They were slated to work together in a movie along with Vidya Balan named “Badla”; but it never got made.

Also; due to the fact that Amitabh was the biggest superstar of Indian cinema and Shah along with Om Puri was one of the most well-known in the alternative “art” circuit. Could have been date issues and the fact that directors/producers probably never thought of casting them together.

Here’s a special appearance scene from Hero Hiralal!
