Megastar Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Kala Patthar‘ has completed 37 years since its release in the Hindi film industry.

“And 37 years of ‘Kala Patthar’,” Big B reminisced on Tuesday on Twitter.

“Kala Patthar”, which released in 1979, tells the story about Vijay, a former navy officer, who when disowned by his family starts working at a coal mine. Trouble ensues when the mine is flooded with water and he is trapped along with several other miners.

Directed by Yash Chopra, the film, which also stars Shashi Kapoor Rakhee, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh and Parveen Babi, is based on the Chasnala mining disaster.
