When Amin Sayani turned down Amitabh Bachchan!

Wed, Jun 08, 2016, 05:53 PM
Remember Amin Sayani of Binaca Gitmala fame? Amin Sayani of Radio Ceylon was a presenter of the popular Binaca Gitmala in the 60s and 70s when the people would put their ears to the radios all over India.

Now Amin comes from the past to reveal an anecdote concerning Big B. Amitabh Bachchan used to make rounds of the Radio Ceylon office (in Mumbai) wanting a job as a presenter. At the time the Binaca Gitmala presenter's job was considered the best job in the world.

Amin Sayani did not oblige Amitabh Bachchan on the grounds that he did not ask for an appointment so an audition test could be conducted for him.

Amitabh was not one to give up. He did the rounds of Radio Ceylon office several times. But he was not subjected to an audition test because Amin was a busy man then.

Had the test been conducted for Amitabh, Amin said today that he would have lost his job to a better presenter. Also, Bollywood would have a missed superstar. In the event, the missed chance gave the best opportunity to Big B.
