In a recent episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, Amitabh Bachchan recounted an incident from a Shola film, saying that in one of the scenes, Dharmendra fired from a real gun and the bullet came out of his ear. He narrowly survived the incident. In this film, Amitabh Bachchan was in the role of Jai, while Dharmendra played the role of Veeru. In the role of two friends, Dharmendra and Amitabh’s pair was well liked in this iconic movie. It was one of the films that marked Amitabh’s rise to stardom.
Interestingly, in this film, Amitabh Bachchan opposite Jaya later became his wife, while Dharmendra married Hema Malini in the role of Basanti. However, there is one more thing about which very few people still know. Actually Dharmendra recommended Ramesh Sippy to take Amitabh Bachchan in Jai’s role in this film. Amitabh Bachchan also accepts this. But he had accepted this after several decades of his career.

He never said this before. So now when he says this, people say that he is great, not me. ‘
