Actor-filmmaker Tinnu Anand, in a recent interview, opened up about how he struggled to make his directorial debut, the 1979 film ‘Duniya Meri Jeb Mein’, even though he had Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, two of the biggest stars then on board. Tinnu said that Rishi Kapoor refused to work with Big B a day after saying yes to the film. Speaking to ETimes, he shared, ‘My brother Bittu was a producer and we were not financially secure to make a film like Duniya Meri Jeb Mein. So, we had to listen to the whims and fancies of the actors. Like when I told Rishi Kapoor that I was going to narrate the story to Amitabh Bachchan, he was very happy. That night he went to a party of the film Zinda Dil and when his cameraman-director Sudarshan Nag asked him what was he feeling so happy about, he told him that the next day he and Amitabh would sign on the dotted line to act in Tinnu’s film.’ The actor-filmmaker added that Nag’s comment changed Rishi’s mind and he told the makers he would do the film only if Bachchan was replaced.
