While Ajooba is one of the big flops of Amitabh Bachchan's career, film buffs remember it for a variety of reasons. From an outlandish plot to some funny sequences, the film was quite a funny ride. Amitabh Bachchan has shared a picture from the movie as it completed 30 years. He wrote a caption about how the years just passed by, where he lost some friends, and was left with only memories. We can understand that he is missing Rishi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor. While the former played the role of Haassan in the movie, Shashi Kapoor was the producer. The movie had bombed in the domestic box office, but was a success in the Soviet Union.
After Big B's tweet, someone shared a picture of a bewildered Ranbir Kapoor and his sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni from the sets of Ajooba. We can see Shashi Kapoor in the picture as well. He was the grandfather of Ranbir Kapoor. He was the co-director of Ajooba along with Gennadi Vasilyev. Ranbir and Riddhima were much adored by Shashi Kapoor. When he received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2014, Ranbir Kapoor had said, "We often forget what the yesteryear actors and filmmakers have done and it just warms my heart to see his contribution… When I was giving the voiceover and watching the video, I realised the value of Shashi. He did commercial films, independent films and international films. He encouraged the theatre culture in India."
Amitabh Bachchan is known to reminisce his past films on social media. He shared a still from Chupke Chupke and wrote how that house is now his residence, Jalsa. He wrote, "Chupke Chupke “ our film by Hrishikesh MUKERJI.. closing today at 46 years ..!! This house you see in the picture is Producer NC Sippy’s house .. we bought it , then sold it , then bought it back again .. rebuilt it .. this is our home now JALSA !! Many films were shot here ..
