Amitabh Bachchan to be the Bollywood Spokesman in Britain

Amitabh Bachchan has been reportd to be the spokesman of Bollywood to UK. Recently, British Finance minister Gordon Brown visited India and that time both Amitabh and Brown meet at the Yash Raj Film. They have talked about the probable co-operation between the film industries of the two countries. Mr. Brown has offered Big B to work in UK and has assured him to give enough facility to the Bollywood movies to be filmed in UK. Indiafm reported:

“Laughs the Big B, "Yes, we did meet at Yashraj Studio. Though this isn't the first time that Chancellor Brown and I met. He has on other occasions asked me to be part of charitable and social global endeavours, and I've gladly done whatever I could."

"I don't know about that. But yes, he did watch Kajra re. After that we had a fairly detailed discussion. Chancellor Brown wants to extend the parameters of our collaboration with Great Britain. He wants to provide further incentives and facilities to our film industry for shooting in England."

What the Big B desists from stating is that Gordon Brown has zeroed in on the actor as Bollywood's primary ambassador to the UK, and is in the process of formulating ambitious plans to further Indian cinema's reach in Britain.

The Big B reiterates, "Yes, there was a closed-door meeting after the screening of Kajra re. I am certainly willing to represent our industry in every way that I can." People at the Gordon Brown event commented on the glow on the Big B's face. "The glow, as you call it, comes from the fact that my son has made such an impact in Guru and that he's getting married."

This will be a win-win situation for both the country as Bollwood will get technological help from Britain and Britain will be known to the huge population of India which will help Britain to generate a huge amount of money.
