Actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji went down memory lane on Thursday as their 2005 blockbuster Black completed 16 years. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, also starring Ayesha Kapur, Shernaz Patel, Dhritiman Chatterjee and Nandana Sen, revolved around the relationship between a blind and deaf girl and her teacher.
Amitabh Bachchan, who played the role of Debraj Sahai, the alcoholic teacher who later develops Alzheimer’s disease, called the movie “way ahead of its time”. Big B took to his Instagram handle and shared two photos from Black. He captioned the photos, “It has been 16 years…since Debraj Sahai. Black…a movie way ahead of its time. Every dialogue, every instance in the movie was so beautifully crafted, that it has engraved its existence in everyone’s heart, including mine. #16YearsOfBlack #RaniMukerji #SanjayLeelaBhansali @bhansaliproductions.”
