You’ll fall short of words if you try to describe Amitabh Bachchan. There are countless admirers out there who grew up watching his movies. Be it his dialogues, fight scenes or songs, everything has left a lasting impact on his admirers. Big B is loved wherever he goes and recently we stumbled upon an old interview of the megastar where he relived memories of his visit to a country where he was provided with half of the country’s Air Force, just for his security. In fact, such was the magnitude of his security, that he felt that the sets were almost a battlefield. This location was Afghanistan where the megastar had shot for his cult movie ‘Khuda Gawah’ (1992).

The then President of Afghanistan, late Najibullah Ahmadzai was a huge fan of the megastar and Hindi cinema. As Big B was arriving to shoot, Najibullah had ensured maximum security for him and the crew in the country. Amitabh Bachchan had mentioned about it in an old interview given to PTI where he recalled the time when he was shooting for this film in the country. He said, “When we were discussing the script of ‘Khuda Gawah’, I said let us go to Afghanistan to shoot. We went to Mazar-e-Sharif to shoot the traditional Afghan sport of Buzkashi.” (Also Read:When Amitabh Bachchan continued shooting, even after getting injured)


“The president provided us excellent security when the shooting was on. Fighter planes were keeping vigil in the sky and Army tanks were at the side of the sets. It just felt like battlefield,” added the megastar.

Indeed, we should say that this incident truly shows why Big B can be called a phenomenon in himself.
