Inquillab, Akhree Rasta and Khuda Gawah remain successful for the careers of both of them. Amitabh Bachchan also played a cameo role in English Vinglish (2009). This picture is something that will hit all the fans of Sridevi as she has her first death anniversary on 24 February. It was very sudden and came as shock to everyone. Amitabh Bachchan also wrote a heartfelt note on his blog for Sridevi last year after her cremation ceremonies were performed. Talking about other actors, who accompanied Amitabh Bachchan were Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Neelam Kothari. Salman at that time had his first movie Maine Pyaar kiya released. Aamir Khan was already a few films old and Neelam Kothari was already a star. To conclude, Amitabh Bachchan called the day and event as ‘Historic’ and he also made everyone ‘nostalgic’!
Amitabh and Sridevi had multiple releases together that had successful pairing. There was time when Sridevi was known as lady Amitabh Bachchan in the industry, she was so confidant of her own abilities that she had declined to act in movies with Amitabh Bachchan and her grievance was that no matter how hard she worked the credit will go to him and she didn’t want to compromise with her due credit. She created her own niche and she was very sure of herself. Things with Amitabh came to such a pass that man of his stature had to send a truck full of roses to make the mercurial actress agree to act with him in “Khuda Gawah”, in which she performed a double role. They did very few movies together, but shared good chemistry and warm relationship with each other professionally.
English Vinglish was the last movie they shared screen space with each other.
When Sridevi made a debut in Bollywood she had no knowledge of Hindi and Bollywood super star of that time Rekha used to dub for the newcomer, in the process they got very close to each other and incidentally, Amitabh first met Sridevi than and during that meeting Big B appreciated Sridevi’s beauty, by complementing that you are very beautiful. It is also a part of folklore that Rekha was Sridevi’s style guru and taught her the finer points of makeup. The two actresses shared a very cordial relationship throughout their life.
