The stars of Amar, Akbar Anthony are late Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan. Amar, Akbar, Anthony is one of the iconic films in Indian cinema history. Within very less time the film gained a cult status and very soon it became a very famous and favourite film. As today on its 43 years of its release, Amitabh Bachchan marked it by sharing a very admirable snap of his kids who arrived at a set of Amar, Akbar, Anthony while the shooting of song ‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ was going on. The snap was of little Shweta Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan also he shared interesting trivia on its BO collections that surpassed Bahubali 2’s Biz back then.
“SHWETA and Abhishek visit me on the set of Amar Akbar Anthony .. shooting the song ‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ .. at Holiday Inn Ball Room .. this pic on the beachfront .. 43 YEARS of AAA, today .. !!!” He also recalled the time when the director narrated the idea and title of the film which seemed a lot out of place for Big B, “When Manji came to narrate the idea to me .. and told me the Title .. I thought he had lost it .. at a time in the ’70s when film titles revolved around Behen Bhabhi and Beti, this one was so out of place .. BUT ..” while uploading the picture he captioned.
“BUT .. It is reported that it did a business of 7.25 cr at that time .. inflation adjusted it crosses collections of Bahubali 2 .. say the sayers who do calculations. But fact is it did massive business .. did 25 weeks in 25 theatres in Mumbai alone .. or so they say .. Doesn’t happen now … gone are those days!!” (sic) he said while speaking about Amar Akbar Anthony’s report.
