To mark the occasion, his brother, yesteryear film producer Anwar Ali, is hosting a week-long screening of the legendary comedian’s popular film, ‘Bombay to Goa’ in the city.

The film, which also featured superstar Amitabh Bachchan, will be showcased during the second week of April. The screening is part of an elaborate tribute spanning nine months.

The first event in this series was a comedy evening helmed by Vir Das and radio legend Ameen Sayani earlier this year. Anwar says that they decided to screen only ‘Bombay to Goa’ as it is an iconic film that holds relevance in today’s times as well. “It will be a delight to watch the film on the big screen after a gap of more than four decades.

We’re glad that Amitabh Bachchan will be flagging off the week-long screenings,” he says. He adds that they also want to screen other Mehmood starrers. “But we are still in discussions about that,” says Anwar.
