Director Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan, which featured Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin, Krushna Abhishek and Prachi Desai in key roles, is celebrating 8 years of release today. On this special occasion, Ajay Devgn posted BTS pics with director and costar Abhishek along with Amitabh Bachchan, who made a special appearance in the title track. He captioned the pics, “When the Bachchans speak, I listen(especially Amitji)”. The Guru actor was quick to reply suggesting him for the second part as he wrote, “Round 2, AJ. I’m ready!!!” Well, definitely we also want Bol Bachchan 2 to make us laugh and tickle.

In a recent interview with journalist Rajeev Masand, Abhishek recalled how he was not able to get a perfect scene in Bol Bachchan and later feared that Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty would replace him in the film.
Talking about that incident, AB Junior said, “I remember, Rohit (Shetty) and Ajay (Devgn), after about a week into the shoot, we were shooting in Jaipur, they said, ‘Look we need to talk,’ because we weren’t getting that one scene. And I panicked, I said, ‘Oh god, these guys are going to replace me in the film,’ because I wasn’t able to get it. You could see at some point of time there was a bit of polite frustration creeping in on the unit’s side. And I remember, Rohit sat me down, we went up to Ajay’s room in the hotel, and he also sat me down, and said, “Look we need to rehearse because this is not what I want”. So, I said, “Okay, if you will explain to me, I will work on it.” He said, “Look I get your sense of humour and your comic timing is very sarcastic, it’s very deadpan”. So he said, “The energy of your comedy is very low, and it’s brilliant. But, my film’s energy is up here. It’s more slapstick. If you are not going to be at this level and you are going to perform low, you will be the odd one out and people are going to say you are not doing a good job. This is the world of Rohit Shetty Films and you have to come into that world, otherwise, it’s not going to work.”
