Not really surprising but guess who’ll be making a cameo in Akshay Kumar’s Padman? Oh yes, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has stepped in to play a cameo in the Film, helmed by R Balki. Perhaps after reading the name Balki, you folks might have realised why it’s not surprising for us. We’ve known this for a while now that the director always casts Big B to play a pivotal character in all his films. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the protagonist or even the supporting lead but he always invites the actor to play a character in his films. How did we find out about this? Well, the actor himself tweeted the same through his handle as he said, “I work tomorrow… A shoot for R. Balki for the film he does with Akshay Kumar. A special appearance for a few minutes.” Isn’t he the best?
Bachchan has always made special appearance in all of Blaki’s films. Now the whole lucky charm craze is followed by a lot of filmmakers in Bollywood. Take Karan Johar for example. Earlier, he had Kajol as his lucky mascot and now he has Alia Bhatt. Irrespective, there’s always one actor a filmmaker is comfortable is and wants to make him/her part of all their ventures. Similarly, thanks to the rapport shared between Amitabh and Balki, the director always makes sure the senior actor makes a small appearance if nothing.

Produced by Twinkle Khanna, the film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles. We must say though, not Akshay or Shah Rukh but Mr Bachchan is the busiest actor in town. He is always on the go, either for promotions, shoots, brand endorsements and so on. Earlier he posted pictures of himself wearing a turban and sparked speculation of Thugs of Hindostan’s first look. However, he later clarified the same by saying, “It be for an advertisement that I worked on yesterday with the affable Imtiaz Ali, director of repute, for one of the products that I endorse,” he posted.
So you see, the actor always has a lot in plate. Perhaps even more than Akshay, who is known to take up several projects at once. It would be interesting to see Akshay and Amitabh work together once again. Are you excited for this alliance? Tell us in the comments box below.
