press conference Unforgettable Tour 2008
what a powerful message it's about time this happened right? ? The youtube clip was taken down.. so I'll have to paraphrase
Mr Amitabh Bachchan on why he's bringing the tour to the USA he said something like -- " there is a sort of over-saturation in the west so there is growing interest in other things now.. Indian cinema is gaining credibility where before it wasn't taken seriously... people are interested in Bollywood all over the world now"
(I have to agree with Mr. Bachchan on that ... and "saturation" is a polite understatement.. we're sick of the same old thing over and over here and we want something real!! )
Aishwarya was equally eloquent saying "it's about communication.." "we're all coming together very rapidly! " "there is alot of exchange in every field accross borders"
