Though they were both No:1 superstars throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Sridevi did just three films with the legend, Amitabh Bachchan. Inquilab (1984), Aakhri Raasta (1986) and finally, the best of the lot, Khuda Gawah (1992).
We have images from those films and other events where Sridevi and Amitab Bachchan shared the same frame.
What's most notable about this film is, as Sridevi was still new to Hindi films, she didn't speak the language clearly so 'the' Rekha (the legendary actress) dubbed for her friend Sri in this film. For fans of Bollywood - its as clear as can be, Rekha's iconic husky voice is oh so obviously hers in this film.
Released in the summer of 86 (6 June 1986 to be exact), the film was a hit. It was yet another film where Bachchan had a double role - and his co-stars were the southern belles Sridevi and Jaya Prada.
Update: Correction, the best of the lot, English Vinglish! (2012)
UPDATE: And in 2012, Amitabh Bachchan did a guest appearance in Sridevi's fabulous English Vinglish. We live in perpetual hope that the two legends of Indian cinema will reunite again on screen.
UPDATE: Amitabh Bachchan posts on Facebook:
