Chhaya praises Amitabh’s punctuality

Chhaya said, “It was so amazing working with Amit ji. He is so punctual. If the shoot was to start at 5 am he would be on set 15 minutes before only. However, I didn’t get much of a chance to interact with him because of the respect I have for him in my heart. Once, we spoke briefly when I told him about my mother, who is suffering from dementia and does not recognise anything, including me. I told him she just remembers three people, Sai Baba, Balasaheb Thackeray and Amitabh Bachchan.”

Chhaya calls Amitabh ‘macho man’

Recalling an incident, she added, “I did get one opportunity to interact with him on the sets when we were shooting for a scene and we had to sit on a bullock cart. I was very happy that I got a seat next to him but soon disappointed because someone called him to the front of the cart. After the shoot was over, I was trying to get off the cart and saw a hand appear to help me get down. It was Amit ji. For us he’s still the macho man he was in Don, we don’t realise that he is ageing too, which is sad.”
