Harivansh Rai Bachchan was a celebrated poet of the Nayi Kavita movement. Very little of his work has made its way to Bollywood. Most notably, the Holi song Rang Barse from Amitabh Bachchan's Silsila contains lyrics by the poet. Harivansh Rai Bachchan died in 2003 at the age of 95.
Amitabh Bachchan has wrapped the Malta schedule of his new film Thugs Of Hindostan and has not begun work on the next schedule yet. Thugs Of Hindostan also stars Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif. It releases sometime next year.
