Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor is hopeful that the science and logic-defying medical miracle seen in 'Amar Akbar Anthony' of three people donating blood directly to a person will become a reality soon

They say 'hope springs eternal'. Well, this adage is certainly true for 'believer' Rishi Kapoor.

The Bollywood veteran hasn't given up hope of legendary director Manmohan Desai being seen as a science-fiction director and well ahead of his times.

Somebody tagged him while tweeting about a medical miracle that had taken place in real life.

A 'Satish Gundawar' posted on the micro-blogging site, "It's not only in AAA miracle happened It happened in Indian Military Soldier lost memory in accident regains in another accident."

This prompted Rishi Kapoor to shout out to all Manmohan Desai detractors (Nirupa Roy gains back her eyesight after hitting her head in the film). The actor then went into nostalgic mood and recollected his 1977 film 'Amar Akbar Anthony' (AAA) and the first scene about blood transfusion.

The first scene of AAA has Nirupa Roy receiving blood from three 'random' people -- Vinod Khanna (Amar), Rishi Kapoor (Akbar) and Amitabh Bachchan (Anthony). What film watchers had found even more unbelievable than the coincidence of the three brothers unknowingly donating blood was the fact that the blood from the three donors was defying gravity and science travelling 'up' to the bottle without any machine and going into Nirupa Roy's blood stream directly.

The 63-year-old, who is known for his wit on social media, questioned all those who had laughed at Manmohan Desai for the the absurdity in the movie. He is confident that the miracle shown in 'AAA' will become a reality.

In May an American woman who was blind for more than 20 years regained her sight after falling and hitting her head at her Florida home. 70-year-old Mary Ann Franco gradually became blind after a car accident in 1993. After two decades spent in darkness, another accident and an operation later Mary recovered her sight. This had led Rishi Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh to praise the industry's 'farsightedness'.
