Jodhpur, March 22:
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is eagerly awaiting his visit to Egypt for the India By The Nile Festival 2015 and hopes to reach out to his fans during his stay.
The 72-year-old will inaugurate the India By The Nile Festival 2015, featuring contemporary and classical music, dance, theatre, visual art, film, food and literature. He will be the guest of honour at the event, where his 1977 hit Bollywood action comedy “Amar Akbar Anthony” will be screened.
The “Shamitabh” actor, who performed with the famous Shillong Chamber Choir and Vienna Chamber Orchestra in Jodhpur on Saturday, expressed his excitement for the trip, on his official blog.
“I am back tomorrow… and then prepare for Egypt and Cairo for the ‘India by the Nile’ festival and activities, starting in a few days,” Big B wrote.
“Egypt was a revelation on my visit there in 90?s… the enthusiasm and the love of the people was incredible and invaluable. It still remains presumably, and I hope that my short visit gives me ample time to reach out to my well wishers and friends,” he added.
The third edition of the festival will take place from March 30 to April 17. It aims at collaborative exchanges between India and Egyptian literary figures, performers and visual artistes, said its official website. (IANS)
