>> Wednesday, October 21, 2009


Amitabh Bachchan will play a TV channel honcho in the upcoming film Rann and is full of admiration for the media industry.Talking about his relationship with the media over the years, he says: “It has been brilliant. I do believe the media is a very important part of a nation.In a democratic society, we need some people who will keep an eye on everything that is happening in the country and report it to the public as quickly as possible.”He also clarifies that he was not responsible for the ban on the media during the Emergency in the 1970s.

“There were some misunderstandings earlier, at the time of the Emergency, that I was responsible for the ban on the press. Since the media had then banned me, I decided not to interact with them (mediapersons).It went on for several years. But then I had an accident on the sets of Coolie and the mediapersons wrote some wonderful things to encourage me to fight back. It was extremely generous and sweet of them to do that and we restarted our relationship,” he adds.

The much-anticipated Ram Gopal Varma film is expected to release early next year.
