And this was Salamn after success of Saajan, Aamir after Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar .. And Shree Devi After Khuda Gawah !!
The picture dates back to the time when Amitabh Bachchan resumed work on the sets of Coolie after the life threatening accident and Amjad Khan had come to visit the actor on the sets.
On July 26, 1982, Amitabh Bachchan and actor Puneet Issar were shooting a fight sequence for Manmohan Desai’s Coolie in Bangalore, when a mistimed punch-and-jump left Big B with a ruptured spleen. He was airlifted to Mumbai where his Deewar director Yash Chopra had an ambulance waiting. Despite an emergency operation, Big B spent weeks in coma in Breach Candy Hospital. Fans thronged temples offering to sacrifice their won limbs in exchange for Mr Bachchan’s recovery. His wife, Jaya Bachchan, walked barefoot to Siddhivinayak Temple every day to pray. Among Big B’s visitors at the hospital was Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
On August 2, 1982, doctors injected adrenaline into Amitabh Bachchan’s heart in a last-ditch attempt to revive him. Jaya Bachchan saw his big toe move and exclaimed, “Look, he’s alive.”
Amitabh Bachchan then went on to make a full recovery and completed shooting Coolie. Director Manmohan Desai altered the ending of the film, keeping Big B’s character alive rather than having him die as was originally scripted. He said it would have been inappropriate for the man who had cheated death for real not to do so on-screen

Satya Vachan from GOD himself.
Pran Saheb is decorated with the Dada Saheb Phalke Award, the highest honor to an artist by the State. I have been interacting with him regularly. he has been keeping unwell and was in Hospital, for some time. I had visited him on both occasions, and he seemed to be improving and doing well. He is, by God’s grace, home now and among his family. I sent him some flowers and a note, which was read out to him. A picture was taken by his family and sent to me :
A gentleman to the core, who had great respect for his colleagues, and an immense attitude to professional behaviour. Never late on the sets, despite the heavy make up that he invariably had to indulge in. Never ever interfered with the work in progress, and surprisingly there were many occasions when he never saw the films he worked in. Many a time he would call or speak to me about a film that we had done together, months and years later after its release !! On outdoors he would often join in after work for dinner and an after session of poetry and ‘shayari’, something that he excelled in. His memory of several ‘shers’ was quite amazing !
There were moments when he would insist on suggesting a film for me to do, and invariably they were successes. His commitment to his work, his ability to keep changing the look and nature of the characters he played in each film was simply astonishing.
Classsssssssssssssssssss …. Show was 80% full at IMAX Inorbit Mall, Hyderabad. Last Friday it was cancelled due to No audience and today almost full
And I can clearly see Audience enjoying every moment of movie .. much more than new CB(Which I saw last week in replacement of cancelled show of old CB) .. And mostly were youngsters. There is not even 1% of doubt that CB(1981) has timeless entertainment value which can mesmerize even today’s youngsters. This was priceless experience to watch such a classic comedy on big screen with crowd and pleasant to see every one enjoying. Simple characters, seeing Old Delhi Charm(when it was not much crowded), very well written and executed scenes, natural act .. movie still not lost its relevance.

The legendary figure in Indian cinema, megastar Amitabh Bachchan who has enthralled millions of audiences for years with his onscreen charisma, is going to have a special honour from Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming movie Bombay Talkies. A special song, titled ‘Bachchan anthem’ has been added in the movie as a tribute to Big B, to acknowledge his extraordinary contribution to Indian cinema.
A source in association with the movie explained, “Amitabh Bachchan is an icon in the film industry and has given blockbuster memorable films as his body of work. The song will have a lot of kids, dressed in different avatars donned by Big B over the years in his movies.” The lyrics of the song are as following, “Sitaaron ki shaan hai jo, vo Bachchan, cinema ka imaan hai jo, vo bachchan, reelon se dilon tak, aya re aya re… chhaaya re, bachcha bachcha gaaye, from bachpan bachpan.”
The song, composed by Amit Trivedi, will feature a group of children dancing with a backdrop full of Amitabh Bachchan’s favourite stills from different blockbusters. Remo D`Souza has choreographed the video. Bombay Talkies is a collection of four short stories, directed by eminent directors like Kashyap, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee. The film which has been made in commemoration of 100 years of Indian cinema will hit the theatres on May 3.
