Bromance In Bollywood – Amitabh Bachchan And Shashi Kapoor
The examples of bromance in bollywood are not usually seen very often, we bring you on of the genuine bromance of it’s times. Long before Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor was considered one of the superstars and well-established actors in Bollywood. First time Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan were seen in Roti Kapda Aur Makaan, where Manoj Kumar also played a pivotal role. The bonding between Shashi and Amitabh developed and they gave some memorable movies and high-voltage performances together. Deewar and Silsila are just a few to name. Every scene between them in Deewar was very well acted and both the actors did justice with their parts. The scene from Silsila where Shashi Kapoor gets to know about his wife’s first love i.e. Amitabh Bachchan was a class apart.
The combo did some masala entertainers together and was largely loved by their audience. Especially films like Do Aur Do Paanch, Shaan and Namak Halaal were a few movies which are still watched by numerous fans and they still idolize their connection. Both the main leads used to complement each other so well that their movies were mostly a block buster at the box office (particularly between late 70’s to mid-80’s).
Even in 90’s when Amitabh came back after a short hiatus they both did 2 films Akayla and Ajooba; unfortunately both the films didn’t work as expected and faced disappointment in terms of business. But fans even today cherish those movies. Their Bromance in Bollywood, was known at large. They both had great respect and strong bonding between them. This kind of Bromance in Bollywood is missing today!
