What happens when a legend meets another legend? During an episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, host Amitabh Bachchan recalled the time he met boxing legend, Muhammed Ali. A celebrity guest contestant, boxing world champion Nikhat Zareen revealed how the latter inspired her journey as a boxer.
This compelled the veteran actor to narrate an intriguing anecdote that not many fans might know about. Amitabh Bachchan recalled the time he met Muhammed Ali in Beverly Hills to make a film with him. ”I have met him once at his house in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills. Famous Producer-director Prakash Mehra ji wanted to make a film with Muhammad Ali and me and for that, we met at his house,”

Unfortunately, the idea of the movie never really came to fruition.

I have a photo of him where he is just posing for a punch on my face. What a wonderful human being,” the veteran actor concluded.
