||ADITYA CHOPRA AND AMITABH BACHCHAN
After turning 50 (1993), Mr. Bachchan announced his short retirement from the arch lights.. Mukul S. Anand's KHUDA GAWAH was touted to be his last, and a grand premiere in Mumbai saw the entire industry coming to watch Mr. Bachchan on screen.. without knowing when will the icon's deep baritone voice will announce his comeback to silver screen.
After four years in 1997 Mr. Bachchan made his comeback in MRITYUDAATA, helmed by his favourite Manmohan Desai… but alas.. the movie turned out to be a dud and Mr. Bachchan's next innings post KHUDA GAWAH came under scanner for all reasons.. one dud was followed by another till KBC happened.. the show proved that Big B's popularity is unmatched. But prospects of a big screen comeback seemed gloomy for Mr. Bachchan.
It is learnt that one day Mr. Bachchan called his friend Yash Chopra.. the conversation took an interesting turn when Yashji asked Mr. Bachchan.. what is happening and Mr. Bachchan humbly said that he is searching for work.. Aditya was planning MOHABBATEIN and most of the things where decided.. overwhelmed by Mr. Bachchan's approach and humbleness (being a phenomenon and still politely asking for work).. Yashji met Mr. Bachchan and MOHABBATEIN was offered to him.
Interestingly, the character Narayan Shankar played by Mr. Bachchan in the film got revived to match his persona..
KBC was spreading like an epidemic when MOHABBATEIN was released and the movie turned out to be a success triggering Big B return to silver screen as well.
Big B has confirmed his next with Aditya Chopra.. though other details are not available.. but what is overwhelming about this forthcoming association is the inspiring story on how it got started.. it's a lesson on professionalism and humbleness for all actors. Big B was not at all ashamed in asking work from his dear friend Yash ji who gave him multiple shades in cult movies like DEEWAR, TRISHUL, KABHIE KABHIE etc..
The movie industry is blamed for having king size egos.. but this episode starring Big B sets a new example on how to be humble and a true professional.
