After 3 decades, Rekha pairs up with Amitabh in ‘Shamitabh’

After a long time, the dynamic pair of Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in R. Balki’s ‘Shamitabh’. They were last seen in Yash Chopra’s romantic drama ‘Silsila’ in 1981. Big B’s look in the film was unveiled few months back. The ‘Ranjhanaa’ actor Dhanush took to twitter to share his happiness for sharing screen space with evergreen beauty Rekha.  

His tweet reads, "LOOK whom I'm sharing screen space with in shamitabh. The one and only REKHA JI !!! #beautyforever".

‘Shamitabh’ stars Dhanush, Akshara Haasan and Amitabh Bachchan in lead and Rekha also has an important role. It is not yet known whether she will be paired opposite Amitabh or not.

"Rekhaji has shot for a few sequences for R Balki’s next film. Although we aren’t sure whether she will be finally seen with Mr Bachchan or not, it looks like she has shot a few scenes with Dhanush, who was very excited to share screen space with her. She might not have a big role in the film, but she has a very interesting part to play," says a source.

The film marks the debut venture of Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara Haasan. Dhanush will be seen romancing Akshara. The film will also see producer-director Mahesh Bhatt in a special role. R. Balki directed Big B in 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa' and he is once again working with the 71-year-old actor in 'Shamitabh'.

Ilayaraja and PC Sriram will helm the music & cinematography of ‘Shamitabh’.  ‘Shamitabh’ will be released worldwide on 6th Feb 2015.
