The makers of the upcoming film Welcome Back are likely to rop in superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, who were last seen together on the silver screen in Silsila.
If all goes according to makers’ plan, the two will be seen sharing screen space together.
Reportedly, Amitabh was offered the role of RDX, which was played by late actor Feroz Khan in Welcome, while Rekha was apparently approached to portray a wealthy fashionista in the movie.
Insiders from Firoz Nadiadwala’s production reveal that Rekha has verbally said yes to the film but it yet to sign the contract. Bazmee says after wrapping up the first schedule of the film, he will meet Amitabh and Rekha in person to discuss their roles.
“I want to work with Amitabhji and Rekhaji. She has said yes to the role but I still have to meet her and discuss it. I haven’t met them yet. Rekhaji is a fine actress and I always wanted to work with her. But let’s see how it goes once I meet her. We haven’t signed either of them yet.” said the director.
Apparently, Rekha and Big B’s on-screen chemistry has always stood out, including in movies like Muqaddar Ka Sikander, Anjaane, Suhaag, Mr Natwarlal and Silsila.
