Kamal Haasan recalls why he hated Amitabh Bachchan’s Sholay
The Vikram actor further added, “Each film of his is filled with reality. He puts so much effort in each film. The roles that he has played are quite amazing. It’s an honor to be in the same film as him. We have done a Couple of films together but this one is going to be very special.”
He also revealed that the actor worked as assistant director on Sholay and shared a funny incident. The Vikram actor said, “I was an assistant director on Sholay. I couldn’t sleep the night I watched it because I hated the film so much. I hated the filmmaker even more. I had the opportunity of working with a great filmmaker and that was my reaction and I told him. As a technician, I couldn’t sleep that night and Amitji has done many such movies. Him saying nice things about my films is something I had never imagined.”
On playing negative role in Kalki
Kamal Haasan also shared why he chose to be a part of the film and said, “The reason I accepted this film is because I come from analogous cinema. Without a negative, there’s no positive. So, a negative role is an important role in a film.”
