Hema Malini Movies: Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini’s movie ‘Bagbaan’ was a huge hit with the audience, but it greatly influenced the lives of the four actors who played the roles of the prodigal sons. The film tarnished the image of Aman Verma, Sameer Soni, Sahil Chadha and Nasir Khan among the general audience to such an extent that elders scolded them from time to time. Even today the audience could not forgive.

Aman Verma and Sahil Chadha talk about how their lives changed after the release of ‘Bagbaan’. Even today, he said, older people scold him for misbehaving with his parents in the film. According to media reports, Aman Verma says in a conversation, ‘Before the film Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thee I did shows like Khul Ja Sim Sim.

Aman Verma continues, ‘People still ask me, Aman ji, how did you become so worthless?’ Talking about spending time with Hema Malini on the sets, the actor says that it broke his heart every time he had to shout at Hema Malini’s character. He says, ‘After every such scene, I would go to him and apologise. She knew, this is my job. The worse I get, the better it is for the film.
Sahil also shared his memories associated with the film. He used to reach the set early to watch Amitabh Bachchan act. Hema Malini made her comeback with this film, while Amitabh Bachchan did KBC and ‘Mohabbatein’. Sahil said, he still faces abuse. (Photo Courtesy: Instagram @saahilchadha)
Says Sahil, ‘I go to many events and sometimes I am introduced as Amitabh Bachchan’s worthless son, but I take it as a compliment. My mother and sister were in Canada when the film was released. When people cursed their sons, they were very sad. Once when someone said, what a bad child he is, the mother said – my son is not like that. She must have come to my rescue. Let us tell you that ‘Baagbaag’ was made in 12 crore rupees, which earned approximately 43 crore rupees from the box office. (Photo Courtesy: Instagram @dreamgirlhemamalini)
