Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in an interesting cameo in Shah Rukh Khan's home-production PAHELI. According to a report in a section of the press, the super-star not only acceded to accommodate the role in his busier than ever schedule, but graciously declined to accept the remuneration of Rs 1 crore that SRK offered to him. The report quoting Bachchan said that SRK gave him an envelope and flowers after the shoot. He assumed it was a thank you note but found that it was a cheque. Moreover, he also noticed that SRK had hastily given him an unsigned cheque. He returned the cheque with a letter saying that he had done the film for emotional reasons and emotions could not be evaluated. In addition, he also offered a word of elderly advice that one should never make the mistake of issuing an unsigned cheque.
The magnanimous gesture must surely have captivated SRK's heart, who has always been in the good books of Bachchan. It has also proved that he is not as business minded as he is made out to be, with the many products that he is endorsing these days.
