Prakash Mehra’s Sharaabi’s turns 40, Here is Why Amitabh use to hide his left hand during shoot?

The movie Sharaabi, which has completed 40 years since its release, is fondly remembered for Amitabh Bachchan’s iconic performance and its melodious music. Directed by Prakash Mehra, the film was a box office success and remains a classic in Indian cinema.

Here are the behind-the-scenes stories and the legacy of its music continue to be cherished by fans.

Amitabh Bachchan’s Hidden Hand:
One of the interesting anecdotes about Sharaabi is related to Amitabh Bachchan’s left hand. Throughout the film, Bachchan is often seen with his left hand hidden in his pocket or speaking dialogues with his right hand. This was not just a stylistic choice but a necessity. In 1983, during Diwali celebrations, Amitabh Bachchan suffered burns on his left hand due to fireworks. To conceal his injury, he had to keep his left hand hidden during the shoot of Sharaabi.

Music and Songs:
The film’s music, composed by Bappi Lahiri, received widespread acclaim. The song “Inteha Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki” became immensely popular. Kishore Kumar won the Best Male Playback Singer Award for “Manzilen Apni Jagah Hain” at the 38th Filmfare Awards. Bappi Lahiri was also honored with the Best Music Director award for his exceptional work on the film.

Casting Choices:

  • Suresh Oberoi as Abdul: Originally, Prakash Mehra considered Shashi Kapoor for the role of Abdul, a butcher. However, he felt the role didn’t suit Kapoor’s personality and eventually cast Suresh Oberoi, who delivered a memorable performance.
  • Deepak Parashar as Inspector Anwar: Initially, Vijendra Ghatge was considered for the role of Inspector Anwar, but his high fee led Prakash Mehra to reconsider. Through actress Padmini Kapila, the role was offered to Deepak Parashar. Parashar was initially nervous about acting alongside the legendary Amitabh Bachchan but was encouraged by Kapila to take on the role, which he did successfully.

Sharaabi remains a film that not only entertained audiences but also created lasting memories for those involved and those who enjoyed its music and performances. The behind-the-scenes stories and the legacy of its music continue to be cherished by fans.
