Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhootnath completes 12 years today. Interestingly he mentioned a coincidence that ties the knot of the film with his 1990 crime drama, Agneepath, in a most uncanny manner. Bhootnath was released on May 9, 2008, and Agneepath was filmed decades ago in the year 1990, and both the films have a direct connection with each other.
