BR Chopra first considered this actor for Baghban, instead of Amitabh Bachchan


<p>The 2023 movie Baghban, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini, was one of the highest-grossing movies. The movie has remained rent-free in the audience’s hearts for years. A number of hearts were won and the audience was moved to tears by Amitabh and Hema Malini’s moving performance. But did you know that Amitabh wasn’t originally considered for the big screen hit?</p>

<p>The fact that Baghban took forty years to develop is fascinating to know. BR Chopra had initially intended to work with Dilip Kumar on Baghban, but that intention was shelved 30 years before the movie’s premiere. Originally, the film told the tale of a couple who were over 60 years old and had been married since the late 1970s. Unfortunately, a number of problems caused the picture to be postponed and ultimately never materialized. When Baghban was later brought back to life, Dilip Kumar was no longer eligible, therefore Amitabh Bachchan took over as Raj Malhotra.</p>
<p>Not only that, but Salman Khan eventually took on the part of the decent son that Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini adopted; despite his brief appearance, Salman Khan received positive reviews from the audience. Originally, Shah Rukh Khan was the front-runner for the role.</p>
<p>BR Chopra first got the basic concept for Baghaban when he visited an elderly home in Norway and spoke with a lady who claimed that her children had abandoned her. Under the direction of Ravi Chopra, the son of BR Chopra, the movie included important performances by Samir Soni, Mahima Choudhary, Aman Yatan Varma, Rimi Sen, Avatar Gill, and Asrani. Produced at a budget of Rs 12 crore, the movie grossed a staggering Rs 43.13 crore globally and became an enormous blockbuster.</p>
<p>Amitabh Bachchan will next be featured in the film Kalki 2898 AD, which also has Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Kamal Haasan, and Disha Patani in significant roles. The science fiction dystopian movie, directed by Nag Ashwin, will open in theaters on May 9.</p>
