Ever wondered why Bbuddah – Hoga Terra Baap is spelt the way it is? Well, numerology, of course! And who exactly in the unit is so inclined towards numerology? There are actually two of them – writer-director Puri Jagannath and hero Amitabh Bachchan. In normal circumstances, the film, co-starring Hema Malini, Raveena Tandon, Sonu Sood, Sonal Chauhan and Charmi, should have been spelt as Buddha – Hoga Tera Baap. But the extra ‘b’ in the first word and the extra ‘r’ in the third are thanks to the numerology angle.
Both, Puri and Amitabh felt, the film should be spelt that way and so, co-producers (with AB Corp) Viacom 18 Pictures readily agreed. Incidentally, “Buddha hoga tera baap” is the constant refrain of Amitabh Bachchan in the film. Goes without saying, he plays the buddha in the film.
