“During the shooting of ‘Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge’, at one point the motorcycle splits into two and comes together again. For this to happen, we discovered a fork road, ideal for our requirement and we attached the side car to the trolley camera. Amitabh had to move ahead and then reverse through the foliage of trees. In this crucial shot, he was explained the placing of the camera and the music portion when he should join back. 
Look at the timing of the man, in the very first take he was able to accommodate all four – the music note, the camera, the vehicle and the most important his expression.” Stunned with #FaceOfTheWeek Amitabh Bachchan’s timing, flawless application of mind and his sense of technical proceedings, director Ramesh Sippy narrates this bravura incident in Amitabh Bachchan: The legend by Bhawana Somaaya.
