Mumbai: It is said that people are not able to use their full talent and potential. There must be some guide-guru who can bring out the full potential inside someone. Just as the credit for making Amitabh Bachchan a star goes to Prakash Mehra, similarly the credit for making Amitabh a dancer goes to Mehmood to a large extent. Few people would know that 51 years ago, comedian-actor-director-producer Mehmood did such a feat that Amitabh was shocked.

The film ‘Bombay to Goa’, released on 3 March 1972, was jointly produced by S. Ramanathan and Mehmood. Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha were also in this film. Released 51 years ago, this film was a tremendous hit at the box office and one of the songs of this film ‘Dekha Na Hi Re’ is heard even today. During the shooting of this song, Amitabh became very nervous.

What fear turned Dilip Kumar from Muslim to Hindu? Saira Banu was cheated and married for the second time, who was she?

Amitabh Bachchan had said that I will not be able to do Bhaijaan
Mehmood, who arrived as a guest on Shekhar Suman’s show ‘Movers and Shakers’, himself told an interesting story about the making of the song of the film ‘Bombay to Goa’. Mehmood had told, ‘The entire starcast of the film boarded the bus and left for Goa. The song ‘Dekha Na Hi Re’ was to be shot inside the bus and was to be shot on Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh was not able to dance on this song. When I reached the set, I was told that Amitabh has fever and has gone to rest in his room. When I went to the room to meet Amitabh, I saw that Amitabh was crying. On seeing me, he said, I will not dance. I will not be able to do what the master (choreographer) is telling, Bhaijaan.

Mehmood did special planning before shooting
After listening to this talk of Amitabh, I explained that ‘the person who can walk, can also dance. Take rest today and come tomorrow, see Inshallah all will be first class’. Then the next day before the shooting of the song, I told the master to take the first shot, even if the shot is bad, all the people in the bus should clap loudly. Then go ahead, take another shot..don’t get retake done..because the actor’s diet is praised for him’.

Even blew on Amitabh after reading Quran Sharif
Mehmood had further told that ‘I explained to everyone before the shooting. When he came from the make-up room, I recited Quran Sharif and also blew a little on him. That gave him some confidence, then he gave his shot which was very dirty. Amitabh’s steps were not matching with the lyrics of the song, yet according to my plan people clapped. The song progressed and then the lambu who came in the mood..to what did he dance’.
