“Working with Yash ji was always a picnic”,Amitabh Bachchan gets nostalgic about working with late filmmaker Yash Chopra

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has worked with several filmmakers in his ginormous career. One of the filmmakers he had a blast working with was the late filmmaker Yash Chopra.

Everyday, Amitabh Bachchan talks about his life, daily inspirations and shares memories on his blog. In his latest blog post, he remembers working with Yash Chopra and how fun it was shooting for Kala Patthar. Throwing it back to 1979, Amitabh Bachchan said that working with Yash Chopra was like a picnic. It was full of humour, fun and delicious food.

Reminiscing about the shooting days, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, "Working with Yash ji was always a picnic .. informal, relaxed and filled with humour and eating delicious food .. he encouraged the families of artists to accompany them at the shoot destination .. whether it was Pune or Kashmir or Amsterdam or Delhi it was always the same .. evenings were spent not in our respective Hotel rooms, but at a common place where we chatted, played games and enjoyed each others’ company .. ‘ antakshari’ was the favourite .. along with ‘dumb charades’  .. haha ..  what wonderful moments shared .. !!

Shootings in Kashmir and Srinagar was a delight .. after pack up, we would all migrate to the Dal Lake, where several ‘donga’s’ - boat platforms - would be tied together to make one floating large boat and all of us would spend the evening, moving about in the lake, eating singing ..  music by local folk musicians, until the late hours..

Now all forgotten .. and in memories .. sad .. !!

Time waits for no one .. and neither must we .."

Yash Chopra and Amitabh Bachchan had worked in several movies that went on to become blockbusters including Silsila (1981), Kaala Patthar (1979), Trishul (1978), Kabhi Kabhie (1976), Deewaar (1975) among others.
