Incredible!!.. if this could have happened then it would have been the casting coup of the century.. megastar Amitabh Bachchan almost did a film with the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali..


The death of the ‘greatest' boxer - Muhammad Ali last Friday stunned the world. Bollywood took to social media to mourn the loss of Muhammad Ali and Bachchan junior was the early one to react on his social media handle by saying, “Rest in peace legend @MuhammadAli #FloatLikeAButterfly #StingLikeABee #GOAT”.  Later in the day during the promotions of his forthcoming TE3N, PAA -  Amitabh Bachchan shared a mother of all trivia about him and Ali that made everybody flabbergasted.

Mr Bachchan said that he met the icon at his residence and they were in talks to make a film.. He was quoted saying, “I went to his home in 1979, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. He was simple, smiling and down to earth. The world knows of his achievements. Prakash Mehraji wanted to make a film with us and we had gone to his home to talk about it. That film didn't happen but those moments that I spent with him were extremely memorable. I believe that he was the greatest and will always remain the greatest. His life, the obstacles he had to face, he not only fought in the ring, but outside as well.”.

Awed by Ali's fighting spirit, Mr. Bachchan was in full praise for the legendary achievements and paying his heartfelt condolence, the megastar concluded, “He kept fighting all his life and in the end he emerged victorious. His life was unique. When he faced racial discrimination, he threw his gold medal in the river. He has written about it in his book. It's so inspirational. He wasn't just a sportsman. He motivated so many with his thoughts and even today the depth of his thinking inspires us. He was just 74. I am extremely saddened by his loss. 'Unki aatma ko shanti miley'."
