The striking couple of the 70s and 80s, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, are reportedly being lured into working together in Anees Bazmee’s sequel of ‘Welcome’ (2007).
The makers of ‘Welcome Back’ have already approached Bachchan to play the role of RDX, the character which was originally played by the late Feroz Khan. Meanwhile, Rekha has been offered to play a wealthy fashionista.
Talking to Mid-Day, Bazmee said, “We are considering Rekhaji for a role which will have love angle between Nana and Anil. But it is too early to talk about all this as nothing is decided and confirmed. As there are three-four veteran actresses that we are thinking of it all depends if they like it or not, their dates and money issues.”
Bazmee has not yet met Rekha or narrated the part to her. “I am a huge fan of Rekhaji. I wanted to work with her. I feel since it’s a comedy film, Rekhaji will do justice to her part as she has a superb comic timing,” he said.
If Bazmee convinces the two legendary stars to come together, ‘Welcome Back’ will be their first film since ‘Silsila’ (1981).
