Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], June 15 (ANI) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Friday recalled his "most awkward moment" which occurred during the shooting of his 1971 film 'Parwana'.
The 75-year-old said he was "hopeless and immature" when he was asked to dance and lip sync at the same time.
While posting a photograph of himself with former actress Yogeeta Bali on his blog, Amitabh wrote: "This be a song sequence from an early film of mine. 'Parwana', and this be Yogeeta Bali the leading lady of the film.
He added: "I was not the leading man, Navin Nischol was, and this was the most awkward moment for me because I had to dance and lip sync and I was hopeless and immature and just terrible - the fact that I still am is another matter - but there. There we are."
Amitabh further reminisced the days when he shot movies at the iconic Mohan Studio in Mumbai.
"Most of it ('Parwana') was shot at Mohan Studios. The studio with an amazing history. Bimal Roy did most of his work there. Today's generation would have trouble understanding the magnificent contribution of Bimal da to cinema. Hrishikesh Mukherji was his assistant. indeed all of Hrishi Da's films were all shot at Mohan Studios," he wrote.
The '102 Not Out' star said it was during the shoot of 'Anand' when his late mother Teji Bachchan visited him on the sets for the very first time.
"It was here (at Mohan Studio) during the shoot of 'Anand' that my mother visited me on set for the very first time having travelled from Delhi to spend some time with me," he wrote.
On the work front, Big B is currently shooting for Ayan Mukerji's 'Brahmastra', which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. (ANI)
