Anees Bazmee has approached Rekha to star in his upcoming film Welcome Back. This movie is a sequel to the hit comedy Welcome. Bollywood’s on-screen couple of the century Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha might reunite on screen for this film.
Rekha reportedly gave a nod to Anees Bazmee and he is yet to approach Big B for the movie. “I always had the desire to work with Amitabh and Rekha. I have told her about the film and she has said yes to the part but the formalities are still to be completed. I will meet her soon and then we will have a word on it. Amitabh would be reprising the role of RDX which was performed by Feroz Khan in the original and Rekha’s role would be that of a high profile socialite,” said the director.
What made them let go of their differences is the question… Nevertheless, we’ll see them together on screen after a gap of 33 years if they act together in Welcome Back.
Meanwhile, the veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, who is turning 71 this Friday, has started shooting for the sequel of his film Bhootnath. This film is titled Bhootnath 2.
Big B had a mini-birthday-celebration of sorts on the sets of his quiz show recently and he was gifted a ‘bel-gadi’ by one of the contestants. Also, he met a 100 year old woman who is the mother of one of the contestants. This aged woman is an alzheimer’s patient who does not remember anything except Amitabh Bachchan and his movies… Touching…
