|Controversial Past||In 1985, during the shoot of "Zabaradast," the legendary director Nasir Hussain was shooting an action scene with Amrish Puri and Aamir Khan was in charge of action continuity. Aamir checked the basic details and once everything was set, he gave his instructions to Amrish Puri with his hands. However, Amrish Puri was so much engrossed in the scene that he kept forgetting the continuity. Aamir, being a perfectionist, kept reminding him and after few reminders, all of a sudden Amrish Puri lost his cool. Amrish Puri started screaming at Aamir in front of the whole unit and there was a pin-drop silence on the set. Amir got scared and kept his head down without uttering a single word. Finally, Nasir Hussain mildly intervened to say that Aamir is just doing his job. It’s at that time Amrish Puri came back to his senses and apologized to Aamir and appreciated his style and detailing.|
