SILSILA WAS REMARKABLE FOR ITS CASTING COUP WHICH APPEARED TO MIRROR A RUMOURED REAL LIFE LOVE TRIANGLE
It's been 34 years since actor Amitabh Bachchan's seminal Silsila released on July 29, 1981. #34YearsOfSilsila is one of the top trends on Twitter today.
Silsila, a cinematic examination of an extra-marital affair, was made more remarkable by director Yash Chopra's casting coup - he signed Amitabh Bachchan, his wife Jaya and actress Rekha in the roles that formed the three angles of the film's love triangle, one which appeared to mirror a rumoured real life triangle involving the three actors.
Mr Bachchan, now 72, posted a few images on Facebook:
On his official blog, the actor recalled his memories of Silsila:
"How also can one remove from memory the umteenth years that have transpired on the release of some of the films of then- Silsila 34 years."
On Twitter, Mr Bachchan retweeted pictures of him filming Silsila. This image features him with his co-star Rekha, while shooting Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, which is one of the most memorable tracks from the film:
Here, the Deewar actor is pictured with Mr Chopra, Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia and Shivkumar Sharma, the composers of Silsila's classic melodies:
Silsila was the last film that Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha made together. The actress had a cameo in R Balki's Shamitabh this year, which starred Mr Bachchan, but the former co-stars had no scenes together.
