Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan might well be the superstars of Bollywood from different generations, but the charm of the former has been around for much longer, for which he has received a lot of praise. Recently, the actors sat down for a chat, and spoke about how their careers have turned out to be, and the different milestones they have covered over the years. 

Ahead of the release of Badla, the Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu-starrer, Shah Rukh Khan, whose Red Chillies Entertainment is producing the film, revealed a few interesting details. In their mutual admiration, Shah Rukh said Amitabh always arrived to film sets on time, a quality even he does not possess. 

The Zero actor said Amitabh does a lot more of films than is required of his professionalism as an actor, and he even works for 20 hours on the sets. During the chat, Amitabh also revealed that he was paid INR 5000 for his first-ever film that he signed in 1969, before SRK revealed how he has been the biggest fan of the actor. Interestingly, Shah Rukh said that he wanted to produce Badla being a fan, as he used to collect money to go watch his films. However, Amitabh joked and told him not to lie. 

Amitabh also revealed that one of the posters for Badla was rejected by Shah Rukh’s team, and he did not know why, and SRK immediately responded by saying that it was because he wanted it autographed for his personal collection. Badla is a Hindi crime thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh, and is an official adaptation of the 2017 Spanish movie, Contratiempo The Invisible Guest.
