SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion is one of the highest grossing films in India with a global business of over Rs 1,800 crore.
Amar Akbar Anthony chronicles the story of three brothers, each raised in different religious households, who reunite after several years in a chance encounter.
The 77-year-old actor recalled when he first heard the title from Manmohan Desai, he thought the director had “lost it.”
“At a time in the 70”s when film titles revolved around ”Behen”, ”Bhabhi” and ”Beti”, this one was so out of place…”
Bachchan also shared a black and white picture from the set with his children in his arms.
“Shweta and Abhishek visit me on set of Amar Akbar Anthony, shooting song ‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ at Holiday Inn Ballroom . this pic on the beach front,” he added.
