Today marks the day when Amitabh Bachchan’s film Besharam completes 39 years of release and Amitabh Bachchan, the megastar himself took to his blog reminiscing the times he spent with the co-actors, producers and late director of the movie Deven Verma.
Speaking of the good times, Big B wrote “Deven was delightful company with life devoid of sadness and tribulation. Deven Verma… a fine colleague a wonderful human and a delightful company.
His mode of our greeting would always be with a standard that we had established.‘This floor is made of cement concrete!’, as we sank in the floor pretending that it was giving in,” he posted. ”It was a laugh, a way of his life filled with never a moment of grief or sadness or trial or tribulation. It was infectious, it was all embracing and ever fun. It was a quality that one noticed with great rarity, it percolated about,” he added.
Besharam was the movie which was Deven’s first directorial venture featuring actors Sharmila Tagore, Amjad Khan, A.K. Hangal, Iftekhar and Nirupa Roy.
