Abhishek Bachchan loves sharing throwback pictures of him and his family on social media. Every Thursday, he makes it a point to post a candid and rare photo and we absolutely love it.
Today the handsome actor shared a photo from the sets of Raavan, the Mani Ratnam film which also starred his beautiful wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The movie released in 2010 and received mixed reviews.
Not only did Abhishek share a photo from the making of the movie, but also spoke about an anecdote from the shoot of the song Thok De Killi.
“#throwbackthursday on the sets of Ravan. The 2 mani’s discussing something on my face! Mani Ratnam and Mani Kandan ( cinematographer). This was whilst filming the song Thok De Killi. A very difficult song to shoot because of the location. We had built the set on top of a river. The flooring was extremely slippery making it difficult to walk let alone dance. I was recovering from a septic leg wound I got during shooting a few weeks earlier and a high fever. But all of this paled in comparison to having to be careful of the few dozen snakes that had decided to make the set their temporary home! Can’t remember too many people sitting in between takes ( ha ha ha) funny now, terrifying then. FYI I don’t like snakes. We would occasionally see them swimming around in the water, yes, they swim!! Highlight was, at the end of the song suddenly Mani comes up with the idea that we should all jump into the water in the last shot!!! Perfect!!,” posted Bachchan.
We love hearing such anecdotes. What about you?!
