‘Astra’ first look unveiled on Big B’s 74th birthday

Disney Channel and Graphic India on Tuesday — Amitabh Bachchan’s 74th birthday — released the first look of upcoming superhero series “Astra Force”, which features the megastar as an animated mythical hero, Astra the Immortal.

The first look tells the story behind Astra and how he meets the two eight-year-old twins, Neal and Tara as they combine forces to save the universe from a new wave of giant monsters and super villains determined to rule the galaxy.

Amitabh has also lent his voice to the series, which has earlier been described as a funny and fast paced, action-adventure entertainer.

The “Pink” star, who was born on October 11, 1942, has been a pivotal part of the Indian entertainment industry for over four decades.

Big B, who married actress Jaya Bhaduri, has two children — daughter Shweta and son Abhishek, and three grandchildren — Navya Naveli, Agastya and Aaradhya.
