So, is Rekha really interested in doing a film that also co-stars her alleged ex-flame? Well, the reports suggest that the diva has agreed to the movie, but is yet to sign on the dotted line. Welcome Back -- a sequel to the hit Welcome (2008) -- has already gone on the floors with John Abraham and Shruti Haasan on board. Amitabh Bachchan will reportedly reprise the role of RDX, played by Feroz Khan in the original, while Rekha’s character is of a wealthy fashionista.
It’s learnt that director Anees Bazmee will meet Big B and Rekha separately to discuss their roles after he finishes the first schedule of the movie.
“I want to work with Amitabh and Rekhaji. She has said yes to the role but I still have to meet her and discuss it,” Anees tells a tabloid.
Both Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha haven’t signed the film yet. The two actors have worked together in movies like Muqaddar Ka Sikander (1978), Mr Natwarlal (1979), Suhaag (1979) and Silsila (1981). Post Silsila they were never seen together on big screen. Their pairing is considered to be the most iconic in Bollywood.
Recently, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha were clicked on the same flight. The photo has gone viral (see it here).
