On Wednesday evening, Abhishek Bachchan after attending Dilip Kumar’s funeral with his father Amitabh Bachchan penned a note on social media about how he was supposed to be sharing screen space with Dilip Kumar for his debut film. “My first film was to be "Aakhri Mughal". Dilip Sahab was to play my father in the film, I clearly remember my father telling me that it took him over a decade to have the honour of sharing screen space with his idol & here I was given that opportunity in my debut film. He told me to cherish this opportunity and to learn and observe as much as I could by watching the master at work. A film in which I get to work with my idol's idol!! How lucky was I?”

“Sadly the film never got made & I never had the honour of being able to say that I've been in a film with the great Dilip Kumar Ji. Today, an entire era of cinema came to an end. Thankfully many generations will be able to watch and learn but most importantly enjoy and respect the immense talent of Dilip Sahab through his movies. We thank you for blessing us with your work, wisdom, talent & love,” he added.
