MUMBAI:Producer Firoz Nadiadwala and director Anees Bazmee tried their level best to get both Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha for their film Welcome Back – the sequel to their 2007 hit Welcome. But they failed.
Now there are fresh rumours that the two might be seen in a movie by Yash Raj Films. Let us hope if Aditya Chopra can pull off the trick and bring the former lovebirds together.
The Big B was reportedly asked to play the role of a don and Rekha was offered the role of a wealthy fashionista. Amitabh was ready, but the sultry siren turned down the offer, saying she was doing another film Super Nani.
Interestingly, it was Yash Raj Films’ Silsila in 1981 that saw Rekha and Amitabh share screen space together for the last time.
