R Balki shares a hilarious anecdote about Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan is one of the actors who arrives on set on time and does his job like a thorough professional. Recently, while talking to Film Companion, R Balki revealed that the veteran actor once started yelling on the sets for some reason. Since Big B is someone who isn’t much of a shouter on the sets, everyone was stunned by his reaction.

Sharing details about the incident, the top director said: “Once Amit ji was on the set and he was screaming… He never screamed, he is the calmest man. Suddenly he started screaming. And everyone was stunned. We had never seen he yelled. I said, ‘Just a minute, something’s wrong here,’ so I went to his van. I said, ‘Everything okay? Food okay? Why are you yelling?'”
Balki continued: “He looked at me, didn’t answer, went back to his poker face. Again he said, ‘Call the guy!’ I said, “Amit ji, what’s the problem? What happened this morning?” He looks at me and says, ‘You stupid fool, I’m in character’.”
