Here’s what Dharmendra said to a fan who called his co-star and friend, Amitabh Bachchan, the ‘weakest link’ in the movie Chupke Chupke.
Veteran actor Dharmendra responded to a fan on Twitter who claimed that Amitabh Bachchan was the “weakest link” in the 1975 movie Chupke Chupke.
The fan, who also said that Amitabh’s acting in Sholay wasn’t better than Dharmendra’s, received love in return from the Yamla Pagla Deewana star..
The fan had originally reacted to a critic who said that Chupke Chupke was their favorite film because ‘Bachchan is so nuanced and natural — so perfect’ in it.
#ChupkeChupke was a #Dharmendra film, he chewed it!
And in #Sholay in no way Amitabh was better than Dharmendra, they were at best equal!
Stop running down @aapkadharam for someone else’s PR!” Dharmendra wrote in his reply, “So Sweet.
Love you Ajay.”.
This fake adulation is laughable!#ChupkeChupke was a #Dharmendra film, he chewed it!

However, Dharmendra and Bachchan remain good friends.
Wish you all the best.”.
The lyricist recently revealed that Dharmendra had rejected the film Zanjeer and that Bachchan was the last choice for the movie.
The script was written for Dharmendra ji but for some reason he later refused to work on it.”.
