Not working with Rekha, says Big B
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has dismissed the reports that he will team up with Rekha for Yash Raj Films' (YRF) next untitled project, saying it's not true.
There were reports that the megastar is in talks to star 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 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 added.
Big B and Rekha were last seen together in Yash Chopra's directorial venture "Silsila". Made under YRF banner, the film, also starring Jaya Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor, came out in 1981. Since then, the two have not worked together.
Meanwhile, Anees Bazmee tried in vain to bring together the hit pair of the 1970s and 1980s on the screen again through "Welcome Back".
Rekha-Amitabh worked together in films like "Namak Haraam", "Do Anjaane", "Muqaddar Ka Sikander" and "Khoon Pasina".
AQmitabh is currently busy shooting for "Bhootnath 2". Besides, he will be seen in a special appearance in Sanjay Dutt Productions' "Hasmukh Pighal Gaya". IANS
