In a chat with Neha Dhupia on her podcast, Rishi Kapoor recalled how he got the role in Amar Akbar Anthony.

He was shooting for Laila Majnu in Bikaner, when he got a lightning call from filmmaker Manmohan Desai.

“There were no television in the rooms, no telephones in the room, nothing. So after pack up, at about 7 pm we used to meet in the billiard room. It was one of those evenings when someone came running from the reception saying — Rishi Kapoor saab ka lightning call aaya hai. Now, lightening calls those days was something to worry about. Manmohan said, ‘I’m making a film called Amar Akbar Anthony and I want you to play Akbar in that film. I was like ‘but sir, how can I play my grandfather?’ I thought he was making a film with Amar, purane zamane ka basuri bajanewala and make Akbar Mughal-e-azam wala and Cleopatra wala Anthony!”
