Big B hooked on to `Homeland`
New Delhi: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan who is recovering at home following two abdominal surgeries enjoys watching television shows, especially ‘Homeland’. But with the show coming to an end, he is confused about what to do next.
Created by Gideon Raff, ‘Homeland’ stars Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Morena Baccarin in the lead roles. The series won the 2011 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series Drama.
"Finished the episodes I had of `HomeLand` and irritated that there is no more to see... it is infectious and so gripping. Need to find some more stuff, will trouble Abhishek (Bachchan) for some or then see some of the more celebrated films but got to see.
"(`HomeLand`) has been such an absorbing watch. Not since ‘24’ have I been struck by something so involving and gripping. One longs now for the next lot of the season to come in," the 69-year-old posted on his blog.
The thriller series is about a man who returns to the US after going missing in Iraq for eight years.
"The level of production, performances and the creativity behind each episode is simply remarkable. The oft repeated assessment, that television has gradually brought in more economics has been proved beyond doubt," Bachchan posted.
