Well I don’t know how many of you are aware of these facts or let me say the Other side of Amitabh Bachchan.

zanjeer Amitabh Bachchan had given 12 consecutive flops before Zanjeer.

Sunil Dutt signed him for a mute’s role in Reshma Aur Shera because of a letter of introduction from then PM Indira Gandhi to friend Nargis.

Kalyanji-Anandji helped him in his struggling days and even introduced him to Prakash Mehra

Comedian Mehmood was also a mentor to Mr Bachchan in his days of struggle and offered him place to stay in his own home.

Kader Khan – Former Mentor and dialogue writer of many films starring Amitabh Wr1a5FZk5hE Bachchan lashes out at Amitabh Bachchan in an interview. “Kader Khan told that Amitabh Bachchan discouraged him to join politics, while he himself became M.P. He said that Amitabh told me, ‘if people will approach you for politics, then I would tell them that you are not the right person, I would discourage them to vote for you, I will ensure that you don’t win’. Kader Khan, who wrote dialogues for Amitabh’s hit films like Satte Pe Satta, Naseeb, Muqadder Ka Sikander, says that Amitabh was ruined by politics. Kader Khan further added ‘My relationship with Amitabh got ruined after he became MP. I was not happy, because politics changes people. When he came back, he was not my Amitabh. It was very sad’.

Jaya is often heard saying, “Amitji is a loner!” – (Until Aishwarya entered his life I believe)

When he was out of work at the turn of the millennium, he called and asked Yash Chopra for a project. Mohabattein happened.

Several Actresses rejected to be casted against a “Flop Actor” in Zanjeer until Jaya Badhuri signed.

Amar Singh – Friend turned Foe calls Amitabh Bachchan “Greedy”. He once told media that had he not helped Amitabh he would have become bankrupt & says Amitabh don’t have courage to say this to him. He also said, he helped him but life taught him a lesson that, “help needy not the greedy”.
Amitabh Bachchan was accused in Bofors Scam, Crime against Humanity for the 1984 riots, 500Cr Money laundering and land scams.

In an Interview to a film magazine dated 1989, Parveen #Babi said “Amitabh Bachchan is a super international gangster. He is after my life. His goons kidnapped me and I was kept on an Island where they performed a surgery on me and planted one transmitter/chip/electronic bug right under my ear.” There was a photograph of Babi showing a scar below her ears.

Amitabh Bachchan had extra marital affair with #Rekha (bbc exposed it during one of its interviews with Yash Chopra), an affair with Zeenat Aman, Jaya Prada and Parveen babi. About Yash Chopra’s khulasa, I’l put the excerpts of the interview below;

The BBC Asian Network managed to a pull a coup of sorts when it aired an interview with legendry filmmaker Yash Chopra who confirmed one of the most infamous affairs in Bollywood.

In the interview on Sonia Deol’s show on Wednesday 11th August (listen to clip below), Yash Chopra spoke openly about the Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha affair in the late 70s / early 80s. It’s the first time since the affair that a person of Yash Chopra’s stature has spoken so candidly about it.

He said the affair was definitely going on before he started work on ‘Silsila’, which coincidentally mirrored what was happening in real life. Yash said, “I was always on tenterhooks and scared (during Silsila) because it was real life coming into reel life. Jaya is his wife and Rekha is his girlfriend – the same story is going on (in real life). Anything could have happened because they are working together.”

Yash said that ‘Silsila’ was not inspired by the infamous affair; even though the movie was released post the controversy. He further added that he was only able to complete the film (despite the rising tensions) because he had good relations with the cast. “I cast them because they are great actresses, not because of what was going on. I felt lucky to get them.”

Even now, the #Bachchan clan is remaining tight-lipped about what really happened, so no doubt this public revelation on the BBC Asian Network will cause embarrassment to the family.

Yash said, “When a man and woman are doing romantic scenes it’s not possible they won’t get in a relationship – in the past it wasn’t so open, but today it is. No one cared in the past.”

silsila poster Britain’s popular Asian weekly, Eastern Eye has also covered this story. Earlier this week, showbiz editor, Asjad Nazir tweeted that the filmmaker and the BBC Asian Network had betrayed Amitabh Bachchan for exposing the affair.

Some suggested that Amitabh had met in an angry exchange with the BBC Asian Network for broadcasting the interview, however the station denied this. It said, “Following the interview with Yash Chopra on the BBC Asian Network’s Sonia Deol Show on Wednesday 11 August, we have had no contact or correspondence from Amitabh Bachchan’s representatives.”

However, host Sonia Deol expressed her surprise at Yash’s revelation, “It’s a rumour we have grown up with, but no one has ever confirmed it,” Sonia told Eastern Eye.

    Every one knows that Amitabh Bachchan had given lot of flops before Zanjeer but he also gave a brilliant performance in Anand for which he won Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. I believe Namak Haraam released before Zanjeer (not sure) but if it did he did overshadow Rajesh Khanna the then superstar.

    Kalyanji-Anandji helping him or Mehmood being mentor is not a bad thing.

    I had posted Kader Khan Interview on why his relationship with Amitabh went wrong before.

    As for his affair Rekha herself admitted in a interview which I posted earlier.

      But there was hell lot more than this which is not available on internet now & why is tht?

      Well both in Anand & Sholay he was a side kick, most of his films are Multistarrer & just like others he too used political connection to establish his name in the industry, begged for work & at the same time he turned against those who helped him in his struggling days… Ye bhi koi doodh ka dhula nahin hai.

    This and other such posts -(including yakuza’s scans or Danish’s rants) can be termed as “The other and the more prominent side of Fandom”

    FS :

    Bard said, ” Frailty Thy name is woman”
    Now Paraphrase it, ” Fraility, Thy name is Star/Celebrity”

    We, the fans of star are to be blamed for having high opinion of them and deifying stars. Why we shift our foolishness, stupidity to them.. They work on this and they feed it continously so that flame of fandom burns as long as possible..

    Amitabh is as much flawed as any other star.. he has done all those things in his prime which he now abhors..

    Duniya ki yahin reet hain, Haar kar Jeet hain”… U will see as stars age and flame of fame ebbs out they become wise and intelligent and introspective…

    Why are you adding hashtags to the names like #Amitabh #Bachchan in the post? I don’t think it makes any difference and is not searchable by that hashtag like on twitter or FB.

      Just came across something amusing in a work related matter, so thought to experiment it here. I think # narrows down the search. If you want I’ll remove the hashtags.. But let it be for a week
