As soon as he posted, fans chimed in the comment section.

One of the users wrote, “My childhood fantasy film sir! Loved it.”

Another commented, “Priceless picture #oldisgold.”

Ajooba directed and produced by Shashi Kapoor was also co-directed by Soviet filmmaker Gennady Vasilyev and starred Amitabh, Amrish Puri, Rishi Kapoor, and Dimple Kapadia, among others.

Loosely based on Arabic folklore, the film had Amitabh portraying the role of Ajooba, who is always willing to help the people of the fictional kingdom, Baharistan.

Meanwhile, Amitabh was recently seen in the action thriller film Ganapath: A Hero is Born alongside Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon.

Megastars of Indian cinema Rajinikanth and Amitabh Bachchan are all set to reunite after 33 long years in the upcoming film Thalaivar 170. The actors wrapped up the Mumbai schedule of the film.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter) Lyca Productions shared a picture from the sets of the film and announced the schedule wrap.

In the picture, Amitabh could be seen sitting on a chair looking at the mobile screen with a bandage on his hand. The ‘Robot’ actor, on the other hand, is seen standing close to him and looking at the screen. Thalaivar 170 is being directed by TJ Gnanavel.

Ritika Singh, Manju Warrier, Tushara Vijayan, Rana Daggubati, and Fahadh Faasil have also been cast as extras. Rajinikanth is expected to play a retired police officer in the film.

Apart from that, he also has sci-fi action thriller film Kalki 2898 AD, and a courtroom drama film Section 84 in his kitty.
