I am open to working with Rekha, says Amitabh Bachchan

Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha are considered to be an all time popular on-screen pair in Bollywood and the megastar says he will not rule out the possibility of working with the veteran actress in future films.

The two have starred together in films like Silsila, Mr Natwarlal, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar and the 72-year-old actor, who will be next seen in R Balki's Shamitabh, said the director wants to make a movie with him and Rekha.

"Balki keeps threatening me that he wants to design a film together... Let me see if someone has a story which is appropriate... then why not," Bachchan said during the trailer launch of the film here. Shamitabh also stars Rekha and there were speculations about the pair coming together on the screen but Bachchan has cleared the air saying the actress does not share any scene with him in the film.

"We actually don't come together, it is a part of a sequence. When people will watch the film they will understand. It is always nice to have such great luminaries in the film," he said. Shamitabh is Balki and Bachchan's third collaboration after Cheeni Kum and Paa. The film also has south superstar Dhanush and will mark the debut of Akshara Haasan, who is the younger daughter of actor Kamal Hassan and Sarika.

When asked about the unique title of the film, Balki said, "A title like Dhamitabh or Hamitabh would have sound very weird so that's why this unique title." Dhanush, who made his Bollywood debut in 2013 with Raanjhanaa, said he feels blessed to work with Bachchan. "It was a great experience just watching him," he said.

Akshara thanked Balki for showing confidence in her and casting her in the film alongside Dhanush and Bachchan. "I was very scared to work with Mr Bachchan and Dhanush but they both made me comfortable." Shamitabh will hit theatres on February 6.
