MUMBAI: Bollywood star Shekhar Suman has been a well-known figure in the entertainment industry for more than 4 decades. He has captivated audiences in almost every form of entertainment, from television to films. Shekhar Suman last appeared in Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, recently disclosed that Bachchan was called by the producers as a "constipated actor."

Suman remembered hearing in one of Bachchan's interviews that the actor said his first 13–15 films were box office failures.

In an interview with the popular entertainment portal, Suman revealed directors once called Amitabh Bachchan a ‘constipated actor’. “I was listening to one of Bachchan saab’s interviews, and he said that for the first few years, 13-14-15 of his films flopped. And directors, without naming him, would refer to him as ’that constipated actor,’” revealed the actor.

"I know it for a fact because Shashi Kapoor told me. He said that there were producers who couldn’t work without him later, but they were the ones who were saying, ‘Oh my God, this-constipated-looking actor has come again looking for work. Throw him out of the set; who allowed him inside?’" Suman added.

Further, Suman shared that Amitabh was rejected for having a bad voice in All India Radio when he auditioned to be a news reader. "How ironic is that? They said he didn’t have a good voice; some people said he’s too tall.”

Shekhar recalled the ‘worst’ story that Bachchan had told about his struggles. “He said that he came out of a studio and was sitting in his car, his parents were sitting behind him. One guy came and knocked on the window, and he abused in chaste Hindi and said, ‘Who the f**k asked you to come here? Have you seen your face? Go back to wherever you’ve come from’. Can you imagine?”
