Big B’s long innings on the silver screen has created some memorable onscreen jodis
Amitabh Bachchan has romanced the best beauties from B-town on the 70mm right from Jaya Bhaduri (now Bachchan) to Rekha, Hema Malini, Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Tabu and even the late Jiah Khan. While we love Big B’s sizzling chemistry with all these beauties; on his birthday BollywoodLife would like to celebrate the best five heroines who made the perfect frame with the Shahenshah of Bollywood!
Rekha-Amitabh Bachchan – The eternal romance!
Their onscreen chemistry is as talked about as their off screen one. Whenever, wherever this duo comes together even today everybody goes click, click! No doubt then, when late Yash Chopra had cast them together in Silsila, everybody thought it was a casting coup! Will Anees Bazmee manage to pull off a Yash Chopra with Welcome Back? We’ll have to play the waiting game for now. But here’s a list of films you can watch – Silsila, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Do Anjaane, Mr Natwarlal, Suhag, Namak Haram.
Jaya-Amitabh Bachchan – Reel love to real!
The buzz was that Abhimaan showcased their real life story, was it? We dunno, but their performance was stellar. And not just this, they went on to feature in intense dramas, comedies and some classics. Pick up Abhimaan, Chupke Chupke, Sholay, Silsila, Zanjeer and even the recent Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Ghum and you cannot just miss the awesome chemistry this duo shares, real on reel – you pick which one is best!
Rakhee-Amitabh – The blockbuster jodi!
They did 15 films together and almost all of them are etched in the minds of Amitabh-Rakhee fans. We don’t know if it is the music of these films or simply the crackling chemistry that this pair brought on celluloid – Laawaris, Muqqaddar Ka Sikandar, Trishul, Kaala Patthar, Barsaat Ki Ek Raat, Kasme Vaade are some of our favourites!
Tabu-Amitabh – The sweet pair!
Amitabh–Tabu was a fresh pair that R Balk managed to pull off with elan in his film Cheeni Kum. While this pair did only one film together; their mature performances and bitter-sweet romance certainly makes us want more of this couple on the celluloid. Hopefully, another film that will get these two powerhouse performers together sometime soon, is R Balki listening???
Jiah Khan-Amitabh Bachchan – The controversial pair!
Ram Gopal Varma failed to make Nishabd a successful film, but Jiah Khan and Amitabh Bachchan together onscreen definitely got temperatures soaring. And Big B’s daring act to break the norm and work with a leading lady half his age won us over. He definitely proved to be an ageless star!
