When Prahlad Chacha of ‘Panchayat’ reached Amitabh Bachchan’s house wearing slippers, Big B fed him sesame seeds

Actor Faizal Malik dominates social media these days. The character of ‘Prahlad Chacha’ played by him in the popular web series ‘Panchayat’ has become one of the favorite characters of the people. In the second season of the show, his acting brought tears to the eyes of every viewer watching the show.

Faizal Malik, who reached the stage in Sahitya Aaj Tak 2022, told many funny stories from the days of fresh stardom and struggle in his career. Faisal’s talk at Lallantop Adda in the event changed the atmosphere. He told a funny story of his first meeting with Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan.

Arrived at Amitabh’s house wearing slippers
Faizal told that Anurag Kashyap asked him to walk for a meeting. He was just sitting at his house wearing slippers etc. and when Anurag asked him to walk, he just got up and left. But when the car moved towards Amitabh’s house, he told Anurag that ‘Sir, why didn’t you tell me earlier’.

Faizal Malik told that food keeps coming to Amitabh Bachchan’s house continuously. When he told Bachchan sahab that he himself was from Allahabad, he said, ‘Will you eat til ke laddoos?’ Faizal further told that he was hopeful that Amitabh Bachchan, now 80 years old, would be able to eat sesame laddoos and his teeth must have become weak. But sitting in front of him, Bachchan sahib first ate two laddoos himself. Faizal told that seeing this, he felt ‘this man is young, he is lying’.

Bachchan’s memory surprised
Regarding Amitabh’s keen eyesight and sharp memory, Faizal told that a writer was listening to him by reading the script and he continuously sat in the same pose, listening carefully. Faizal felt that as soon as the narration was over, perhaps Amitabh would be the first to ask him questions. But at the end of the narration, he turned to the boy who was reading the script and said, ‘You made a mistake on page number 62’. Faizal said that Bachchan sahab had heard the script at the same time but he had ‘remembered the entire script, remembered each word’.

Faizal said that he did not get work in the project for which he had reached Amitabh’s house with Anurag Kashyap. But he was surprised to see the behavior of such a senior artist as a human being.
