Amitabh becomes a Pak icon

Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan continued to dominate the streets of Karachi despite the city government's orders for removal of billboards showing him in front of a Pakistani flag, as new hoardings came up with the star's image against a green background.

Telefun is using Bachchan's image as part of their efforts to promote their call-in programmes and quizzes. However, authorities here took objection to posters showing Bachchan in front of a Pakistani flag and ordered their removal.

More than 2,500 billboards and banners of all sizes are installed at all the major roads of the city to promote Telefun's new show that would be launched on August 14 - Pakistan's Independence Day.
