Being considered as one of toppest actors by having more than 190 films to his credits, Amitabh Bhachchan is a dear friend to both Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan with whom he shared his screen space in Bollywood films. Unfortunately, Amitabh is yet to make his debut in Tamil film industry whereas Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan made significant movies in Bollywood industry.
Kamal Haasan is very well known among Hindi speaking audience for his 100th film Ek Duje Keliye, Saagar etc. He acted along with Amitabh Bachchan in a film named as Geraftaar in which Rajinikanth also made a cameo appearance. As it is very much visible for us through public events that Kamal Haasan is maintaining a good relationship with Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, legendary filmmaker Bhagyaraj, in his recent interview revealed a bitter truth about the true characters of both the actors.
Bhagyaraj who worked with both the actors revealed how Amitabh Bachchan feared of losing his entire acting career because of Kamal Haasan. Bhagyaraj says that Amitabh Bhachchan was supposed to act along with Kamal Haasan in a film which went unreleased because of the insecurity of Big B.
“In that film which was directed by S. Ramanathan, both Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan were roped in together. It was shot halfway but was dropped when Amitabh Bachchan intervened. As per the story, Kamal Haasan should die at the end which is the only way to conclude the story. If he dies the character of Amitabh Bachchan would be overshadowed and will make no impact in the audience. Knowing about this, Amitabh Bachchan asked the director to drop the movie and accepted to give compensation. ” said Bhagyaraj in the interview. According to Bhagyaraj, Amitabh felt that letting a south Indian actor to ruin his career is not a sane decision.
