Amitabh Bachchan Shows Us What The Filmfare Awards Looked Like 46 Years Ago


NEW DELHI: "Babumoshai, zindagi badi honi chahiye, lambi nahi..." - is one of the most iconic dialogues of Rajesh Khanna from Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Anand, which released on March 12 in 1971. The following year, Rajesh Khanna won the Best Actor Filmfare Award for Anand while Amitabh Bachchan, who played Dr Bhaskar Banerjee or babumoshai in the movie, won Best Supporting Actor. As Anand clocked 47 years in Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted a piece of throwback gold from the 19th Filmfare Awards (1972), which also saw Hrishikesh Mukherjee collecting the Best Picture Award for Anand. In the group photo, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan share the stage with the other big winners of the night - Asha Parekh (won Best Actress for Kati Patang) and Raj Kapoor (winner of Best Director for Mera Naam Joker).

The 19th Filmfare Awards was a big night for Team Anand. Apart from the above mentioned categories, the film also won Best Story, Best Dialogue and Best Editing at the Filmfare Awards. Credits for the Anand's much-appreciated dialogues go to Gulzar while story credits go to Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

This is what Amitabh Bachchan tweeted: "19th Filmfare Awards night... Rajesh Khanna best actor Anand; Asha Parekh best actress; Raj Kapoor best director for Mera Naam Joker; Karanjia editor of the mag; Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw chief guest; AB best supporting for Anand; Hrishi Da best story and best picture!" 

Last week, Twinkle Khanna chanced upon a "priceless" photo of her father Rajesh Khanna from when he was shooting the song Zindagi Kaisi Hai Paheli for Anand. This is what she had to say:

Amitabh Bachchan is currently working with Ayan Mukerji for Brahmastra, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. His upcoming projects also include 102 Not Out (with Rishi Kapoor) and Thugs Of Hindostan (with Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif.)
