World-renowned Indian celebrity Amitabh Bachchan will visit Qatar later this month as part of the launch of a jewelry chain here.
Bachchan, known as the “godfather of Indian cinema,” is a brand ambassador of Kalyan Jewellers, a Kerala-based chain.
The company is inaugurating seven stores across the country on March 25, including in Al Gharafa, Al Rayyan, Asian Village, Abu Hamour, Barwa Village and Al Khor.
Speaking to Doha News, a representative of the jeweler said that the schedule for Bachchan’s visit is still being worked out, and should be released at the end of this week.
The 73-year-old actor will be in Dubai the week prior to his Doha appearance for the 2016 Times of India Film Awards.
Those are being held on March 18 and will also feature performances from Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and others.
