Mahaan (meaning "great" or "famous" in Hindi) is a 1983 Hindi film produced by Satyanarayana and directed by S. Ramanathan. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan in a triple role alongside Waheeda Rehman, Parveen Babi, Zeenat Aman, Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Aruna Irani, Sujit Kumar and Shakti Kapoor . The music is by R.D. Burman.
This movie is a remake of hit Kannada movie "Shankar Guru" starring Dr. Rajkumar. Amitabh Bachchan was playing a triple role in the film after playing double roles in several of his earlier films. The concept of a 'triple role' was unusual.
The song 'Pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli' which featured in the movie was also popular. Amitabh plays all the three characters differently which proves his versatility. The film did not do well Amitabh Bachchan and Amjad Khan's movie.
