One of the sizzling on screen couples, Amitabha and Rekha, had so far avoided each other on several occasions since their movie ‘Silsila’.  It was a moment worth capturing when Big B went straight to Rekha’s seat and in an apparent gesture of reunion and friendship greeted her with a smile on his face. In return, Rekha also wished him warmly.

It was also a rare moment for Bollywood buffs and industry insiders when Rekha and Jaya Bachchan were seen exchanging pleasantries at the event.

The Bachchan family had been avoiding Rekha at all events for the last 33 years. But this time it was definitely a change as it was her ‘Silsila’ co-star who approached her first.

‘Big B’ and Rekha once shared a sizzling chemistry on and off the silver screen. Amitabh Bachchan's alleged romance with Rekha forms a part of Bollywood folklore. Their affair reportedly started on the sets of Do Anjane (1976), their first film together.

The last Bollywood project that they did together was Yash Chopra's 1981 entertainer ‘Silsila’ which also starred Jaya.

But since then, the duo who acted in films like "Namak Haraam", "Do Anjaane", "Muqaddar Ka Sikandar", "Mr. Natwarlal", "Suhaag" and "Khoon Pasina", have not worked together.

The fans of these two Bollywood icons would now be hoping that Amitabh-Rekha reunite and give a superb performance on screen in the days to come.
