Abhishek's moment of pride
On Monday morning Abhishek Bachchan created quite a record while shooting for his film Players. The actor became one of the rare actors to have worked with Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna and Rishi Kapoor – three of the biggest names of '70s and '80s.
Vinod Khanna plays an important part in Abbas-Mustan’s Players and that’s when Abhishek got to shoot with the veteran actor. “Just did my 1st shot with Vinod uncle for players. I can now proudly say that I've worked with Amar Akbar Anthony!” tweeted the actor. “Don't know many actors of my generation that have been lucky enough to say that,” he added.
Of course he is not the first one to films with all the three senior actors. His contemporaries Said Ali Khan, Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan have done that earlier. Interestingly despite being in the industry for almost two decades Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have not achieved the feat. While SRK is yet to work with Vinod Khanna, Aamir has not acted with BigB despite the fact that he had got Amitabh Bachchan to be the voice-narrator for his film Lagaan.
