"Black…a movie way ahead of it's time" says Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee starrer ‘Black’ completed 16 years. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan shared on his instagram, “ Its has been 16 years…since Debraj Sahai. Black…a movie way ahead of its time. Every dialogue, every instance in the movie was so beautifully crafted, that it has engraved its existence on everyone’s heart, including mine. #16YearsOfBlack #RaniMukerji #SanjayLeelaBhansali @bhansaliproductions.” Rani Mukerji's performance in this movie has been noted as one of her notable works. Did you know that Amitabh Bachchan didn’t take any salary to work in the project as he revealed that just working with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in such a project was “sufficient fees.” SLB chose the word black for the film's title; according to him, black is his favorite color and he felt it has a "universal resonance". The film also won several awards, including eleven Filmfare Awards—the most for a single film at that time—and three National Film Awards.
