Bachchans to attend screening of Chittagong

Much bad blood had flown between the Bachchans and the makers of Chittagong when it was alleged that Abhishek Bachchan had ended up doing a film, Ashutosh Gowariker's Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se, based on the same historical figure Surya Sen on which Chittagong is based.

But now all of the bitterness has been washed away.

And now the Bachchans, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, will attend a special screening of Chittagong in memory of the director Bedabrata Pain's deceased son, on 5th October which would also see a rare showbiz attendance by the eminent television journalist Dr. Pranoy Roy.

Sources say it was Dr. Roy who brought about the rapprochement between the Bachchans and the Chittagong team.

Says our source, "First it was Bedo (Bedabrata Pain) who approached Jayaji. Though she is neck-deep in preparations for the Big B's birthday bash, she agreed to come for the show. But when Bedo tried to invite Mr. Bachchan through Jaya, she advised him to do the needful on his own. Bedo asked Mr. Bachchan and also asked Dr. Roy to put in a word. Not one to hold grudges, Big B immediately agreed to be there for the screening. Shah Rukh Khan who is very close to Dr. Roy has also agreed come for the memorial screening."

Confirming these august presence at his screening, director Bedabrata Pain says, "Yes Amitji and Jayaji have kindly agreed to be there on this very special day in my life. I was very keen that they be there. I had my apprehensions due to what had happened. But not for a minute did they allow any awkwardness to come in the way of their intrinsically generous nature."
