in Virgin Comics.

An excited Priyanka is all thankful for Branson. She Says: “It’s a great honour. Big filmmakers and actors like John Woo, Nicholas Cage, Shekhar Kapoor and Terry Gilliam are associated with Branson’s comics. Even our Sachin has a comic book series with him. I’m working on two projects. One is a completely fictional story and character. The other will be a super hero who looks like me and will borrow incidents from my life.”

But This is not the first time any Bollywood actor has been roped in for comic book series. Star Comics had created A Superhero was also based on our own Millenium Superstar Amitabh Bachchan named – Supremo. created by None other than Gulzar, It was an instant hit among all the age groups.

amitabh BachchanA lot has been written about Amitabh Bachchan, and his career journey. Its been 4o years since he started his career. His first film Saat Hindustani, I am sure not everyone has seen it. So here I am presenting the synopsis and first videos of the Superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s Saat Hindustani.

Synopsis: A Muslim poet Anwar Ali, along with five other men all from different religions, and from different parts of the country join Maria, a native of Portuguese-occupied Goa, to raise nationalist sentiment in that state by hoisting Indian flags on Portuguese forts and buildings. In the process they find unity and abandon their religious and regional differences.  (Courtesy: IMDB)

This is the story of Saat Hindustani, in which the character Anwar Played by a Slim, Tall, actor, got his first National award for the most promising newcomer. That actor was none other than Amitabh Bachchan.

Did you know that Tinnu Anand was supposed to play one of the seven protagonists in the movie, the director Khwaja Ahmad Abbas decided to cast a newcomer Amitabh Bachchan over Tinnu Anand. 

It was 40 years ago, back in 1979 1969, when he started his career as an actor, and what a career!!
