It was a night to remember as Shemaroo Entertainment Limited launched its unique show AUR EK KAHANI to celebrate Bollywood’s golden era with iconic Bollywood legends from the classic era occupying the stage.
The stage was brimming with profound nostalgic memories of the stories behind Bollywood evergreen classics haunting one after the another as the stage got occupied with living legends like Nimmi (BARSAAT, AAN, BASANT BAHAR, etc), Kamini Kaushal (last scene in KABIR SINGH), Biswajit Chatterjee ( BEES SAAL BAAD, KISMET), Bindu (popular vamp of the golden era), Moushumi Chatterjee, Prem Chopra, Jeetendra, Jaya Prada, Subash Ghai, Poonam Dhillon, Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Anandji ( from the Kalyan Ji Anandji duo), Pyarelalji (from the Laxmikanth Pyarelal duo), Satish Kaushik and last but not the least the iconic radio announcer Ameen Sayani. All the legends shared the stage with ace trade analyst Komal Nahata last night.
To revisit the golden era again and celebrate the magic of Hindi cinema, ShemarooMe today announced the launch of their chat show – ’KomalNahta… AurEkKahani’ at the event. The format of the show is designed and presented by ShemarooMe, the show will bring the living legends under one roof and reminiscence about the power Bollywood classics still hold in today’s day and age of cinema. The show will be available on ShemarooMe and DTH platforms.
The evening saw the legends from the evergreen era and attracting everybody’s attention with their entertaining, funny and emotional responses during an engaging on-stage chat.
For example, Jeetendra sarcastically admitting that he is slowly forgetting that he is an actor as he is not faced the camera for some years now. Shabana Azmi interestingly highlighting the fact that the renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar is not so poetic and romantic in personal life.
Commenting on the occasion, Hiren Gada, CEO, Shemaroo Entertainment said, “Bollywood classic cinema has always been the strength of Shemaroo, and the chat show is an innovation to connect with audiences across all age groups”

Seems to be a must for those who are fond of stories behind all the Bollywood glories from the classic era and why not.
The impact can be summed with just two words – bheno or bhaiyo’… yes you guessed it right..when the 85-year-old iconic radio announcer Ameen Sayani took the mike and greeted the gathering with his trademark lines, the hall clapped in profound joy. Ameen Sayani may take support to take the stage but when he holds the mike the voice still rules and will rule forever.
Similarly, the living legends of Bollywood needed some support to make their voices, memories, and experience shared with all and when they will take the mike it will be a moment of immense nostalgic joy akin to Ameen Sayani’s immortal intro on the radio.
