The actor which Amitabh Bachchan admires the most is Dilip Kumar. Like Shahrukh Khan, who played few roles immortalized by Amitabh Bachchan, Amitabh too enacted some roles immortalized by his ideal Dilip Kumar.
Amitabh’s GANGA KI SAUGANDH (1978) was a rework of Dilip Kumar’s super hit movie GANGA JAMUNA. Amitabh played the role of a village bumpkin who turns dacoits. The movie was a hit. Likewise Amitabh Bachchan too played the triple role in the movie MAHAAN, which Dilip Kumar experimented in BAIRAAG. Amitabh Bachchan’s obsession for the doll in MUQADDAR KA SIKANDAR was lifted from Dilip Kumar’s role in AADMI. Interestingly the duo worked together in Ramesh Sippy’s SHAKTI.
