In earlier times, film stars used to do action scenes risking their lives, Amitabh Bachchan told that there was neither safety nor body double.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been associated with the Indian film industry for a long time. He has been working since the time ‘black and white’ films were common and there were no body doubles or technology to help actors perform action sequences with ease and safety. Some time ago, Big B remembered those days and shared how doing action scenes at that time was completely different from today. Big B remembered the days when action sequences were shot without harness or VFX.

Amitabh Bachchan, who started acting with ‘Saat Hindustani’ in 1969, has been in the industry for many decades. The megastar, who has played lead roles in more than 200 films, has worked in Zanjeer, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Don and many action films.

What days those were.”

The action in Amitabh sir’s film was real, classic and worth watching.” A third commented, “Right sir, why did we call you a real action hero. Salute.” Sanjay Dutt’s wife Manyata Dutt also made a heart emoji on the post. Let us tell you that last year Big B was seen in the action film Ganpath with Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon.
