Amitabh, Rekha to celebrate birthday on the same day

The magical pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha is an image of picture perfect love. More so it seems, as they both share their birthdays on alternate days.  Rekha on October 10th and Amitabh on October 11th.

Now the news is that, Jaya Bachchan would be celebrating Amitabh’s 70th birthday in a big way. The big bash is supposedly to take place at Reliance Studios, in Film city. The owners of Reliance Entertainment, Anil and Tina Ambani will be there. Also a host of other celebrities from all walks of life are supposed to be present.

Amitabh’s friends, designers Abu Jaani and Sandeep Khosla have come together to design a special suit for Amitabh, for the grand party.

Amitabh was quite taken aback by the hype generated by his birthday. He was quoted on saying on the micro blogging site twitter, “I am surprised and at times embarrassed by such interest shown.” He also said that his birthday might be very simple. During a press conference earlier he had said, “It is just going to be a normal birthday celebration for me this year. Birthday celebrations used to be another experience during childhood. Now they are very different.”

Rekha turns 58 this year. It has been learnt that she is quite happy that Amitabh’s birthday celebrations will be held on the same day as her birthday. The association of the two was just for nine films. But their on screen chemistry, symbolized a sort of everlasting love. In 1976 they acted together in their first film Dulal Guha’s ‘Do Anjanne’. Though, it was their next movie that captured the full essence of their relationship. It was the 1978 movie ‘Mukadaar ka Sikandar ’. Both of them earned rave reviews for their performances in that movie.

Later on they acted in many hit movie like , ‘Khoon Pasina', 'Ganga ki Saugandh', 'Suhaag', 'Mr Natwarlal' and 'Silsila'. ‘Silsila’ was actually the last movie that they acted together. ‘Silsila’ very well brought out the relationship triangle between the three, Jaya-Amitabh-Rekha. The highlight of the movie was the song ‘Yeh Kahaan Aagaye Hum’, in which Amitabh lended his own voice, making it an evergreen melodious song.

The cold vibes between Jaya and Rekha was quite evident, once when Amitabh was hospitalized, after his accident on the sets of ‘Coolie’. It was rumored that Rekha was not allowed to visit him.

It was once heard that filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali may have them pair together, but it never really happened.
