Why should I love: Amitabh Bachchan?

The fourth installment in our Why should I love? series. We initially were very anti-Amitabh, but we've come around since then - oh, how we've come around.



Why should I love: Amitabh Bachchan?

1. You should love Amitabh because sometimes he gets so excited by your qawwali that he starts singing the refrain.

2. You should love Amitabh because he's not above disguising himself in order to settle a marriage.

3. You should love Amitabh because he has great bedside manner.

4. You should love Amitabh because he is anti-dowry.

5. You should love Amitabh because he sometimes teams up with PRAN!!!

6. You should love Amitabh because sometimes he gets so involved in your ghazal singing that he finishes the whole song.

7. You should love Amitabh because, like Shashi, he cares about worker's rights.

8. You should love Amitabh because he is capable of being a compelling narrator even when not actually narrating.

9. You should love Amitabh because he puts Bruce Lee posters up on his walls.

10. You should love Amitabh because he dishes out revenge like it was a Monopoly game.

You forgot that he rocks bellbottoms better than anyone else, ever. In fact, he may be the only person (well, perhaps Vinod K) who does.

Specifically white flares (bellbottoms) I think memsaab....no one else can wear white flares and not look daft.

re: Memsaab's comment, I was just yelling "not better than Vinod!!!" in my head when I got to her parenthetical comment. They both rock bellbottoms, as watching Parvarish yesterday reminded me.
