The original Bollywood Superstar and his successor

Bandra’s charming lanes keep throwing up surprises in the form of old world bungalows which seem to have withstood the vagaries of time (with the help of responsible families living within them of course). As part of the Bollywood Art Project, celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema, there are many such murals adorning the otherwise drab walls of many a houses in Bandra.

While entering Bandstand from the HK Bhabha road (im not really sure of the name) you come across these two murals depicting the original Superstar Rajesh Khanna on one side of the wall and his successor Amitabh Bachchan on the other side.

The project was started by an artist named Ranjit Dahiya last year and there is a third mural as well on Chapel road, which i will hunt down when i head to Bandra the next time:)

Take Care,
