Mumbai:�As Amitabh Bachchan's film �Besharam� completed 39 years of release on Thursday, the megastar took to his blog reminiscing his time spent with the producer and director of the film, late veteran actor-director Deven Verma.
Sharing his memories with the director, Big B shared that Deven was delightful company with life devoid of sadness and tribulation.
"Deven Verma... a fine colleague a wonderful human and a delightful company. His mode of our greeting would always be with a standard that we had established. 'This floor is made of cement concrete!', as we sank in the floor pretending that it was giving in," he posted.
"It was a laugh, a way of his life filled with never a moment of grief or sadness or trial or tribulation. It was infectious, it was all embracing and ever fun. It was a quality that one noticed with great rarity, it percolated about," the "Wazir" actor added.
The Padma Vibhushan awardee also shared that the "Angoor" actor was a favourite of late filmmakers Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Yash Chopra.
"He was a favourite of Hrishi da (Hrishikesh Mukherjee) and of Yash ji (Yash Chopra). They rarely thought of a film without him and we would love the great joy of knowing that he was there... ever.�
"Besharam" was Deven's first directorial venture which also featured actors Sharmila Tagore, Amjad Khan, A.K. Hangal, Iftekhar and Nirupa Roy. The film's music was composed by Kalyanji Anandji.(IANS)
