Amitabh Bachchan remembers Sridevi and Irrfan Khan in an emotional post
Amitabh Bachchan took a trip down the memory lane yesterday as he remembered two of the best actors Bollywood ever had- Sridevi and Irrfan Khan. Big B has worked with them in ‘Khuda Gawah’ and ‘Piku‘ and both these films had a release date of May 8. Big B shared an emotional post as he remembered his late co-stars.
Bachchan took to his Instagram handle to share stills from his movies ‘Khuda Gawah’ that starred Sridevi and ‘Piku’ that starred Irrfan Khan. His caption read, “28 years of KHUDA GAWAH .. 5 years of PIKU .. today 8th May .. and in remembrance of the two that have left us 🌹(sic)”
The veteran actor further elaborated on his blog as he wrote, “28 years of Khuda Gawah .. 5 years of Piku .. vivid as ever .. alive in memory .. lost in the remembrance of the two from there .. exceptional in presence and talent .. and leaving at such short presence ..” He hinted that Sridevi and Irrfan both died too early. He continued, “But a third too from Khuda Gawah .. the director Mukul S Anand .. left too early .. the magic of his vision .. his eyes were magical camera lenses .. even after this large interval the frames he did were extraordinary.”
“Khuda Gawah .. the shooting in Afghanistan .. a book shall be required to describe that detail .. hopefully some day .. .. and Piku .. each day spent in the delight of inventing, ad libbing .. making that which has not been written or described , but felt .. doing that which even during the early working days at Calcutta were never done .. cycling the streets …. Khuda Gawah .. the incredible Afghan hospitality .. the immense love from all .. the care and the bonds of friendships .. the stories of the visit bringing emotional quotients .. .. would need days to put all this together .. some day perhaps ..” he added.
Sridevi passed away in 2018 while Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29 this year.
