Deja vu of Smita Patil and Effects of Coolie incident on Actor Puneet Issar Just a day before his Coolie accident in 1982, Actress Smita Patil called him around midnight asking about his health because she had a nightmare in which she saw Amitabh Bachchan getting fatally hurt, to which Bachchan Sahab replied her that he was alright. But on the very next day he met with accident on set. Deja vu!!! After this unfortunate incident Actor Puneet Issar, who was playing negative lead in Coolie was blamed everywhere for his UNINTENDED hit while shooting that particular sequence. Puneet was boycotted by Bollywood, media and huge no. Of fans by Amitabh Bachchan. But as soon as Amitabh got back on set and Puneet apologized him Amitabh replied it was just an accident and this kind of accidents do happen on set. He also gave an example where Actor Vinod Khanna was at recieving end and Bachchan Sahab accidentally hit him during a shoot. And the following pic Bachchan Sahab intentionally clicked in front of media so that people can understand that everything is ok between them. But after almost three decades when Rekha went to promote her movie super naani in television show Bigg Boss season 14 where Puneet was one of the participant, she shaked hand and hugged every participant but intentionally ignored Puneet Issar. Well, we wish Puneet and Amitabh sir a very healthy life and more success ahead.

Happy Birthday to the most handsome man in the world. Your works are immortal Dev Sahab. Love you so much. The story behind Guru Dutt and Dev Anand's friendship The story goes that Vasanth Kumar Shivashankar Padukone and Dharam Dev Pishorimal Anand—two young men struggling to find a foothold in the Bombay film industry became friends when their shirts got exchanged in the laundry. Dev Anand was acting in Hum Ek Hain when he stumbled upon Guru Dutt—the young choreographer of the film—wearing his shirt. Dutt admitted that the shirt got swapped in the laundry and since he didn’t have another spare shirt, he wore it. This apparently insignificant incident became the foundation of a long-lasting friendship and they promised each other that if Guru Dutt turns a filmmaker, he would sign Dev as his hero, and if Dev ever produces a film, he would let Dutt helm it. Dev Anand did fulfill his promise. He asked Dutt to direct the second film under Navketan Films. Thus Baazi saw Dutt don the director’s mantle for the first time. Modelled on the film noir of ’40s , the crime thriller had some classic Hollywood camera techniques interspersed with what later became famous as ‘Guru Dutt shot’. Baazi turned out to be an important landmark in Dutt’s personal life as well. It was during the Muhurat shot of the film that he got mesmerised by Geeta Roy’s rendition of Tadbeer Se Bigdi Hui Taqdeer Banaa Le—a ghazal turned into a sensuous number by the sheer talent of the singer. And it didn’t take Dutt long to fall in love with the person behind the voice. The couple eventually got married in 1953. #happybirthday #devanand #gurudutt #geetadutt #goldenera #baazi #cid #jaal
