Hello Readers! Welcome back to Humor Nation. All Bollywood actors are full of ego and tantrums, but today we’re going to talk about the veteran actor Raaj Kumar who was very well known for his attitude and ego clashes with other actors. During his Bollywood journey, he insulted many actors and directors without any reason as he thought he was the king of Bollywood and ruled on them.
So today let’s check out some celebrities who got insulted by Raaj Kumar
1. Amitabh Bachchan
Once in Raj Kapoor’s party Raajkumar couldn’t handle his coat and was tired of carrying it around on his shoulders, then he saw Amitabh Bachchan in the party and called a waiter to deliver a message of his to Amitabh as soon as possible. Amitabh wasn’t a big star at that time and Raajkumar’s message to him was that ”Hey, I am tired of carrying my coat around, you are tall enough so can I hang my coat on you?”. Listening to Raajkumar’s message Amitabh couldn’t take it and left the party. We know that Amitabh wasn’t a superstar at that time, but insulting a guest at someone’s party wasn’t acceptable, what do you guys think? And also Amitabh Bachchan was wearing a fine suit, Raaj Kumar complimented him in his unique way, he said “Suit kaha se silwaya, hume bhi kuch parde silwane hai”.
2. Prakash Mehra
” Zanjeer” was a super hit movie in the year 1973 starring Amitabh Bachchan. But did you know who was the first choice of the movie? Raajkumar was the first choice of Prakash Mehra to play the lead role in the film. Prakash Mehra went to Raajkumar with the script, after reading the script Raajkumar said that he liked the script a lot and wished Prakash’s face was also as good as the script. He rejected the role because he didn’t like the director’s face. How mean that was, wasn’t it?
One good thing that happened due to Raajkumar’s rejection was that we got our very own superstar Amitabh Bachchan. This movie made him a big star in just a night. All thanks to Raajkumar.
