Big B reminisces about his Afghanistan visit
The actor says he had a dramatic time while shooting for 'Khuda Gawah'
Amitabh Bachchan's work took him to many countries and one of them was Afghanistan, now a war-ravaged nation, where the Bollywood megastar says he had a dramatic and exciting time while shooting for his 1992 release Khuda Gawah.
"I had been to Mazaar-e-Sharief in Afghanistan during the shooting of Khuda Gawah and had personally walked to the premises, from where I was put up, the whole town following, to offer my prayers and to address the people that had assembled outside. The mosque is built in blue ceramic. Majestic and awe inspiring," Amitabh, who took a walk down to memory lane, expressed his thoughts on his blog.
The 68-year-old star, who featured in Khuda Gawah with Sridevi in 1992, says his memories of shooting scenes there, are as fresh as ever.
"We were there to shoot the bushkashi sequence in the film - an experience which needs a couple of posts to describe that visit. Somewhere there are tapes taken by my own staff on video of that historic visit. That visit shall forever remain etched in my memory as one of the most dramatic and exciting. As dramatic and exciting as the bushkashi game on horseback, played live on the fields of the region, in a fashion that reminded me of the early films we saw of knights in shining armor, of duels and so Ivanhoe-ish!!"
