It has been 48 years since the release of Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna starrer film Anand from the Hindi cinema. The film was released on March 12, 1971. Along with this, the film made history in every respect. At the same time, Amitabh Bachchan has also shared his memories related to the film on social media after the 49 years of this film made under the direction of Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Along with this, he has told how due to this film he became a superstar in one night.
Along with this, Anand was in the early films of Amitabh's career when he did not get any special stardom and hardly people knew him. Amitabh Bachchan retweeted a fan's tweet on Twitter, stating that people did not recognize him until the release of the film. He had gone to fill the petrol in his car in the morning when no one recognized him. With this, when he reached the same petrol pump again in the evening, a crowd gathered to see him. While sharing this anecdote, Amitabh wrote - This is true and he is located in the Petrol Pump Irala. Anand was truly Amitabh Bachchan's first hit film and after that, he gave countless hits.
Everything that happened before that is history today. In the film, Rajesh Khanna played the role of a cancer patient who has a tremendous passion to live. The songs of the film were quite a hit and are still popular today. With this, if we talk about the current work in front of Big B, then Amitabh, who is moving towards the threshold of 80, has no shortage of films even today. Crores of producers are engaged in Amitabh. Despite deteriorating health and aging, Big-B continues to be active on the work front. Soon he will be seen working in the films Brahmastra and Gulabo Sitabo.
