On his official blog, Bachchan shared, “And then the lovely Waheeda Rehman, my favourite from the time I started seeing cinema…and her childlike mischievous banter, resonant from the time I met her 45 years ago, and then through films that I did with her...Reshma Shera, Kabhi Kabhie and Adalat and Trishul and so many other.”

Along with a string of photographs with Waheeda, Amitabh shared, “Still with Waheeda ji and sharing a little personal moment, which harps on the presence of some guests and their…well … never mind!”


The actor met the star of ageless classics Rehman, of Guide and Kaagaz Ke Phool at a book launch event in Mumbai.
