Amitabh Bachchan has an acting prowess which is unmatched and none would doubt the fact! He is the Shehenshah of tinselville deservingly and time and again he has scorched the silver screen with his mastery. In his long career span, he has given us such euphoric moments, that we were just awed by his acting bounty. But when Amitji stepped into the shoes of a ‘drunk’ man, he took his expertise a notch higher.
Just a few days back we witnessed #Bachchanism when he was teaching all the vital difference between Scotch and Water. Hence, before we get to see Amitabh Bachchan’s drunk avatar in his upcoming with Dhanush in R.Balki’s Shamitabh, here are some of the best drunk performances of Senior Bachchan we absolutely love.
1.When he talked to the Mirror in style
Film: Amar Akbar Anthony
The scene is known for its comic sense, but we just couldn’t help but applaud Amitji’s performance in the sequence. It is one of the Epic Drunk scenes in the history of Indian Cinema and surely AB’s one of the finest show.
2.When he taught us about the two types of ‘keeda’
A pretty inebriated Amitabh Bachchan tells his friend the different types of ‘keedas’ and in turn we learn that he excels at delivering drunken scenes. In the same scene, he showcases his ability by doing the same lines in three different ways.
3.When he shows us “Daaru peene se liver kharab hota hai”
Film: Satte Pe Satta
Quirky and fun, the scene from ‘Satte pe Satta’ is known for its comic timing and Big B graciously tells us all, that ‘daaru peene se liver kharab hota hai’. Need reasons why you should quit drinking? Big B teaches us.
4.When he danced with Rekha in ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’
Film: Muqaddar Ka Sikander
Getting high on screen seems like a piece of cake for Big B. He very graciously danced with Rekha in shayarna andaaz, in Salaam-E-Ishq song in the film and we picked up some life lessons and dance skills from him.
5.When he was ‘High’ on Happiness
The song ‘Chal Mere Bhai’ from Naseeb is followed by some classic drunken drama offered to us by Amitabh Bachchan. A pretty tippler Johnny is being persuaded by his brother Sunny (Rishi Kapoor) to return home.
6.When he has khitpit with wife after drinking
Film: Do Anjaane
After being high, every man stars speaking gibberish and while doing so he may have some khitpit with family. Showing us that in Do Anjaane, Big B, puts his ‘drunk english’ mode on and creates a dramatic scene.
7.When he sent shivers down every spine
This spine-chilling and brilliant shot from film Sharabi, made us give standing ovation to Amitabh Bachchan. It was his best drunken avatar and for his outstanding portrayal in the film Sharabi, his fans applaud him even till now.
