Amitabh Bachchan has just two idols in his life; any guesses who they are?
Amitabh Bachchan has always been an idol to many because of his legendary acting skills and decorated filmography. But his fans always wonder who does Big B idolize? He recently was on a show where he revealed that he has only two idols in life. The actor was speaking on the set of the Sony TV show ‘Superstar Singer’, with Waheeda Rehman and Asha Parekh.
During the course of the show, Bachchan revealed that he considers Dilip Kumar and Waheeda Rehman his two idols in life. He said, “I have two idols in my life, Dilip Kumar ji and Waheeda Rehman. Waheeda Rehman has always been the most beautiful women to me till date. She is not only a great actor but also a great human being by her nature. For me Waheeda ji is a perfect example of the Indian woman. Waheeda ji has given huge and incredible contribution to our Bollywood Industry which cannot be expressed through words (sic).”
Amitabh recalled an incident during his shoot for the first time with Waheeda Rehman in the movie ‘Reshma Aur Shera’. He said that there was a sequence where Sunil Dutt and Waheeda ji had to sit bare feet in the desert, where it was impossible to stand in the sand with our shoes, because of the high temperature. He was so worried about how Waheeda ji would do it. So, as soon as the director announced a break, without wasting time, he took Waheeda ji’s juttis and ran towards her. He said, “I can’t even express how special the moment is to me.” Amitabh Bcahchan has worked with Waheeda Rehman in movies like ‘Trishul’, ‘Adalat’, and ‘Namak Halaal’.
He said that she has worked with three members of the Bachchan family and has played the role of mother with all three of them. In ‘Phagun’ (1973), to Jaya Bachchan, to Abhishek ‘Om Jai Jagadish’ (2002), and himself in ‘Trishul’ (1978). To which she laughed and replied, “It feels happy and ajeeb (weird) at the same time. If it continues this way, perhaps I will play mother or grandmother to Abhishek’s kids someday!”
