As Amitabh Bachchan's film "Besharam" completed 39 years of release on Thursday, the megastar took to his blog reminiscing his time spent with the producer and director of the film, late veteran actor-director Deven Verma.

Sharing his memories with the director, Big B shared that Deven was delightful company with life devoid of sadness and tribulation.

"Deven Verma... a fine colleague a wonderful human and a delightful company. His mode of our greeting would always be with a standard that we had established. 'This floor is made of cement concrete!', as we sank in the floor pretending that it was giving in," he posted.

"It was a laugh, a way of his life filled with never a moment of grief or sadness or trial or tribulation. It was infectious, it was all embracing and ever fun. It was a quality that one noticed with great rarity, it percolated about," the "Wazir" actor added.

The Padma Vibhushan awardee also shared that the "Angoor" actor was a favourite of late filmmakers Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Yash Raj Chopra.

"He was a favourite of Hrishi da (Hrishikesh Mukherjee) and of Yash ji (Yash Chopra). They rarely thought of a film without him and we would love the great joy of knowing that he was there... ever."

"Besharam" was Deven's first directorial venture which also featured actors Sharmila Tagore, Amjad Khan, A.K. Hangal, Iftekhar and Nirupa Roy. The film's music was composed by Kalyanji Anandji.
