With its grand star-casts and great makers, ‘Trishul’ indeed is a movie to be ever-remembered and hence, Amitabh Bachchan, on the 38th year of its release, took a stroll down his memory lane to remember the shooting days.
Speaking about his young days and its oddities, the 73-year-old actor said, “Often we would keep it going till the wee hours of the morning, and emerge after the sun had made an appearance for the new day, and we were on our way to our respective rooms, while Yash ji would be standing at the reception in admiration of Shashi ji and me, being ready for the days shoot much before time; little realising of course that our night was yet to end !!!”
The ‘Wazir’ actor, here spoke about spending time in the only ‘disco’ in New Delhi then, named ‘Tabela’ in newly appointed Oberoi Intercontinental Hotel.
Big-B also mentioned, “New Delhi was the location for most of the film and the newly appointed Oberoi Intercontinental Hotel was the parking lot of the cast .. and for some of the scenes as well ..”
“Youth and its oddities shall never return, neither will its madness .. this surely was our years of madness .. !!” he added.
‘Trishul,’ according to Big-B, was “quite a dynamic film and somewhat progressive in its story and scripting.”
The film also starred legendary actors like Sanjeev Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Prem Chopra, Sachin Pilgaonkar and more.
‘Trishul,’ directed by Yash Chopra, was one of the highest grossers in the Box-Office in 1978.
