Acting legend Amitabh Bachchan was hit with waves of nostalgia while filming for the upcoming thriller Teen Patti. The actor was reunited with old-time co-stars and friends from some of his classic films such as Ranjit, Shakti Kapoor and Tinu Anand. As well as that, Mr. Bachchan revisited his old shooting locations in South Mumbai, including the iconic set that formed the backdrop to the climatic scene in cult movie Deewar in which he was shot by fellow actor Shashi Kapoor.
In speaking about this, Amitabh Bachchan says “The iron gate which, on collision, had deprived me of my lucky badge — the number of my worker recognition when I had worked as a laborer — 786, still there after so many years. Not a scratch out of place. I walked past it and all those lovely days when we shot the classic came running by. At the docks, same lanes by the port. The grilled barriers still the same. A bit dented over time but still there.
Yashji and his 100 decibel directorial commands, the egg and roti at the end of the shoot from nearby dhabas.. delicious, dropping in at friends in the middle of the night and getting them out of bed, banter and fun and very serious committed work.”
With the same ingredients that have made Amitabh Bachchan’s films such iconic hits, Teen Patti is sure to make its mark in history too. Releasing in UK and worldwide on 26th February 2010.
