Big B thanks SRK for his wishes on ‘Yudh’
Amitabh Bachchan is not only revered as a Bollywood legend but is also highly respected as a true gentleman. Big B again proved his class when he thanked SRK for wishing success of his upcoming TV fiction series ‘Yudh’. Shahrukh Khan had tweeted on 5th July that the show would be ‘path breaking’. SRK wrote, “@SrBachchan waiting for Yudh. Am sure it will be path breaking as all your other endeavours have been. Let's do football one nite sir.” Shahrukh Khan has always shared a cordial relationship with Amitabh and his family. Although few years ago Bollywood was rife with stories about a cold war between the two icons, both SRK and Big B were always respectful to each other. In this occasion too there was no exception as Amitabh replied to SRK’s tweet and said, "Thank you SRK for your wishes for 'Yudh'. Whether it will be path breaking or not is not known (sic)." Amitabh also discussed about the football game proposed by SRK. Big B posted, "What will be path breaking will be if I can beat you at the PS4 football game that you invite me for!" Both Shahrukh and Amitabh are known as football lovers and are following the FIFA world cup.
While ‘Yudh’ is Big B’s first fictional work on television, Shahrukh actually started his acting career on television. He acted in shows like ‘Fauji’ and ‘Circus’ before getting picked up for films. Big B first entered television in 2000 when he hosted the highly popular reality game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. Shahrukh later replaced Amitabh for one season as host. The two of them has also done several films together, like- ‘Mohabbatein’, ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, ‘Bhoothnath’ and ‘Bhootnath Returns.’ In those films they have shown good chemistry.
Amitabh Bachchan is now gearing up for the launch of ‘Yudh’ that will be telecasted on Sony entertainment television from 14th July. It has been co-produced by Amitabh Bachchan’s company Saraswati Creations and Endemol India. The plot of the series follows Yudhishthir Sikarwar, a real estate tycoon, who has been diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder. It traces his journey to the top and his battles with failing health, business rivals and his family.
He is also involved with a film called ‘Shamitabh’ directed by R.Balki. Big B will act in the film and will also be one of the producers.
