Neetu Kapoor had once revealed how Bollywood’s Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan came to her rescue in a very tough time. It was when Neetu Kapoor was newly engaged to Rishi Kapoor and was filming for the movie Yaarana with Big B. The movie was quite famous for it’s song Sara Zamana Haseeno Ka Deewana because Amitabh Bachchan was seen wearing a bulb-studded black leather jacket. The song was shot in Kolkata but Neetu is only seen through half of the song and later goes mia. It is because the Piku star helped her get back to her fiance Rishi Kapoor in Mumbai as they were missing each other mid-shoot.

Neetu Kapoor said in an interview with Rediff earlier, “I remember we were in Calcutta shooting for that stage song in a stadium (Yaarana). We were sitting together, and I was crying, tears rolling down my cheeks. I had just got engaged and I didn’t want to be away from Chintu (Rishi Kapoor). The phones in Calcutta weren’t working. And Chintu was upset that he couldn’t get through to me. Amit asked me why I was crying. I said, ‘I want to go back.’ He replied, ‘You will.’”

She further added, “He called the producer, asked him to book my ticket back to Bombay, and said they’d manage the song without me. They did. You will notice I am there for half the song and then I disappear.”
