The award for the best throwback post goes to Amitabh Bachchan. The veteran actor has shared a blast-from-the-past moment on Instagram. In the pic, he is sitting on a camel. The photo was clicked on the sets of Reshma aur Shera, which was released in 1971. Location: Pochina, Jaisalmer. Wondering what is so special about the picture? Big B has explained it in the caption. Referring to his height, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “When I came to join films in 1969 all of them used to call me Unnt [Camel]! So, I thought I would justify that and mounted one [ROFL emoji].” Sharing details about the photo, he added, “This is from my 2nd film Reshma aur Shera … location Pochina, miles into the desert beyond Jaisalmer.” The actor concluded, “Now fortunately they don't call me that … the titled epithet has been usurped by several others.”
Reshma aur Shera also starred Sunil Dutt, Waheeda Rahman, Rakhee Gulzar and Vinod Khanna. The film was also directed by Sunil Dutt. Now, take a look at the image shared by Amitabh Bachchan:
