‘JESSICA,’ HE PRONOUNCED, ‘YOU HAVE KNOWN ME FOR SEVEN YEARS. MY LIFE HAS CHANGED SEVEN TIMES. YOU WILL NEVER FINISH THIS BOOK.’
There is no reason why Amitabh Bachchan and I should appear in the same sentences. He is India’s most legendary film star – a mixture of Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino and Elvis, with more than a hint of John Travolta . In a country like India where film stars are treated as gods, Amitabh Bachchan is the Uber-god, the BIG B. as for me, I am English, almost thirty, and not in the least bit famous.
But here I am in Bombay about to start writing his story. How did I get here? Why did I get here? And can I pull it off? Bombay is mayhem and Bollywood maddening . The BIG B strangely aloof, the magazines are full of lies, and no one is talking. I want to write a book that explodes the myths surrounding India’s most famous man. But is there anything in there?
Funny, irreverent and affectionate, LOOKING FOR THE BIG B is a fascinating look at the Bombay film industry and the story of a very unlikely friendship.
