Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s film ‘Pink’, which was based on crime against women, has been invited for a special screening at the United Nations head quarters in New York by the Assistant Secretary General.
The 73-year-old actor, who plays a lawyer in the film, took to Twitter to make the announcement. Pink, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and produced by Shoojit Sircar, also starred Taapsee Pannu, Andrea Tariang and Kirti Kulhari in lead roles.
Pink saw Big B playing the lawyer to three women accused falsely for defamation and assault. The film focussed on sensitising police and society on women related cases and their social stand in the society.
Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s comedy “Lage Raho Munnabhai” was the first Hindi film to be screened at the UN. Now, Pink is the next one which will get the rare honour of screening at UN.
It released on September 16 this year.
