Hrishikesh Mukherjee was one of those filmmakers who got everyone’s love. Had Hrishikesh Mukherjee been alive today, he would have been 100 years old. Yes, today is the 100th birth anniversary of Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Hrishikesh Mukherjee was born on September 30, 1922. People of cinema used to call him by the name of Rishi Da. Rishi Da is known for many great films like Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, Ashirwad, Bawarchi and Golmaal. But Rishi Da had a specialty that he used to test the artist after seeing him. Like a jeweler… tests a diamond.

Today we are sharing an anecdote related to Rishi Da, how he cast a new girl in his film, which got a Filmfare nomination for that film.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee took the risk by casting this actress

In 1971, a film by Hrishikesh Mukherjee was released, which was written by Gulzar. There were dozens of actors in this film, not one or two. The film was adorned by veteran actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Dilip Kumar, Naveen Nischal, Pran, Mala Sinha and Sasikala. The actress who played Rishi Da in the film was none other than Jaya Bhaduri, who has now become Mrs.

It was in this film that the audience saw actress Jaya Bhaduri on screen for the first time. Earlier, she had done a role in a film as a child artist, but this was her first film as an actress. If you have understood which film we are talking about then it is fine, otherwise we will reveal the secret of the story of such a legendary hero-heroine coming on screen together after a while.

Let us tell you that this was the period when heroines like Hema Malini and Mumtaz were on the silver screen. At such a time, Hrishikesh Mukherjee took the risk of bringing a new heroine to the screen, which was also very successful. That actress also got the nomination of the Filmfare Award for the same role.

Actually, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Gulzar were working on a story in which a school going girl is addicted to a film hero of that era. He sees Superman in that hero. He feels that his hero can do anything. That naive girl doesn’t know what is the difference between reel life and real life. In the end, the girl is cleverly made to realize the difference.

Jaya Bhaduri was stuck with the innocent image

Let’s take the curtain from Raj and tell that we are talking about the superhit film Guddi in 1971. When Hrishikesh Mukherjee selected Jaya Bhaduri for this film, her age would have been some 21-22 years. Jaya was supposed to play the character of a school going naive girl who was 5-6 years younger than her age in the film, which she played very well.

However, it is said that this role stuck on Jaya Bhaduri’s career in such a way that her innocent image remained in the hearts and minds of the directors and the audience for a long time. Later, Jaya Bhaduri also did some bold roles to get out of that image. Well, we return to the story of that 14-15 year old girl on whom this song was filmed even today. That song was – give us the power of the mind.

In this song, from the entry of Jaya Bhaduri to the bullying of opening one eye, the audience found it very realistic. Well, now you must have remembered that what was the reason for the dozens of stars coming on screen in this film, but if you are forgetting then we tell you. Actually Jaya Bhaduri is a fan of Dharmendra in this film. To get him out of Dharmendra’s craze and get out of real life and film world To explain the difference, actor Utpal Dutt does this trick. Big stars appear in cameo roles one after the other and Guddi understands the reality of life.
