Vinod Khanna was probably Amitabh Bachchan’s biggest rival when Bachchan was on his way to superstardom. As per the Bollywood norms, there can be just one superstar at a time and in the late ‘80s it was Amitabh Bachchan . But even the most loyal Bachchan fan would agree that had Khanna not left the film industry for years around that time, he might have ascended the throne.

Despite their famous rivalry, Khanna and Bachchan were close friends, and their films are proof. Together, they worked in ten films, and we have listed all of them for you.

Reshma aur Shera (1971)
