To Mehmood, with love: Amitabh Bachchan to pay tribute to comedy legend


This year marks the 10th death anniversary of actor Mehmood. To mark the occasion, his brother, yesteryear film producer Anwar Ali, is hosting a week-long screening of the legendary comedian’s popular film, Bombay to Goa in the city. Flagging off the event will be superstar Amitabh Bachchan who also starred in the film.

The film will be showcased during the second week of April at select PVR screens. The screening is part of an elaborate tribute spanning nine months. The first event in this series was a comedy evening helmed by Vir Das and radio legend Ameen Sayani earlier this year.

Anwar says that they decided to screen only Bombay To Goa as it is an iconic film that holds relevance in today’s times as well. “It will be a delight to watch the film on the big screen after a gap of more than four decades. We’re glad that Amitabh Bachchan will be flagging off the week-long screenings,” he says.
But he adds that they also want to screen other Mehmood starrers. “But we are still in discussions about that,” says Anwar.

Mehmood was not only a friend but also a mentor to Amitabh Bachchan in his early days in the industry.

In fact, the comedian-actor offered him a place to stay in his residence during the latter’s struggling days. Later on, when Mehmood turned producer with Bombay to Goa, he offered Big B his first lead role.
