Amitabh Bachchan has always been quite active on social media. He keeps his fans updated about his life through social media. He recently shared a ‘then and now’ pic. While one pic is a throwback pic, the other is a recent one. His caption read, “Srinagar, Kashmir .. ‘KABHI KABHIE’ .. writing the verse for the song ‘kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayaal aata hai ..’ AND .. Lucknow, month of May .. 44 years later ( 1976 to 2020 ) Gulabo Sitabo .. and song playing .. ‘ban ke madaari ka bandar.. ‘
क्या थे , और क्या बना दिया अब !!!”
A few days ago, Big B wrote about his film, Don on twitter. "When Chandra and Salim-Javed announced the name of the film as Don, no distributor was willing to accept the title. They all thought it to be named after the Dawn underwear, a popular brand during those times. The film 'Godfather' was just making a mark in film circles. The word Don was unknown till then," Bachchan wrote.
Amitabh said the producer of Don, Nariman Irani, who had also shot the film, tragically died in a freak accident much before the film was released. Said the actor, "While he was shooting for a film Nariman Bawa suddenly noticed, that the set where they were working was about to crumble and fall. A young child was playing around it. Nariman, fearing the kid would get crushed, ran and jumped on the kid and saved him but in doing so he injured himself, as he fell.”
"He never came out of the complications that arose after that. It was such a sad moment. God's own man, simple, uncomplicated, soft spoken and a master in his craft .. just could not live to see the end of the film 'Don,'" he added.
Bachchan said one of the dance moves in the popular "Khaike Paan" song which was added on actor Manoj Kumar's suggestion was based on his son, Abhishek.
"There is a dance move in the song where the steps are me moving sideways, that's a copy of Abhishek. As a little fellow, whenever he heard music, he would dance and do this side step..I copied that from him for the song.
