Back in 2013, Versatile actor, Amitabh Bachchan revealed a story from the shoot of his film Pukar (1983) on his blog. The anecdote is about Kareena Kapoor getting unhappy on seeing Sr. Bachchan hitting her dad Randhir Kapoor while filming an action sequence in Pukar. Later Mr. Bachchan washed the feet of a crying Kareena Kapoor Khan and tried to convince her that he is not ‘evil’.
Beginning his write-up, Amitabh Bachchan revealed that young Kareena was ‘very disturbed’ when she saw him beating up her father Randhir Kapoor for an action scene. She held tightly on to her father Randhir to ‘protect’ him.
He wrote, “I was narrating to her (Kareena), one such moment when we were shooting for Pukar in Goa and how she looked with her cute summer hat with little pink flowers on them, and how troubled she had been when during an action sequence I was hitting her father. She, in her innocence, had run on to the set in the outdoors and clung to her father to protect him from this ‘evil’ man who was beating him up.”
Amitabh then also wrote about how Kareena got comfortable with him a little after he washed her feet. He penned, “In tears and most worried, she was relentless and very disturbed. She soiled her pretty little feet in the sand and to settle her down I had asked for some water and washed her tiny feet clean, to make her realize that this act was not for real but an enactment. I think after the feet washing, her opinion seemed to have changed about me. I wasn’t that ‘evil’ after all! She still remembers that moment.”
In 2019, the veteran actor also shared a picture of crying Kareena on the sets of Pukar. In the photo, Amitabh is seen attending to Kareena’s injured foot. He wrote, “Guess who…? That be Kareena Kapoor on the sets of PUKAR shooting in Goa… had come with dad Randhir… hurt her foot… and yours truly putting medication and taping it.”
Kareena Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have shared screen space in films such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Satyagraha, and Dev. The actress also made her Bollywood debut with his son, Abhishek Bachchan in the film Refugee (2000).
