Very few luminaries in today’s time have the humility and compassion to extend their time for the sake of others. One such example is superstar, Amitabh Bachchan, who spent a considerable amount of time interacting with child actor, Parth Bhalerao, aka Akhrot of Bhoothnath Returns, before the shoot. Not only did they get along extremely well, but the acting legend made him feel so comfortable that Parth gave his best during the shoot.
Mr. Bachchan would constantly call him ‘Champion’, support and guide him. In fact, the silver screen veteran was so used to calling Parth ‘Champion’ to motivate the youngster that in one of the dialogues, he subconsciously slipped the word in during one of the scenes. The director gladly used the lines as it truly reflected the chemistry the duo shares, onscreen as well as off screen. Mr Bachchan would often cheer the junior up too when Parth, who hails from Pune, felt homesick for his friends and family.
