No doubt Amitabh Bachchan is a living legend. And when we talk about his prodigious film career, how can anyone forget about his immensely wondrous film ‘Black’?
Every time Big B had proved that not only he is a superstar but he is a magnificent human being, we can say so because of his extraordinary gestures, Big B had not even charged a single penny of his role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Black’.
Today the film completes 12 years and on this occasion, in a special blog dedicated to ‘Black’ says, Big B said that just being a part of such a beautiful project was more than enough for him.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote “I had just wanted to work with Sanjay, after seeing all his other works he had done... And when the opportunity came it was quite overwhelming. I did not take any salary for the film... Just being a part of such an enterprise, was sufficient fees!”
“At the premiere when we all saw the film, there were just those tears of joy within me, and of course the fact of having Dilip Saheb in the audience was a childhood dream coming true. When the film got over, he stood outside the hall, held my hands and just looked into my eyes.. It was, what I could have allowed, to last for a lifetime!” he wrote.
“12 years of its release...And each and every detail that accompanied it has been engraved on stone for me.”
Amitabh Bachchan got his second National Film Award in the Best Actor category for this film.
