Shamitabh! Shamitabh!

We are at the grand

success party of LIFEBUOY...

A film with a rank newcomer...

who has taken bollywood by storm

Javed sir... Javed sir...

This is the beginning of a storm...

A storm that comes once in 40 years...

and changes the landscape

$10 Million in its opening weekend!!!

A new Superstar is

born in Bollywood!!!

Mr.Bhatt... Mr.Bhatt...

He doesn't have a great physique...

He is not very tall...

and looks very ordinary

So what makes him

the hottest thing today ?

The answer is in your question

if he had all this,

how would he be different?

Ekta Ma'am...Ekta Ma'am

You are a marketing genius

Will the film benefit

from the brand Lifebuoy...

or the brand benefit from the film?

All I know is that the

industry has benefitted...


A few clays ago,

Nobody knew his name...

Today he is the talk of the town !


Shamitabh rocks!!

Mr.Boney Kapoor... Mr.Boney Kapoor...

While watching the very first

scene of the film, I told my wife...

'this boy is dynamite'

What a voice!

What intensity!

It's getting very late...


This is Shamitabh speaking

I welcome you all

You are searching for me...

I am waiting for you here


(Sound of gargling )

Seems like the mic is

trying to express a problem

Hi! Hello! Greetings and Welcome

Thank you so much

for appreciating LIFEBUOY

An actor is just a medium...

to deliver the director's

thoughts and the writer's words...

to an audience


directors don't hit the gym...

writers are not well groomed...

so the camera doesn't

like them very much

Thank God !

Else, an actor like

me would be jobless

Ladies & Gentlemen

The creator of 'LIFEBUOY'


You had the choice

of casting any big star...

why did you choose a new face ?

Every big star begins as a new face

Sir...Shamitabh sir...

Sir... Sir.. Sir

Shamitabh sir...

You got the news?

What news sir?

Within 3 clays of the

release of my first film...

I have been 'knighted'

by The Queen of England !

What ?

Sir Anthony Hopkins...

Sir Richard Attenborough...

Sir Elton John...

they must be called 'Sir'...

I am miles away from 'Knighthood'

Why are you calling me 'Sir'...


Shamitabh! One question!




You were kept away from

The promotions of this film...


My director and producer feel...

that what you get

for 'free' has no value

Nothing like the pleasure

of paying money to 'see' on screen...

Sir, sir, sir, sir

Mumbai is the capital

of Bollywood & Maharashtra

Why has it taken a

'Maharashtrian' this long...

to be a bollywood superstar ?

Go and ask the film industry...

What took them so long to find me

Go and ask the world...

What took them so

long to hear my voice

Go and ask the dreams...

What took them so long to come true ?

And then...

And then...

So, kids, tell me.

Who is this?

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Ben Kingsley

Who is Gandhiji?

Father of the Nation!!!


What did we achieve because of him?




What is this awwwvvwww?

You think you can escape

Because you can't speak ?

Write the answer on the board

Get up!

No one else must answer

Who was Gandhiji's wife?

No one must answer!

Rohini Hattangadi?

You bunk school... movies all the time...

Because your father is dead...

And you can't speak...

we let you attend school...

so that you can at least

listen and learn !

What will you become

by watching films ?

A Hero ?

What ?

You will become a hero ?

Show us

you've learnt nothing

from your teacher...

show us what you
