RGV regrets working with Amitabh


More revelations are coming in as filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma’s latest book ‘Guns & Thighs’ is catching up steam at the bookstores. In the ‘My love affair with Amitabh Bachchan’ chapter, RGV revealed that his decision to cast Amitabh in films like Aag and Nishabd was a huge mistake.

“If somebody argues that Amitji had no business doing those films without knowing what he was getting into, yes, he was guilty of misplacing his trust in me, but he was not guilty of not doing his best,” said the eccentric filmmaker.

Varma also recalled how Amitabh’s makeup man prophesied on the first day of Nishabd’s shooting that “the film would not work because no one was going to accept Amitji in a role like that,” confessed Varma. Soon after the release of Aag and Nishabd, Big B was under huge criticism for choosing to be part of mindlessly horrible films.
