Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan was spotted alongside with Telugu top star Nagarjuna Akkineni, Kannada star Shivraj Kumar, Tamil star Prabhu, Malayalam actress Manju Warrier and Bollywood star Katrina Kaif at a recent jewellery ad shoot in Mumbai.
“These celebrities have been associated with the brand Kalyan Jewellers for years now. These legends from their respective industries have been the face of Indian Cinema and their contribution to the industry is exceptional,” says a press note.
It adds: “The onscreen chemistry of the actors were filled with the right emotions and portray the eternal bond of a family. The TVC has been shot by the famous Indian cinematographer Ravi Varman who has been part of some big projects like ‘Tamasha’, ‘Barfi’, ‘Jagga Jasoos’, ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela’ ‘Ram-Leela’.”
The last time these celebrities came together for a shoot was back in 2014. Post the ad shoot, Big B went on to share moments from the shoot on his social media pages.
He said, “Historic moment for Jaya and me… three superstar sons of three iconic legends’ of Indian film industry work together with us… what honour. Nagarjuna – son Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Telugu. Shiva Rajkumar – son Dr Rajkumar, Kannada. Prabhu – son Sivaji Ganesan, Tamil.”
He added: “I worked in remakes of films of Shivaji Ganesan and Dr Raaj Kumar… and Nag gave me the honour of being in a project with his legendary Father Akkineni Nageshwara… but what has been most special is the family bindings that we enjoy with each other – then and now. So many special moments to describe… but not enough time to do so now.”
