He played the famous singer in Abhimaan where his ego gets severely bruised when his wife, on his insistence takes up singing and gains even more popularity. The film, directed by Hrishikesh Mukerjee, has a reason why it continues to be special in Amitabh Bachchan’s life since he started the film along with his real life wife Jaya just days after their wedding.
On the occasion of the 44 years post the release of Abhimaan, Amitabh Bachchan took to his blog to express nostalgia and amidst recalling these days, he also made an interesting revelation about the film. Talking about the brilliance that the film Abhimaan is, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “And we have 44 years of the film that brought Jaya and me together for a most memorable creative in our respective careers .. the excellence of Hrishi da, the music of SD Burman, the master and the support of some of the most brilliant talent in its writing ..”
Further, Amitabh went on to describe the name of his first production in his blog where he added, “AMIYA .. the production name was our production .. AMI from Amitabh and YA from Jaya .. and our respective secretaries were looking after the nitty gritties while we worked .. BUT .. as is with most such productions, things went out of hand and we ended up with nothing .. the rights all still belong to ‘dunno who’ .. perhaps one of the secretaries ..” We wonder if he is thinking of a remake but there have been no talks on the same.
Currently, Amitabh Bachchan, who was last seen in Sarkar 3, is busy with 102 Not Out where he is collaborating with Rishi Kapoor. The film, directed by Umesh Shukla, is an adaptation of a Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi.
