Amitabh Bachchan is one of the biggest superstars of this country. When it comes to him, not just the fans but also the biggest of stars are left starstruck and intimidated by him. His aura, his persona of ‘angry young man’ is such that even Aamir Khan was extremely nervous while working with him.


In Thugs of Hindostan, Aamir Khan will be seen sharing the screen space with Amitabh Bachchan for the first time ever, in his long span of career. Both of them are seen in a completely new and unique avatar in the movie, which is making the more anticipated one.

Recently, in an interview Aamir Khan revealed that he was extremely nervous about working with Amitabh Bachchan. He was concerned about a lot of things, one of them included whether he can smoke on sets when Amitabh Bachchan is around or not.

Hug from the Thug….!! Beat that!

A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on

He revealed that he went to Shah Rukh Khan to ask if he can smoke infront of Amitabh Bachchan or not, as SRK has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in many movies. He revealed :

“I smoke, but I was worried if I can smoke in front of Amit ji, so I decided to meet Shah Rukh, I went to meet him and asked , ‘Shah, Do you smoke in front of Amit ji?’. He said, ‘ Yes, there is no problem, I smoke in front of him.’ I asked him, “Did you ever asked him, ‘he is like, No, but he hasn’t stopped me ever’, I questioned him, what if he tells me anything on smoking.  He then suggested, “ Pehli din tu thodha door se pee, uske baad thodha thodha nazdik jaa, go smoothly”

Aamir Khan then went on to reveal that somehow the conversation between him and SRK reached Amitabh Bachchan’s ears and how he reacted. He said :

“One day after shooting in Malta I went to Amit ji and asked him if we can go and watch a movie together. While walking towards the theatre, he said, “ Aamir, I heard you went to Shah Rukh and asked whether you can smoke in front of me”.  I said, ‘Who told you this?’. He said, Avinash, I immediately asked, ‘Sir, what’s your answer’, he said, ‘ you can smoke in front of me, but it’s not good for your health’. I then asked him, sir, you smoke? He said,  ‘Yes, I do’ ”

Hilarious isn’t it?
