Along with the photos and videos she penned a lengthy note.
She wrote, “It was a very happy and enjoyable time to have done ‘HERA PHERI.’ @amitabhbachchan Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna played crafty tricksters in the movie and I played a cunning female swindler. Director Prakash Mehra let the Three of us have a free hand at all the outrageously funny scenes. I had already done a lot of work with Vinod in films such as ‘PURAB AUR PASCHIM,’ ‘AAROP’, and ‘NEHLE PE DEHLA’ and with Amitabh in ‘ZAMEER.’”
“We had a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and the Three of us would work at suggestions and improvisations to make the scenes riotously funny especially in the scenes where Vinod is constantly trying to tone down Amitabh from being overly romantic to the heroine. My own favourite scene is where I am rattling off in Marathi and Vinod is trying to curb Amitabh’s zealous attempts to sit next to me. Please see and enjoy these scenes. #47YearsToHeraPheri.”
‘Hera Pheri,’ a comedy film was released in 1976. It was directed by Prakash Mehra and featured an ensemble cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Saira Banu, and Pran.
