Amitabh Bachchan was photographed greeting actress Rekha with a “namaste” at the 20th Annual Screen Awards.

In fact, his wife, Jaya Bachchan, was also spotted bonding with the yesteryear queen at the event.

Amitabh Bachchan, who was rumoured to be dating Rekha long ago, had not acknowledged her in public since their last film together, Silsila in 1981 – so the occasion was a treat for their fans and the media, who took numerous pictures of the encounter. The bad vibes between Jaya Bachchan and Rekha seemed to have vanished and with them the pair’s discomfort at being photographed.

The on-screen and alleged off-screen chemistry between Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan was much talked about in the 1980s and the media had fun writing about a romance. But Big B got upset and the two kept apart. –
