Bollywood Actress Rekha rejects offer to work with Amitabh Bachchan
Bollywood Actress Rekha, who debuted as a heroine in the successful Kannada film Goa Dalli CID 999 opposite Rajkumar in 1969, has reportedly turned down an offer to work with Amitabh Bachchan. The two were last together in Yash Chopra’s 1981 film Silsila.
According to reports, filmmaker Anees Bazmi had his heart set on pairing the two stars in his film Welcome Back. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala and Anees created ripples when they revealed that they had approached Big B and Rekha to be a part of the film. While Amitabh is said to have signed, Rekha has, according to sources, turned it down as the dates clash with Indra Kumar’s film, Super Nani.
Rekha plays Sharman Joshi’s grandmother in Super Nani, which is a heartening tale about a woman trying to find respect as a senior citizen. The film also stars Anupam Kher and Randhir Kapoor.
