31 years later, Amitabh Bachchan gets nostalgic about ‘Sharaabi’

Amitabh Bachchan, who is basking in the success of the father-daughter tale in “Piku”, is nostalgic about how “Sharaabi”, which released 31 years ago, delved on the father-son camaraderie.

The 1984 drama revolves around a son played by Amitabh, of an uncaring and ruthless businessman (Pran), who grows up to be an alcoholic and a spoilt brat but with a kind heart.

“It’s 31 years of ‘Sharaabi’ .. goodness feels like just the other day we were on the World Tour of 1983, the very first of its kind for the Industry and having performed in almost 10 cities in US and London, flying to Trinidad & Tobago from NYC, when Prakash Mehra also travelling with me, suggests we should do a film based on a father son relationship where the son is an alcoholic,” Big B wrote on his blog.

The 72-year-old actor also took to his micro-blogging website Twitter account to share his thoughts.

“31 years of ‘SHARAABI’ .. seems just the other day we were on set for the film ! Story conceived at 35,000 ft over the Atlantic,” he tweeted.

Also reminiscing some other tidbits from the film’s shooting, he said that “during the making of ‘Sharaabi’ a bomb blew up his hand”.

“I went ahead in order not to disturb or cause delay. The hand had been reduced to pulp. It looked like a raw cooked tandoori chicken. Every portion of the hand had melted. But I continued to work”.

There was also a fight sequence, which the actor says was “choreographed” by him.

“Like the fight sequence in the bar when I take on the guys that had stolen my watch and chain etc. That was choreographed by me…Fun times,” he wrote.

  • @indicine
    when u will post articles on nawazuddin siddhiqui.even on his birthday.he has become a huge star.but if amitabh gets nostalgic on his movie then u post articles.Is this fair indicine.

  • now people must have to think at least once if KING KHAN and BIGB can celebrated their old years back CLASS movies then must be appreciable but the f some non actors like salman and his illiterate fans if will start to do the same,then surely the world will laugh.look at @bajrangi bhushan,kindly forgive everyone whatas he thought about celebrate mpk,lol.even our bhai also feels so shame and scare to do that.everyone kindly forgive him as a typical salwoman fan.

    BTW this TREND of celebrating years back old movies started by KING KHAN,it seems BIGB is following THE KING.I liked it and LEGEND must follow OTHER LEGENDS,though nothing against BIGB.

  • A brilliant act by Amitji in Sharabi. The songs, the dialogues, all epic.

    The fight scene was very hilarious.

  • @Bajrangi, He just shared it in his blog. He is not celebrating. You should curb your over enthusiasm, read a bit, understand and then comment. Cheers.

  • Funny how individuals like Big B become sharaabi after afew glasses or nipun becomes alcoholic after one or two lootera pegs but there are other individials out there who can become drunk n abusive by drinking excess amounts of another harmless perfectly legal substance like our Hyderabadi Engineering Genius who drinks Complan by the bucketload…!

    Each to their own
