History was made on the sets of Dance India Dance on Zee TV when Big B and Mithun Da caught up with each other after a hiatus of almost 20 years. The duo had several beautiful memories to choose from and got very nostalgic as they shared anecdotes with the audience from the good old times - be it their bonding on the sets of the blockbuster Agneepath or the time when Mithun Da had slashed his chest and offered his blood to Goddess kali praying for Bachchan's speedy recovery post his much-talked-about 'Coolie' accident.
A source on the sets revealed that the three mentors - Remo D'souza, Terence Lewis and Geeta Kapur had choreographed some out-of-this-world dance acts to the evergreen songs from Amitabh Bachchan's films to delight the superstar. Master Geeta Kapur put together a thrilling "aerial cube" act with her talented contestants Binny Sharma, Kishore and Dharmesh "Sir" to the theme song of the film 'Black'.
The act beautifully captures the struggle of a blind girl to dance and how she finally thrilled the audience with a spectacular act mid-air hanging from a cube. Binny Sharma is said to have been blindfolded for this daring, inspiring act. Terence Lewis's interpretation of the song Main Yahan Tu Wahan from Baghban where he had two passionate lovers dying to break down a wall separating the two of them left the Big B choked and speechless. His Bhojpuri Salsa to Dilip Kumar's evergreen Nain Ladh Jai Be stumped Big B who said, "Wow! I've never seen anything so innovative, so inventive."
The audience was left begging for more when Big B gave in to their demand and sang Mere Angne Mein Tumhara Kya kaam Hai and went on to recite a couplet from his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poem 'Agneepath'. Adding to the frenzy surrounding Big B's presence on the sets was the dress code of the mentors for the episode. While Terence Lewis turned up bearing Big B's trademark Deewar look, Master Remo aped Bachchan's killer look from the film Kaante.
The series of spectacular performances to the songs from Bachchan's films in a "Amitabh Bachchan special" episode of Dance India Dance was aired on Friday, 29th January at 20:00 hours
