Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a behind the scenes story from the sets of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 2007 film Eklavya - The Royal Guard. Apparently, Vidhu wanted Amitabh Bachchan to grow a real beard instead of using prosthetics.

However, owing to other commitments that required Big B to be clean-shaven, the latter was hesitant to oblige.
