Big B has dismissed the reports that he is teaming up with Rekha for Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) next film which is untitled yet. He said the reports aren’t true at all.
There were reports that Amitabh Bachchan is in talks to feature opposite Rekha in a film that will be directed by Aditya Chopra.
“No, I am not doing that (film). But if you know anybody there (at YRF), then suggest my name,” Big B told reporters. He was spotted at the launch of Just Dial search engine here.
“I also read it (that I will be working with Rekha in YRF’s next) but there is no truth to it,” he said.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha shared the screen spaces together in Silsila directed by Yash Chopra. The film is also starring Jaya Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor, and it came out in 1981 under the banner of Yash Raj Productions. Since then, the two haven’t worked together.
Meanwhile, the producer-director Anees Bazmee tried in vain to bring together the hit pair of the 1970s and 1980s on the screen again through his movie ‘Welcome Back’.
Bachchan and Rekha played opposite in movies like Do Anjaane , Namak Haraam, Khoon Pasina and Muqaddar Ka Sikander.
Big B is currently busy shooting for Bhootnath 2, a sequel to 2008 film Bhootnath. He will also appear in a special appearance in Sanjay Dutt Production’s Hasmukh Pighal Gaya.
