Cannes 2013: Why did Vidya Balan get emotional after watching Amitabh Bachchan?

The Ghanchakkar actor who is at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival as a special jury member could not control her emotions  and choked after watching Amitabh Bachchan speak in Hindi

Vidya Balan is a huge Amitabh Bachchan fan. Even after playing the mother of the legendary actor in R Balki’s 2009 film Paa, Vidya continues to get butterflies in her stomach at the very mention of Big B. The Dirty Picture star is on this year’s Cannes jury and is excited about sitting on the same panel that boasts the world-renowned names like Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee to mention a few. The talented actor maintains that the Cannes experience is absolutely surreal for her,but what got her emotional was Amitabh Bachchan’s presence at the French Riviera. Big is at the glamorous do to promote Baz Luhrmann’s kaleidoscopic carnival The Great Gatsby.

“When I saw Mr Bachchan on stage, I choked. I grew up watching Amitabh Bachchan’s films and my niece and nephew who are 21 months old, they know Amitabh Bachchan. Indian cinema and Amitabh Bachchan are synonymous with each other. And when he spoke in Hindi, it was just such a proud moment. Personally, for me to have shared the stage with him and on an international platform where the talk is about India celebrating 100 glorious years, it felt really special. These are the times when you have to pinch yourself and say ‘oh my god, this is for real,” said Vidya in a recent interview

It was an indeed a proud moment for the Indian cinema and it’s fans the world over to get to hear Amitabh Bachchan speak in the national language on the international stage. We at BollywoodLife wish more power and success to Big B!
