Earlier it was Salman Khan's close bodyguard Sher Khan... And now it's turn of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's security guard who has donned grease paint...

For some time now, news was abuzz that Anurag Kashyap's short story in 'Bombay Talkies' revolved around an ardent fan of Big B and how he travels far and wide to meet his screen icon.

Now to maintain the authenticity, the filmmaker kept it real in the story. For, interestingly in his short film, not only Bachchan has played a significant role but also the security guard who mans the gate of the star's Juhu bungalow, Pratiksha.

A source said, "Anurag's story revolves around a guy who wants to meet Amitabh Bachchan, as he's a big fan of the star. He lands up outside Bachchan's house every day to try and catch a glimpse of the star. And while trying to get closer to the house, the guard at the gate and the fan manage to interact."

It seems Anurag did not want a professional actor to do this role. So he spoke to Bachchan and sought his permission to let him cast his real security guard in the film. Bachchan agreed, and as a result, the guard will now make his acting debut.

The film has been shot at various locations, including Pratiksha, which plays a crucial part in the story. Bachchan also allowed Anurag to shoot certain parts of the film inside his residence.

Producer Ashi Dua confirmed the news, saying, "Anurag was keen to keep everything around Pratiksha real. When we requested Mr Bachchan to allow his guard to play himself in the film too, he was happy with it."

It can be recalled for the film 'Bodyguard', Salman Khan's real-life bodyguard Sher Khan was given a chance to feature in a cameo role.

At the launch of the trailer of 'Bombay Talkies', Anurag had said, "The occasion to make this film is 100 years of cinema, but Bombay Talkies is mainly about the impact cinema has in our everyday lives and how it is part of an Indian fan's life."

'Bombay Talkies' is comprised of four short films by directors Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap. It releases on May 3.
