Veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has given many iconic performances. One of his famous performances is his role in Shahenshah. The actor had a comeback of sorts in the 1988 film, in which he played both a cop and a criminal-hunting vigilante. His portrayal of the grizzled vigilante in a black jacket and steel sleeves became a hit.
Interestingly, Bachchan gifted the jacket he wore in the film to a fan from Saudi Arabia. Delighted by the gesture, fan TWeeted today, “@SrBachchan To the legendary and one of the best actors in the entertainment world of all time, you are an honor not only to India but also to the world. Thanks for the gift you sent it means a lot.” Reacting to the tweet, Big B wrote, “Dearest and kindest friend… I am so honored that you received the gift of the steel arm jacket I wore in my film Shahenshah… someday , I’ll tell you how I got it back… my love for you.”
Shahenshah was released on 12 February 1988. The film changed Amitabh Bachchan’s credibility as an actor because it hit the theaters when he was not enjoying a good run of films.
He said on the film’s 30th anniversary on Twitter, “30 years of ‘Shahenshah’…amazing moments…came at a time when there was little hope of its release…because of the attacks on my credibility…but the people of the nation knew better…he had a open bumper and success! Thanks.”
Bachchan was last seen in Sooraj Barjatya’s Udsai last year, which also starred Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Danny Denzongpa and Parineeti Chopra. Bachchan will soon be seen in Project K Ribhu Dasgupta’s Section 84.
