Right from the storyline to performances and music, the movie acquired a large amount of appreciation from the audience. But did you know that Large B was in no way the first preference for the movie? According to Achala Nagar, the writer of the novel, famous actor Dilip Kumar was the 1st preference for the movie. It was noted that he turned down the film as he could not make your mind up on his co-actress.
The movie bought released in 2003 pretty much soon after 20 years just after it was available to Dilip Kumar. BR Chopra handed on the script to his son Ravi and later on it was made. In an aged job interview, Achala advised PTI, “When BR Chopra approached Kumar for the purpose, he had reported that neither Nargis, nor Meena Kumari was alive… even Raakhee experienced stopped doing the job in movies. He turned down the position because he considered that no up to date actress was appropriate to perform the job opposite him.”
The author further added, “He could not consider of anyone who would be able to evaluate up to him, both equally in phrases of seniority and title. So, the film could not go on floors then.”
