Superstar, Amitabh BACHCHAN is expected to lead a delegation of Indian talent to Morocco in December, when the International Film Festival of Marrakech (30 Nov — 8 Dec) will hold a major tribute to Hindi cinema.
"After displaying the eclecticism and richness of Indian cinema in the last years, it was only natural that this edition of the festival should be devoted to Hindi cinema, to celebrate [Indian cinema's] centenary," said the festival in a statement.
The delegation is expected to include actors, producers and directors and to be feted in the Jemaa el Fna Square on 1 Dec where a selection of Hindi films will be played outdoors.
