There might not be one corner in the world where Amitabh Bachchan is not known. Big B is loved wherever he goes but this man is a phenomenon and we will tell you why. Khuda Gawah, a film starring Amitabh Bachchan and Sridevi was released in 1992.

Then President of Afghanistan- Najibullah Ahmadazi was a huge fan of the star. He was looking into the security and he made sure it was excellent. Big B was provided with half of the country’s Airforce for security. Khuda Gawah is one of the most Indian movies in Afghanistan.

Amitabh Bachchan mentioned about it in an interview in 2010.

“When we were discussing the script of Khuda Gawah, I said let us go to Afghanistan to shoot. We went to Mazar-e-Sharif to shoot the sequence of traditional Afghan spot of Buzkashi.”

“The President provided us excellent security when the shooting was on. Fighter Jet planes were keeping vigil in the sky and Army tanks were at the side of the sets. It just felt like a battle field,”

If this isn’t what we call being a humungous superstar, then we don’t know what is.
