Anjan Srivastava, an actor well known for Wagle Ki Duniya, also worked as a banker between roles in movies and television programs. The chairman of her bank requested her to schedule a meeting with Amitabh Bachchan while Shahenshah was being filmed, in which Anjan appeared in a cameo. Bachchan promised to meet the chairman in Delhi when he requested an appointment there. His home is in Mumbai’s Pratiksha neighborhood.
Anjan recalled that encounter and told Rajshree Unplugged that Bachchan put in a good word for him at the bank, making life easier for him. The actor claimed that he arrived to his branch a bit late on the day of the meeting because he believed his work was over because the meeting had already been scheduled. But when he got to his office, he saw that everyone was in a panic since Bachchan wouldn’t go down and accept the meeting without Anjaan being present as well.
Amitabh Bachchan informed the meeting’s chairman that Anjan Srivastava was finding it challenging to combine his two careers as an actor and a banker. “He informed the chairman that Anjan was employed. I’ve worked in Calcutta as well. I wish him well because it is challenging to hold down a job and work in the sector. All he had to say was that. Does he have adequate vacation time, the chairman inquired when the manager emerged from the office.
When Amitabh Bachchan’s business obtained some loans from Anjan Srivastava’s bank, ABCL was subsequently connected to the bank. Amitabh experienced hardship as the company filed for bankruptcy. Amitabh experienced financial success following KBC and a few successful movies in the early 2000s.
Amitji was in a horrible situation at the time since a massive revolt was taking place against him. I visited the Toofan sets in Filmistan to see how he was doing. There was a sizable anti-Amit Ji protest taking place in Kolkata at the time. While posters were being pulled down, Amit ji was visibly upset. When I arrived, I questioned him, “Bhaisahab kaise hai?” How are you, Brother? and all he said was, “Theek hun” (I’m OK).
There was nobody to see how he was doing. We are aware that Allahabad’s writers began to criticize him. Without his knowledge, his father’s friends had started criticizing him. He was in a dire, terrible state. After that, he had an accident, and I frequently helped him. Amitji was a good man in my eyes.
Srivastav Aanjjan Regarding Amitabh Bachchan’s Insolvency
During this time, both their personal and professional relationships were thriving, with Aanjjan supporting Amitabh through some of his most trying circumstances. Before the well-known program Kaun Banega Crorepati, things, however, took a regrettable turn.
According to Aanjjan, Amitabh Bachchan had declared bankruptcy and his company ABCL was suffering enormous losses that he was unable to bear. He recovered, though, with Kaun Banega Crorepati. The fact that he had cut off all of his old pals shocked me the most. After joining KBC, he had undergone a transformation.
Aanjjan also revealed that after Kaun Banega Crorepati, their relationship’s dynamics changed and the warmth they had once had started to disappear. Aanjjan and his family used to receive invitations from Jaya Bachchan for Holi celebrations, but with time, she stopped doing so and their interactions declined.
He stated, “Amit ji and my connection became bad after KBC. Earlier, Jaya ji would call and invite me and my family to the Holi celebrations, but gradually the invitations and contact completely disappeared. My career was unaffected, but it stung nonetheless. In other cases, it was even my little group of theater friends’ fault for motivating Amitji to turn against me.
Aanjjan thanked Big B for his support and the special times they shared with him despite the shift in their relationship. Even if the warmth between them seems to have waned over the years, Aanjjan has held onto the precious memories they once shared.
