Big B reveals the ‘Bhoothnath’ connect in ‘Agneepath’

Mumbai, May 9 (IANS) Amitabh Bachchan has mentioned a coincidence that ties his 1990 crime drama “Agneepath” with his 2008 horror-comedy “Bhoothnath” in an almost uncanny manner.

Bhoothnath was released on May 9, 12 years ago. Yet, a scene in “Agneepath”, filmed all those decades ago, bears a direct connection with the title of the horror film that would release years later.

“12 years of BHOOTNATH .. kids still call me Bhoothnath Uncle .. but someone just discovered something amazing .. in AGNEEPATH my film there is a shot of me entering the prison and shooting dead one of the prisoners .. on the wall of the prison cell was written in chalk the word ‘Bhootnath' (in Hindi) .. Agneepath was made years before .. how did this happen .. if you have a dvd or on net go to the scene and watch .. Incidentally that was my first shot for Agneepath !” the actor wrote.

Excited fans replied to his tweet sharing a video clip of the particvular scene in “Agneepath. Fans also shared congratulatory messages for the actor.
