Well my really enjoying my freedom of my own boss. Yesterday i attended the Dubai International Film Festival, morning I attended the press conference of Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, one of the most successful Indian Cinema Actor. First time ever I saw him and it was a great honor to meet this iconic film star of India. He is very famous in other parts of the world as well.
