Alpha Amitabh

The Colbert Report continues its Bollywood affection for Amitabh Bachchan, by naming him the Alpha Dog of the Week! Although the turban Stephen dons isn't correct...

I heart Stephen Colbert.

Wait a second what? When was this broadcast? Or was it broadcast at all?
Damn. Someone got to a colbert amitabh clip before I did.

Anangbhai, it was on Monday night the 12th. Fortunately Comedy Central had it in clip form already! BTW, where's the clip you promised from SNL?!

Blue said...

So how many days before Colbert begins to cover Ash/Abhishek? Surely someone on that staff is aware of the Bachchan/Bachchan connection.

I almost wonder if he's leading up to an interview with AB on the show -- but AB's probably pretty busy right now, watching Ash marry trees and things. (Colbert could have a field day with that one...)

anangbhai said...

That was like a 4 second clip. Seriously. They just made fun of the abishekwarya name or something.
And I'm lazy.

Doubtful, Ash/AB2.0 is too easy. Even the Indian press is kind of sick of it.

However. I would like to champion a campaign to write in to the Colbert show, in defense of SRK for this one. He should examine Paheli and the ginormous headgear SRK sports in that film. He may in fact, topple Bachchan as alpha-dog, if Colbert is effectively informed.

Who's with me!?

Beth said...

Oh I am TOTALLY with you. Plus he needs to review more dance footage - we all know who the better dancer is.

Susania said...

Ah, but the issue is not that he was wearing a big-ass turban, but that he survived a major kick to the head by a camel! Now, find some old major shooting accident that should have killed SRK, and you've got some ammunition!

Armando said...

if you combine the turban story with Amitabh's miraculous return from the dead after his accident on the set of COOLIE, he becomes even more difficult to unseat, even for Shahrukh.

DesiDancer said...

yes yes, but the saafa in Paheli is sure to withstand a nuclear assault. It's just that SRK hasn't been challenged by it yet. or camel kicks.

There were lots of camels in Paheli as well, so how come none of them even TRIED to kick SRK? The turban of course!
