Sit tight on your seat as you take in this bit of juicy gossip. What hasn’t happened for more than three decades in Bollywood might now come to pass. Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha might work together in a film.
Anees Bazmee even confirms the news. According to Bazmee, they are considering Rekha for a role which will have a love angle between Nana and Anil’s character. Since Rekha is still considered a glamour icon, the makers of Welcome Back will try to revive her glam image on big screen.
“I am a huge fan of Rekhaji. I wanted to work with her. I feel since it's a comedy film, Rekhaji will do justice to her part as she has a superb comic timing,” Bazmee is quoted as saying.
However, a lot depends on if the actress is willing to be a part of the film or not. There are other veteran actresses also in the race, but it is too early to say anything, claims Bazmee, who is yet to meet Rekha to discuss the script.
If the team of Welcome Back indeed manages to bring both Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha in their film, the question remains will the two stars share same screen space.
Amitabh and Rekha were last seen in the movie Silsila (1981) -- a film on extramarital affair that also starred Amitabh’s real wife Jaya Bachchan.
