Choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan is floored by the energy and passion that veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan exhibits at the age of 71. Farah got to choreograph the legend, who celebrated his 71st birthday recently.
"He (Amitabh Bachchan) is a phenomenal actor and the amount of hard work
he does even now is amazing. I know this as I have choreographed songs with him. I have done songs like Shava Shava, Rock n Roll with him. He is just amazing. The amount of energy, hard work and passion he still has is just unparalleled,” says Farah.
Recalling the time when she was shooting with Big B, the choreographer said he works tirelessly.
"He was the most hard working actor. He used to do rehearsals and I never saw him leaving the work in between and going into the vanity van," she says.
"Either he used to sit there on the set reading a book or kept on asking me for the rehearsal. We used to get tired, but he never used to get tired,” adds Farah, who is also a big fan of the superstar, known for giving hit films such as Zanjeer (1973) and Sholay (1975).
"Every Friday (Farah’s brother) Sajid (Khan) and I used to go to Chandan and Lido cinemas to watch his movies. That used to be an outing for us,” says Farah.
