Big B reminisces time spent with Smita Patil

Mumbai, April 30 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, whose 1982 film “Namak Halal” opposite Smita Patil completed 34 years on Saturday, has shared memories of his time with the late actress during the shooting of the film.

The actor took to his blog, posting a few images of him and the late actress taken during the shoot and shared that Smita was “so uncomfortable during the shooting of the entire film”.

“‘Namak Halal’ celebrates 34 years…with the exceptional Smita Patil, who was so uncomfortable during the shooting of the entire film because she just could not understand why she was asked to do what she was asked to do in the film,” Amitabh posted.

“But she did it with a lot of personal persuasion from me and it came out fine. She was gentle and frail but stronger than anything you could ever encounter in a woman…truly a gift we lost we never should have,” he added.

The “Wazir” actor, who also wrapped up the shooting of the forthcoming film “Pink” shared that “most of the shooting for the film (‘Namak Halal’) was done at the newly constructed Seth Studios, the first air conditioned floor of its kind in the entire industry”.

“This is in the 1980s… its elegance and well managed and kept, ambiance was a delight to all of us, used to somewhat lesser maintained work places,” he said.
