Believe it or not Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan touched Sanjay Dutt’s feet. The unthinkable happened in the Sujoy Ghosh directed Aladin when it a particular scene Big B who plays the Genie had to kneel down and touch the feet of Ringmaster played by Sanjay Dutt. Sujoy Ghosh considered the scene to be very important as it contributed to the dramatic quotient of the movie.
The entire team was apprehensive about shooting the scene as they were asking the living legend of Indian cinema to touch someone’s feet. Director Sujoy Ghosh was worried about the reaction of millions of Indians to it. Sanjay Dutt too wasn’t game for the scene at first since Amitabh Bachchan is too big a name to be kneeling down on his feet.
Amitabh Bachchan didn’t hesitate in going by the demand of the script and encouraged everyone including Ghosh to shoot the important sequence. The movie will be worth a watch because never in his career the ’angry young man’ of the 70s or the ’Godfather’ of the millennium has been shot kneeling down in somebody’s feet.(TNN)
