Oi oi.. My


from Juhu wants me to hear this piece of information on Amitabh Bachchan. Seems apart from the script and his role, there’s also an emotional reason for his signing Prakash Jha’s next film,



My khabru recalls Big B receiving a late night call from Smita Patil many years ago, while he was shooting Coolie in Bangalore. Surprised, he wondered if she was okay. Affirming that she was, she inquired about his well-being.

Glad that Bachchan


was fine, Patil told him about seeing a nightmare that worried her a lot to make her call him. Big B met with an accident the following day.

Big B reminicised about how Patil visited him regularly while during hospitalisation and recovery. And that is why working with Prateik in


also has an emotional aspect to the movie.
