Why were Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan in the same flight?

Here’s the truth behind the now-famous Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha picture

Uncannily, just when stories of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha coming together in Anees Bazmee’s Welcome Back were doing the rounds, a photo of them together went viral on the Internet. The photograph shows Big B sitting in an aircraft posing with the pilot. In a seat behind him Rekha is visible. Real or morphed? While the reports of the legendary screen reunion are completely untrue, the photograph is real.

A source close to Big B reveals, “Amitji was not aware of the other passengers on board. There were many Bollywood personalities travelling to Chennai for a celebration of 100 years of Indian cinema. It is a sheer coincidence that they ended up on the same flight. If someone is trying to suggest a rendezvous here, it is ridiculous. Because if that were the case, they would ensure they weren’t on the same flight.”

It may be recalled that the unpredictable diva had suddenly turned up at a suburban hotel during Big B’s 60th birthday bash, uninvited. She had stormed into the lobby and quickly ducked out without actually entering the venue. Hence Rekha’s presence on the same flight may or may not be a coincidence. But the fact is, they never came face-to-face before during or after the flight to Chennai.

However, sources close to Big B are disgusted by reports claiming Rekha and he are coming together for a film. Says an insider, “He is not doing that film. He isn’t aware of who the other actors in the film are.”
