This is the story of when Amitabh Bachchan met Nagarjuna, Prabhu Ganesan and Shiva Rajkumar at Katrina Kaif's reel 'wedding', not real. Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan recently shot an advert not only with Katrina Kaif, in which she features as a bride, but also with south stars such as Nagarjuna, Prabhu and Shiva Rajkumar. Sharing a photo with "three superstars", Big B wrote: "Historic moment for Jaya and me... three superstar sons of three iconic legends' of Indian film industry work together with us... what honour. Nagarjuna - son Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Telugu. Shiva Rajkumar - son Dr Rajkumar, Kannada. Prabhu - son Sivaji Ganesan, Tamil." The photo is a behind-the-scenes shot from the advert shoot, which is reported to be that of Kalyan Jewellers. Take a look at Amitabh Bachchan's tweet here:

Amitabh Bachchan co-starred with Katrina Kaif in period piece Thugs Of Hindostan, which turned out to be a box office dud. Amitabh Bachchan has worked with Nagarjuna in films such as Agni Varsha and Khuda Gawah. They will also co-star in Ayan Mukerji's upcoming movie Brahmastra.
