Back in 1977, Amar Akbar Anthony starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Vinod Khanna released and was a smashing hit. Today, the film completes 43 years and on this day, Amitabh Bachchan took a trip down memory lane and shared rare throwback photos from the shoot of the film. Not just this, Big B also shared a cute photo from the shoot of the song My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves when Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan paid him a visit. 

While taking a trip down memory lane, Big B also revealed that back then when Amar Akbar Anthony released, it did a business of Rs 7.25 Crore in total. The senior star said that if inflation was adjusted in today’s time, the film’s business could have surpassed Prabhas starrer Baahubali 2’s business. However, Big B went beyond numbers and remembered the good old days with throwback photos. Among them, the cutest photo was of Mr Bachchan with Shweta and Abhishek.

Meanwhile, many stars like Abhishek Bachchan, Maniesh Paul, Bhumi Pednekar and others commented on Big B’s photo with his children and were in awe of the same. The film was about three brothers who are separated due to circumstances and grow up with different faiths and religions. They are reunited in the end. Directed by Manmohan Desai, the film was a big hit back in the days.

I've seen this picture... somebody else, one of the kids must have put it up somewhere, and probably not Insta.

Amitabh Bachchan was a megastar.Nobody denies or questions this.Even at 76 he's enjoying the limelight and offers for endorsements(although some aren't the highest ranking products).He's seen the zenith of success,fame and money.WHY THEN does he keep bragging about himself?Why so desperately running calculations about inflation to prove his success? At this stage of his life he should have become a more mature and less self-centred person.But no,he ceaselessly brags about himself and his achievements.Seeing him and his daughter in law Aishwarya it becomes very obvious and shocking how addictive fame is for these celebs.They can't let go of it,even decades after their hey day is gone.Their lives are completely devoid of reality,ignorant of the people around them,and they only chase public acceptance and glory.Amitabh Bachchan has misbehaved with so many women,but it's all swept under the carpet.They're blinded by their sense of self-importance.

Movie was equally divided among 3 heros and their love interest of the movie. Infact Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh track was the best among the 3. But Bachchan will never say that.

His heyday is never gone and he is not bragging about his success..he is just stating facts which he is entitled to as it is his movie..
