Ajooba, which released on April 12, 1991, was made with Russian collaboration. On Twitter, fans posted images from the shoot in Ukraine, then a part of the USSR.
In 2013, Amitabh Bachchan revealed on Facebook that Shashi Kapoor was a strict taskmaster on set and wielded a stick which he used 'generously' on his troops whenever there was indiscipline in the ranks. "He lost the stick in Russia, Thank God," write Big B in a post on Facebook. Now's a good time to ask - lost or 'lost'?
Ajooba, which co-starred Dimple Kapadia, Sonam and Amrish Puri, lost money when it released but has acquired cult status over the years.
Big B, meanwhile, also wished his fans on the Punjabi festival of Baisakhi. His mother Teji Bachchan was a Punjabi.
