Big B Took Anesthesia Shots, Copied Junior B’s Dance Moves For ‘Khaike Paan Banaraswala’ Song


Mumbai: While celebrating 42 years of success of his 1978 blockbuster movie ‘Don’, Amitabh Bachchan shared about the pain he underwent during the shoot of the super-hit number ‘Khaike Paan Banaraswala’.

Big B wrote in his blog that he had developed painful blisters on his feet following a hectic schedule since he was shooting for 2-3 movies at the same time.

As he had to shoot for the song ‘Khaike Paan Banaraswala’ barefoot, he asked his doctor to give him anesthesia injections so that he can bear the pain of sore feet.

And he tried out his son’s Abhishek Bachchan, who was a little boy then, dance moves in this song.

He wrote, “Those days we worked in 2-3 shifts per day on different films .. I was shooting in the morning shift 7am-2pm at China creek .. an outdoor location some miles our of the city .. it was an action sequence .. had injured my feet .. blisters all around .. and came to Mehboob Studios from China Creek to shoot this number .. had to dance bare feet .. blisters were impossible to walk on .. so what .. called the doc .. took anaesthesia injections in the feet and worked the 4-5 days that took to shoot it.”

About the dance moves, he wrote, “thats a copy of Abhishek .. as a little fellow whenever he heard music he would dance and do this side step .. I copied that from him for the song.”

He also shared some pictures from the 70s.

Produced by Nariman Irani and directed by Chandra Barot, ‘Don’ was written by Salim-Javed. Besides, Amitabh Bachchan, the movie also had Zeenat Aman, Pran, Helen and Iftekhar in prominent roles.
