Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor partnered each other in many hit films in the ’70s and ’80s, including Deewar, Kabhi Kabhie, Shaan and Namak Halaal. They have remained friends with Shashi Kapoor making a rare public appearance at Big B’s 70th birthday party in October last year.well Big B shared a funny anecdote from his illustrious and long career on his social network .The latest being about old friend and collaborator Shashi Kapoor who was directing Amitabh Bachchan in 1991 film Ajooba in the Russian town of Yalta, Ukraine.
Big B posted a picture from the shoot with this story: “One confirmation that the picture is taken in Yalta, USSR then, now in Ukraine, is the missing stick in the hand of Shashi Kapoor ! In Mumbai when we started shooting he would move around with a stick on set, gathering his troops and bringing them to order, and generously using it if indiscipline occurred !! He lost the stick in Russia !! Thank God !!”
Well truly a funny story as we fell over ourselves laughing.
