Reiterating that there is no need to transform Mumbai into Shanghai, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday announced that his government would undertake 'Mumbai Next: MMR Transformation' initiative to make Mumbai metropolitan region (MMR) a global financial, commercial and entertainment hub on its own terms.

The leaders from corporate world and the entertainment industry, including Mukesh Ambani, Amitabh Bachchan, along with experts in select fields would deliberate on transforming MMR. Addressing a press conference, Fadnavis said, "Being Mumbai is the soul of this city and there is no need for making Mumbai a Shanghai or Tokyo."

He said that the chief minister's office has created a separate cell dedicated to monitor six major infrastructure projects for Mumbai which would bring about this transformation. The initiative would be undertaken with close partnership of NGP Mumbai First and the departments concerned of the state government and the BMC, MMRDA, CIDCO, MHADA etc and the cell in his office would monitor the coordination between all the agencies, he added.

Citing that there are 27 reports by various agencies which detail on the potential of MMR, Fadnavis said the World Bank report has pointed out that MMR has a potential of $40-50 billion income in this financial hub. He said that Mumbai Next was aimed at transforming not just Mumbai but its entire surrounding area - the metropolitan region - into a global financial, commercial and entertainment hub.

The government in partnership with Mumbai First has organised a conference about this on Friday. Fadnavis said that Reliance Industries Limited chairman Mukesh Ambani, Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry, actors Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, World Bank representatives and European Union consul generals will participate in the conference.

Amitabh Bachchan: At 73 now I want to be a kid again

Kolkata: Reminiscing the independence and joy of his youth, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan Monday said he wants to be a kid again. "When we were young, we were asked by parents and elders what do you want to be when you grow up... we didn't have an answer at that time, but now at the age of 73, I have an answer... I want to be a kid again," Big B said here. He launched the first look of Bengali film "Open Tee Bioscope" by Shoojit Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri.

 Big B recalled his initial days in Kolkata in the 1960s, and said the city those days was "the most magnificent and the most happening city in the entire country"."Those were the years of getting independence for the first time, being free and being on your own after having lived a very cocooned life with your family or in a boarding school where you were guided by rules and regulations and suddenly you find yourself free," he said.

"It was a great joy, and yes we were young, we were single and we were independent. We did many things which can't be narrated here," the star said. He wondered at the end of the day, "we think are we working for a living or are we living to work"?

Dhanush, Akshara’s bonding with Big B

Mumbai: Dhanush and Akshara shared a karmic connection with Amitabh Bachchan during the shooting of R. Balki’s  Shamitabh. The two Tamil actors’  ‘Rajinikanth’ and ‘Kamal Haasan’ connection immediately stuck a chord with Big B who told the two actors to “chill” in his presence.

Tamil star Dhanush and debutante Akshara Haasan’s bonding with Big B during the shooting of Shamitabh is the stuff legends are made of. Initially the two youngsters were awestuck and speechless. But in no time they were interacting like buddies. “As usual,” says a source from the sets, “This is the way Mr Bachchan likes to be with his co-stars. Sadly, a lot of them do not respond to Big B’s request for camaraderie because of their inherent fear of acting too familiar with the legend.”

But Big B is adept at breaking down generation-driven walls. Recently, when he was shooting a song with Yo Yo Honey Singh, he effortlessly put the reverent rapper at ease. The two ended up getting along like buddies. The same is true with Dhanush and Akshara who knew each other very well from before and were collectively in awe of Big B. That changed in no time.

Says Balki, “Amitji is the most chilled-out guy on any set. He hates it when his co-actors get nervous just because they are much younger. He is like a buddy with his own son, Abhishek and he likes the same kind of camaraderie with his junior co-stars. In my film, it was very important for all the three main actors too be very comfortable with one another.”

It was Amitabh Bachchan who took the initiative of bringing Dhanush and Akshara out of their shell. Soon the three of them were sharing music and cinema anecdotes. Says Balki, “When you see the film you’ll realise how deep the bonding is between Amitji, Dhanush and Akshara.” The super-icon has in fact never shared such an easygoing rapport with his young co-stars before. “Initially, Dhanush and Akshara treated Mr Bachchan as Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan’s contemporary. But that soon changed. We became like one family,” says Balki.

Daughters are soul of the house, they are special: Amitabh Bachchan

Kolkata: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says daughters are the reason of happiness of every house and they should be treated with care and warmth. The 72-year-old actor spoke about the importance of daughter in one's life while describing his experience of shooting for for Shoojit Sircar's 'Piku', where he plays a father.

"Daughters are special... Very special... They become the soul of the home... They are the reason for the warmth that embraces us all, they conduct, command, secure, analyse, dictate, rule, govern and spread that tender thread which binds an entire family together. They are reason... They are consult. They are opinion. They are guidance," he posted on his blog.

 The 'Bhoothnath Returns' star said father-daughter love is one, which he can vouch without any reservation, that exists throughout the world. Bachchan posted some off-screen photos with Deepika Padukone, who plays his daughter in the film.

"These are not what could be seen in 'PIKU', these are affectionate moments, off camera, but ones that reflect the relationship between the two - the gentlest of associations between the 'lady of the house' and the one that shall always have soft corners for them," he captioned the pictures.
