TBT: Oh! What a lovely War! Feuding Mithun and Sridevi

Oh! What a lovely War! Feuding Mithun and Sridevi 
 

One thing you have to credit Lady No:1 is professionalism. Despite all those stories about Mithun Chakraborty and all her denials and the subsequent cooling-off., Sridevi is doing two films (A.F.Nadiadwala's yet untitled film and Guru)--even though they give the impression of not being on talking terms. 

But as an inebriated lyricist put it at the Guru mahurat bash: "See, Mithun is still desperate to marry Sridevi. But her mother's threated to disown her. So she doesn't look at him any more and he's just hoping for a change of heart. After all, Hema Malini also kept Dharmendra waiting for years, didn't she?" And you wish lyricists wouldn't babble too much after whiskey. If Mithun and Sridevi loo too romantic in these pics taken on the sets of Nadiadwala's film, it's because they are both good performers!
