Saanand Verma recently donned the avatar of Amitabh Bachchan’s classic role of Shahenshah for his show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain. The actor says that the feeling was absolutely surreal. He says, “It was an awesome experience. Wearing that 15-kilo costume was ultimate. I felt like Shahenshah, I really felt like the king of TV because nobody has ever tried that kind of costume. It was so heavy. I inserted a lot of iron stones in my costume so that I got that bulky look because I have a thin body frame. I put a lot of different metals inside the costume. I was feeling like Shahenshah and Amitabh Bachchan.”
“Big B is truly larger than life. The kind of work he has done is jaw-dropping. Nobody can repeat the kind of feat he has achieved in his lifetime. He is getting stronger with each passing day. Even today, at this age, nobody can match his persona and knowledge. He is an unbelievable performer. He is truly a superstar of the millennium,” he says.
