Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan: Possibly Bollywood's most famous couple that wasn't, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha appeared in a series of hits including Do Anjaane, Mr Natwarlal in the 1970s. Their blazing on-screen chemistry was shadowed by rumours of an unacknowledged off-screen romance. The fabled romance came to an end in the filmiest of ways. Amitabh, wife Jaya and alleged paramour Rekha - acted together in Silsila (1981), a story that aped their purported real life triangle. Silsila was Amitabh and Rekha's last movie together, and the two have never exchanged a word in public since, as far as anyone can tell.
Recently Big B had said that he was ready to work with Rekha again: "Why not? Well, if someone comes to me with a good script, and I like it, I'd surely do a film with her."
But Big B and Jaya recently celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary on June 3.
