Ever since the news broke out that Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will be seen working togther, fans and media just couldn’t keep calm as it’s the very first time AB senior and Aamir Khan will be sharing screen space in THUGS OF HINDOSTAN.
Although it was indeed a delight to see both of them battling it out against each other in the trailer of the film as the film is set to hit the theaters in two days we can’t hold our excitement.
In conversation with Aamir as he candidly opens up on working with Amitabh Bachchan and also shareshow nervous was he while shooting with him.
Aamir revealed how nervous he was for working with Big B for the first time ever. He had mixed emotions of nervousness and excitement. But Amitabh Bachchan himself made it easier for him by his majestic and calm aura.
He said, “It was amazing working with him. I didn’t know how to break the ice as the very first scene that we shot is in the trailer itself, Bachchan sir didn’t even know that our first shot was done he made me so comfortable and at ease that I felt the warmth working with him.I was very nervous for the first shot, but it went alright so then I got comfortable with him. Amit Ji is very warm and generous person. He makes you comfortable. He’s very easy to work with. He has got a very dry sense of humour, you can’t tell whether he’s joking or he’s serious. So it’s confusing whether I should laugh or not.”
When asked about does he feels intimidated by his personality, he says, “He’s too well behaved and warm to feel intimidate anyone.” Well, that’s a nice statement coming from one superstar for the other!
Well did you know who complimented Aamir Khan it’s none other than Amitabh Bachchan as he was so impressed by his performance in THUGS that he thinks this is the best performance of Aamir’s life. He called up Aamir and said, “You’ve really caught that accent so well, I’m from that area so I can tell you. You’ve pitched the film perfectly. I feel like seeing the film multiple times just to see your scenes, which are my favourite.”
“So I was really thrilled and felt warm that he loved my performance so much”, Aamir said.
Speaking of memories, Aamir has quite bizarre memories with Mr. Bachchan that he shared with the supertsar himself.
Aamir reminisces, “There were few magazines which had come, in which they had put passport size photos of lot of people who wanted to act. So me, my siblings and our two maids, we were laughing at those photos, we were very young. And one of the photo was of Mr. Bachchan. Then we realized when soon enough he became an actor and people became his huge fan. I told my sister, ‘you remember we used to laugh’. And I narrated Mr Bachchan this embarrassing story, apart from this I’ve lot of other memories of me being his fan and watching his movies. I remember watching the film, I specifically loved him in NAMAK HALAL. I came out of the theatre and booked a ticket for the next show and later I went on to discussing my favourite scenes of his with him.”
With so much candid talks we can just can’t wait for Thrusday!
