New Delhi: Amidst the success of ’12th Fail’, we are hearing a lot of stories about Vidhu Vinod Chopra and his films. In fact, wherever the filmmaker went to promote his film, he carried a box of memories with him. He also made an interesting revelation about Amitabh Bachchan’s personality and attitude on the pretext of shooting for the film ‘Eklavya’.
Many actors find Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s behavior as a director intolerable. Tolerating them is a hardship in itself. When Amitabh Bachchan got the chance to work with Vidhu in ‘Eklavya’, Jaya Bachchan told him about the nature of the director. The actress said that she could not tolerate Vidhu even for a week. It went as planned. It was only 10 days after the shooting started and differences started between Amitabh and Vidhu.
Gifted a luxury car to Amitabh Bachchan
Vidhu said in an interview to Siddharth Kannan that he was afraid that Amitabh Bachchan would leave the shooting of ‘Eklavya’ midway, but Amitabh Bachchan acted contrary to his fear. He reached the set as usual and finished shooting the film. The director was so pleased with Amitabh Bachchan’s professional attitude that he gifted him a Rolls Royce car, worth Rs. 4.5 crores.
Great acting by Amitabh Bachchan
Talking about the movie ‘Eklavya’, people liked it a lot, but it did not do well at the box office. From the fact that India sent it to the Oscars, you can guess what the film is like. Amitabh Bachchan’s acting in the film is excellent.
