Those two decisions of Rajesh Khanna, due to which Amitabh Bachchan became a superstar, but even Big B does not accept any favour


 Amitabh Bachchan: Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna are two famous stars of the industry. When one's career was ending, the other's was gaining momentum. One made a lot of headlines with his romantic style, while the other made people crazy with his image of an angry young man. When Big B reached the pinnacle of success, it would not be wrong to say that he got the limelight because of Kaka i.e. Rajesh Khanna. Amitabh's career reached heights only because of some decisions of Kaka.

One mistake of Kaka made Amitabh Bachchan a superstar

There was a time when Rajesh Khanna was the most popular name in Bollywood and Amitabh Bachchan was a new actor in the industry. Then Hrishikesh Mukherjee started making the film Namak Haram with Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh. Rajesh Khanna was very busy with this film. He was having issues with dates, due to which Hrishikesh Mukherjee started shooting the film with Amitabh and what happened was that while the film was being made, more scenes of Big B were seen while Rajesh Khanna appeared only as a special appearance.

Due to this, the distributors refused to buy the film. But then everyone was forced to change their decision. Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan's Zanjeer movie was released. This film made him a star overnight and distributors lined up to buy his movie.

Amitabh Bachchan was not the first choice for Deewar

When Yash Chopra saw the script of the film Deewar, he immediately agreed to make this movie. According to reports, Yash Chopra wanted to cast Rajesh Khanna in this film because he had worked with Rajesh Khanna in Daag before this. But Kaka had a line of films. He was having a date issue. Due to this, he was not able to give dates to the film Deewar.

Amitabh Bachchan became a star overnight with this film

Due to Rajesh Khanna's inability to give dates for the movie, Salim-Javed suggested Amitabh Bachchan's name. After this, Yash Chopra gave Big B the role of Vijay Verma in Deewar. Everyone knows the history after this, how this film made Amitabh Bachchan a superstar overnight. Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, stars like Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Bobby, Neetu Singh and Nirupa Roy have shown their acting skills in the film Deewar.
