Amitabh Bachchan and Anurag Kashyap have come together for Bombay Talkies
Anurag Kashyap and Amitabh Bachchan weren't exactly on good terms for the last few years. There were several reasons behind it but both of them finally joined hands and decided to come together for a short film on 100 years of Indian cinema in Bombay Talkies. The film is about a diehard fan's wish to meet Mr Bachchan in person.
So how did the newfound friendship come about?
Anurag explains, "There was something between us. What exactly it was I also have forgotten, then the article on Black happened and then something else happened with Abhishek and the silence kept on increasing. We finally began talking thanks to Mr Bachchan's magnanimity.
A smaller man will have a bigger ego. It was his personality that he went out and praised Gangs of Wasseypur Part 1, I didn't reply back to him then, everyone told me I should and I told them, why should I?"
He adds, "Then one day, I was sitting and I told myself it is high time that we should solve our issues and he is giving me a chance to do that. So I had two pegs and I replied back to him and asked him if I could meet him and the reply came that you can come home whenever you want. When I met him, the Bachchan fan in me came out."
