- Big B shared a black and white picture of himself
- The photo is from the sets of his iconic film Zanjeer
- He can be seen holding a clapboard in the pic
Can we call Amitabh Bachchan the king of throwback moments? Because, right now, we can’t think of a better title for the veteran actor. We aren’t exaggerating here. You will also agree after seeing the latest post shared by the actor. So, where it is? On Twitter. Amitabh Bachchan has uploaded a throwback snap from the sets of the iconic film Zanjeer. The best part? The picture features the muhurat shot. We see the clapperboard, in front of Amitabh Bachchan, with the name of the film and muhurat written on it. Then, there is a strap for the dateline and it read, “June 30, 1972”. What else do you need on a post-Diwali morning? But, wait there is more. The picture is not from Amitabh Bachchan’s photo gallery. Someone sent it. No more suspense. The actor has revealed the name in his caption. Read it here. “T 4086 – Javed [Akhtar] saheb sent this picture.” Javed Akhtar along with Salim Khan had penned the dialogues for Zanjeer.
The Prakash Mehra directorial cemented Amitabh Bachchan’s position as the “angry young man” of Bollywood. The film also featured Jaya Bachchan and Pran Sikand in crucial roles. Here is the muhurat shot we are talking about. Take a look:
