It’s not everyday you get to meet a legend whose name has always floated around from before you can remember – from posters, to films, to even your grandparent’s home. However, Amitabh Bachchanflew to the UK earlier this month to promote his new vocal blogging service, Bachchan Bol. In what he regards as ‘vogging’, the service offers Bachchan‘s fans to have access to his life by receiving regular updates on what he is doing and how he is feeling. There are even a lucky few who could have a surprise personal one to one chat with him, simply by subscribing. With over 2.6 million subscribers in India alone, it’s no surprise Bachchan was keen to launch the service in the UK too.
The new service is both a combination of technological genious and a legend’s vision to keep connected with his fans, who he regards as his ‘extended family’. Clearly Amitabh Bachchan continues to surprise fans beyond the 200 films he has starred in over the past four decades.
Has Bachchan Bol defied the actor’s initial expectations? How does he manage to maintain the ‘vogging’ despite his hectic schedule? How does it make him feel knowing he is keeping his fans updated around the world? You can see all these questions answered and more in our video interview where Desi-Box’s Kiran questions Amitabh Bachchan. We even made him stumble on his words as he gave us a shout-out at the end, check it out!
