The Last Lear premieres in Delhi

The premiere in Mumbai of Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 'The Last Lear' put off and cancelled after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) attacked the cinema hall where the film was to be screened, but Mr. Big B and his entire film crew is ready for the red carpet scheduled to on Thursday. The premiere at some Selected City PVR Multiplex will be a glittering affair and producer Arindam Chaudhuri, director Rituparno Ghosh and Amitabh and rest of the cast except Preity Zinta will attended the same.

'Delhi premiere is not the last minute decision. We had planned three premieres of the film - Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. Mr. Bachchan is excited about the Delhi premiere of 'The Last Lear',' Amit Saxena, president strategy team Planman Motion Pictures, told us. He also says that the incident has not at all disrupted the publicity or the screening plans. 'There is hardly any change in the publicity campaign or the release schedule. Unexpected things came up and we had to deal with it. Anyway, Raj Thackeray has accepted Mr. Bachchan's apology so that the controversy is over,' said Saxena.

MNS chief Raj Thackeray had called for a ban on the screening of films starring any of the Bachchan family as a protest against actress and MP Jaya Bachchan's alleged 'anti-Marathi' remarks at the music release function of Drona.
