October 10, 2012 15:58 IST
Amitabh BachchanAs megastar Amitabh Bachchan turns 70 tomorrow, fans across the world will be able to get closer to him with the aid of a new mobile phone application built as a tribute to the cinema legend.
 
In a tribute to the Bollywood 'Shahenshah', Techzone, which owns exclusive rights for most of Bollywood entertainment content, has developed a new 'BigB' app and a WAP page that promises to quench his fans' desire for Big B related content.
 
The app allows customers to browse and download content by giving access to top 100 high quality songs from Universal
music, filmography (list of his 200-odd movies with release dates and other information) and a quiz on him.
 
This app is supported on Apple devices and in WAP format for other mobile phone users.
 
It is also integrated with the official Big B Twitter pages (@SrBachchan) where fans can view the actor's tweets and get an insight on his life.
 
To be launched tomorrow on his 70th birthday, the app will allow fans to wish him directly.

Techzone director Naveen Bhandari, a huge fan of Big B himself, said, "Looking at the ever increasing love for celebrities, we decided to start building apps specifically dedicated to them and who better to start with than Mr Bachchan?"
