Silsila, directed by Yash Chopra, also starred Bachchan’s wife Jaya and Rekha, whose on-screen chemistry with the Piku star stands as one of Bollywood’s best ever.

The movie was a box-office disappointment but is now considered a classic.

The 73-year-old Te3n actor also reminisced his 1982 film Khuddar, which co-starred Parveen Babi, Vinod Mehra and Sanjeev Kumar.
