Shaandar Shukrawar episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, saw celebrity couple Riteish Deshmukh and his wife Genelia D'souza gracing the show. Two had a gala time on the show with the megastar and show’s host Amitabh Bachchan, the couple was heard sharing some anecdotes from their married life. During the episode, Riteish Deshmukh recalled Big B’s iconic scene from the movie, Coolie No. 1. The young actor in particular spoke about ‘Breakfast asana’. This was followed by the senior actor spilling the beans about the same.
Praising Manmohan Desai for his vision, he called him a magician, though Big B was not in favour of this scene, the filmmaker assured it will be loved by the audience. And it happened. In the scene, the actor was supposed to prepare an Omelette following the instructions for the recipe narrated on the radio channel. Rati Agnihotri kidnapped by the actor, changes the channels with a health channel being played. Where the radio jockey is asking to stretch legs and Big B’s character follows the same. The actress again switches back to the food channel, thus leaving Big B wondering how he will break in the egg in such a position.
Hence, the filmmaker got into the picture a body double, who stretched his legs, on behalf of the actor. Big B continues, yet another person was made to sit behind the actor, who folded his legs and kept it on Big B’s back. Thus, compelling Ritesh to come up with a hilarious reply, he said, “Sir, pehli baar aisa hua hoga ki kisi ne aapko taang di”
Amitabh Bachchan continued to praise the director for a scene from Amar Akbar Anthony, where three onscreen brothers Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan are shown donating blood to their mother. The scene had one blood bank having three chords connected to these actors with another end having a single cord transfusion blood in their mother’s body.
