Actors Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan, who haven’t shared screen space together after Silsila (1981), were set to come back together in director Anees Bazmee’s Welcome Back, but Rekha has reportedly pulled out of the movie.
Silsila directed by Yash Chopra paired Rekha opposite Amitabh Bachchan. It also starred Jaya Bhaduri, Sanjeev Kumar and Shashi Kapoor.
“Neither actors had expressed any apprehensions about working together in Welcome Back. They had scenes together,” a source told a Mumbai tabloid.
Now, due to “clash of shooting dates”, Rekha won’t be in the film. She was to essay the role of an affluent fashionista, but her dates are now clashing with Indra Kumar’s film, Super Nani.
