The 50th Film Festival of India (IFFI) will pay tribute to Amitabh Bachchan, this year’s Dadasaheb Phalke award winner, by organizing a special screening of his films. For the retrospective, Bachchan has selected six films–Black (2005), Dewar (1975), Piku (2015), Sholay (1975), Badla (2019) & Paa (2009)–which will get screened at different venues.
A special screening of the festival has dedicated to Bachchan, wherein his fans will be able to watch a selection of his old and new films. To accommodate all the movie buffs, multiple screenings of these films had planned.
A source says, “Amitabh Bachchan has picked six of his films for IFFI, each one for a special reason. These movies include iconic hits like Sholay and Deewar to this year’s films like Badla. While Sholay was a masterpiece that started a different genre of cinema, Piku is one of the best films of recent times.
Every year, for Dadasaheb Phalke award winner’s retrospective, the award winner asked to pick the films that he or she wants to get screened at IFFI. The source adds, “The idea is that when the fans watch these films, they should know that their hero wants them to see this film and he selected it for them.”
