Rakhi Sawant said Amitabh Bacchan always copied Dilip Kumar.

Rakhi Sawant said Amitabh Bacchan always copied Dilip Kumar.

Rakhi Sawant had given an interview in Times of India on 21st September, 2010. Among other questions when she was asked about films that she had seen this year, she referred the name of Raavan. She liked the performance of Abhishek Bacchan in the film. And then she said that Amitabh Bacchan should learn from Abhishek Bacchan how to act.

The next comment was very bold in nature. She said that for his entire career, Amitabh Bacchan never had any acting style of his own. He always and only copied the style of acting of Tragedy King Dilip Kumar. Amitabh Bacchan had recently won his 3rd National award for the performance in the film Paa, and a comment like copying Dilip Kumar would have raised eyebrows in the minds of his huge fanbase all over the world.

Very significantly Dilip Kumar and Amitabh were actors of two different generations. Dilip Kumar started his career in 1944 with Jowar Bhatta, where as Amitabh started his career with the film Satwa Hindustani in 1969. In the mid-70s, Amitabh carried across his image of angry young man and directors and producers did cast him in roles suiting that image.

Dilip Kumar acted in different types of roles for more than 60 years, but made his mark in tragic-oriented roles where his soft tune of dialogue throwing had created a grammer of acting in bollywood films. But before Rakhi Sawant no one had commented that Amitabh had copied Dilip Kumar although his career.

Rakhi Sawant also said that she hated actresses who used Salman Khan for success in bollywood and left him. Her indication was towards Katrina Kaif after she broke up with Salman Khan. She did not see Peepli Live, so could not comment on the film. She also said that she was very music-minded and whenever she felt good she danced for the audience. The viewers can judge the significance of her comments.
