Amitabh Bachchan is an Indian film actor, film producer, television host, occasional playback singer, and former politician. He first gained popularity in the early 1970s for films such as Zanjeer, Deewaar, and Sholay, and was dubbed India’s “angry young man”. Since then he has been one of the most iconic personalities of Bollywood.
Over the years a lot of blockbusters have been remade of the “angry young man” from the like of Zanjeer and Don to Agneepath. Now fans will see another remake of Big B’s blockbuster, which is Namak Halal. Producer of Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has bought the remake rights of Namak Halal, which also featured late Smita Patil and Shashi Kapoor in key roles. Murad Khetani confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I have bought the rights to remake Amitabh Bachchan-Shashi Kapoor-Smita Patil-Parveen Babi starrer Namak Halal. It’s a film that has been loved across generations and by people of all ages. We are working on the script at this point. We haven’t approached any actor or director for the film as of now. We will work on the casting once we lock the script completely.”
Another confusion was created when he tweeted that “Guys u can write how many ever make belief stories about me but don’t make up things about my dad. This is a completely fabricated story … will see u (on) Christmas to make u laugh,”
furthermore, the actor recently completed eight years in Bollywood, and wrote a note to thank fans for their support. “It’s been eight years since this journey began between me and you. Thank you for believing in me when no one did. I remember every city I toured. The signs, letters, gifts, tattoos and most Importantly the love.”
