Mumbai, May 3 Gulshan Grover is quite impressed with Amitabh Bachchan’s commitment and praises him for shooting for his make-up man Deepak Sawant’s Bhojpuri film “Gangadevi” despite his ill-health.
“During the shooting of ‘Gangadevi’ one thing that I noticed that today when successful actors easily forget their friends, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan shot for their make-up man’s film in intense heat,” Gulshan told reporters Wednesday at the launch of the first look of “Gangadevi”.
“Amitabh worked in the film despite being unwell and I salute him for having such a wonderful quality. When you will see the film, you’ll realise the place it was shot in is very hot. I have never seen this quality in any actor,” added the 56-year-old, who is making his debut in Bhojpuri movies with “Gangadevi”.
Meanwhile, Sawant considers himself lucky to have the love of Big B.
“I sometimes feel that Amitji loves me so much that no one can be luckier than me. I pray to god that his love remains with me forever. I feel I am Ram-bhakt Hanuman, he is Ram and I am Hanuman. If he tells me to pick up a mountain, I’ll do it for him,” said Sawant who worked with Amitabh as his make-up man for about four decades.
Big B had earlier worked in his 2006 Bhojpuri film “Ganga” as well.
