Amitabh Bachchan, the first choice for Mr India

The third day of the Jio MAMI 17th Mumbai Film Festival saw the reunion of the cast and crew of Anil Kapoor and Sridevi-starrer Mr India. At the event, a lesser known fact about the movie was revealed by Javed Akhtar. He said that the makers had thought of casting Amitabh Bachchan in Mr India.

“A film by Pramod Chakravorty, with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead, was being shot. In the first shot, they had a tape recorder and his voice was played. A moving shot was taken. That’s when the idea of invisible man theme came up. But things did not work out with him (Amitabh Bachchan),” said Akhtar.
