    A visit to the famed Mehboob Studio made megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was shooting an ad film there, nostalgic. The actor went down the memory lane, and reminisce the "prolific" legendary filmmaker Mehboob Khan.

    The studio was built by Mehboob Khan in the year 1954. The actor praised the late filmmaker's love for cinema.

    "Never trained or knowledged himself (Mehboob Khan) in the art of filmmaking, was not educated enough to speak the English language, was a paltry seller of goods, I am told, and worked at odd jobs in the studios and because of the love of cinema became one of the most prolific makers," Big B wrote on his blog late night on Thursday.

    "His dynamic confidence knew no bounds. He accomplished that which many other learned did not," he added.

    Amitabh also mentioned his personal memories attached with the studio and says he has lost the "count of the number of films that I have shot there".

    "My first meeting with Sunil Dutt saheb, when I came for a screen test in 1968 through the courtesy of Nargisji, in the dubbing theatre, where he was dubbing for Padosan."

    "The studio, buzzing with excitement with several shootings, and the stars in all their glory drifting in and out. To be told of the stories of the greats that worked and spent most of their time inside - Dilip saheb, Nargisji, Sunil Dutt, Dev Anand...the list just goes on," he wrote.
